There is so much to do and see in Madrid!
Madrid is the capital of the diverse country of Spain. While the royal family no longer lives in Spain – the royal palace is located here.
The streets are winding which you will eventually get accustomed to ( after a day or so) and even after a day of drinking canas you will be able to find your way home.
A must stop is San Gines which opened in 1894 and is world famous for their Churros con Chocolate.
They are open 24 hours so after a night of enjoying Madrids’ night life you can grub down.
Pool time and tinto de verano. ( what the locals drink)
We stayed at Way Hostel C/Relatores 17 Madrid Spain http://www.wayhostel.com/
Our hostel provided churros every morning for breakfast it was so amazing with some dark, hair on your chest, coffee.
If you like to meet people and interact with your fellow travelers then this is a great place for you!
I wouldn’t recommend going in July unless you enjoy hot hot heat, other than that GO and enjoy Madrid it is a remarkable city.
