Ever since I can remember remembering, Madrid has always been high on my travel list. It took me 28 years to finally visit, but the wait was highly worth it. I spent four nights in the Spanish capital and it does not disappoint! The impeccable architecture, delicious cuisine and epicurean culture make it is a traveller's paradise. In this photo essay, I kept the exhaustive writing at bay and let the beauty of the city take centre stage. However I didn't leave you hanging when it comes to planning your own Madrid itinerary, in my vlog post THE TOP FIVE ATTRACTIONS IN MARDID, I show you my favorite city spots through a narrated video guide, check it out!
