A Weekend in Madrid: What To Do & EatWednesday, March 08, 2017
Last weekend my friend Marie and I rushed out of the office at 5pm on Friday and hopped on a plane to Madrid to surprise our friend Isaure for her birthday. We didn't have much time when we were there as most of it was filled with birthday celebrations (food, partying, drinks) however we managed to fit in some sightseeing and traditional Spanish food, so if you're in Madrid for a weekend, or even a day, here are some top must-do things whilst you're there!
Walk around the Parque del Buen Retiro and hire a rowing boat
Visit the Palacio de Cristal
Try authentic churros at Chocolatería San Ginés
Visit the Plaza MayorOne of the main squares in Madrid, absorb the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy the views of some of the most beautiful buildings.
Eat your way through the Mercado de San Miguel
Visit the Templo de Debodaka the Temple of Debod. If it doesn't initially strike you as looking very Spanish, you're right because it's actually an ancient Egyptian temple from 200 BC which was donated to Spain in 1968.
You can find it at Calle Ferraz 1.
