  • Not too big but is free and interesting
  • Not much to see.
  • Beautiful Museum of the origins of Madrid (also called Museum of San Isidro). Every corner is worthwhile but if you had to choose I would stay with its garden, where through the history of Madrid through its Botany, and store, place in which are stacked neatly countless pieces worthy of being observed

  • STOP 3.-PLAZA DE SAN ANDRÉS: MUSEUM OF SAN ISIDRO. On the way to the Plaza de Carros, it is worthwhile to stop at the jewelery and ornament shop "of stone", in The No. 10 of the street of the almond tree. Its facade is constructed from black slate, and can be observed areas of network color Due to the oxidation of the slate
