More Walking in Madrid

Madrid is a beautiful, walkable city filled with parks, museums, and grand architecture. It also has a great metro system that is easy to use and super clean compared to any other metro I’ve used. The weather was cold and the skies were cloudy during most of our days in Madrid. It was perfect weather for enjoying a cafe con leche to warm ourselves in between sight-seeing.

We were wandering and exploring the quaint winding streets near Puerta Del Sol and we stumbled upon Chocolateria San Ginés. This beautiful chocolateria is tucked away on the lovely Pasadizo de San Ginés and is famous for its chocolate con churros.

This is Mercado de San Miguel very near Plaza Mayor. It’s a wonderful place to have tapas and enjoy the atmosphere. It is surrounded in glass and filled with dozens of food vendors.

It was about 48 degrees fahrenheit for most of our trip. It was great, but I would love to spend some time in Madrid once Spring has sprung. I hear its even more beautiful.
