Why are we in love with Madrid?

23 Sep

Madrid is a cosmopolitan and historic city, and a great place to experience the best of Spanish culture, art, and cuisine. Unlike many other popular European cities, many of Madrid’s best attractions, including some of its museums, can be visited without having to crack open your wallet. But we love Madrid for several other reasons:

1. We ❤ la Gran Vía

This is Madrid’s most famous street, full of people 24/7. Gran Via is a home for Michelin-starred restaurants, cafes, and high-end boutiques. But a stroll down the street also leads past some great examples of classic Spanish architecture, and never forget to raise your eyes to the rooftops: Breathtaking.

Interesting Festival!

SAVING FOR CUBA

So it’s September. A completely ridiculous time to be pumping out a blog post about a festival held annually in July. But given it’s in Spain, you may need 10 months to save enough money to get there.

La Fiesta de Santa Marta de Ribarteme, or the Festival of Near Death Experiences, makes an absolute mockery of La Tomatina and Running with the Bulls on the scale of crazy experiences and culture. Just like the name suggests, the event recognises individuals that came freakishly close to kicking the bucket during the year that’s gone by. In most parts of the world, people would just say a quick prayer of thanks and sink a couple of tallies, but that’s not exactly the Spanish style.

Rather, the aforementioned near deathers jump into (actual) caskets and get carried to a local hill by friends and family. Here, they take a moment to reflect upon the…

Places we love because of their madness. Part II.

2 Sep

Let’s finish the previous post with more of the craziest buildings ever built in spain.

Número Ocho: Ariane 5 at Sevilla’s Expo.

What is it: The Expo Sevilla 92 changed Sevilla completely. Sevilla has always been a traditional city and the Expo opened it to the world. Lots of beatiful buildings are still at the old Expo’s terrains, one of them this Ariane 5 exact copy. There’s no need to go to Cape Kennedy to see rockets!

What do we think when we look at it: ehm… the Ariane 5?

Valencia

Número Nueve: Hungary’s pavilion at Sevilla.

We wanted to make a small post about the craziest buildings you can find in our lovely country. But after doing some research…Wow… we cannot name all of them in just ONE post!

Valencia

Número Dos: Sagrada Familia.
