    It is a ride that is interrupted every few minutes with countless crosses. Good thing is that you have enough shade. You can see some other interesting, but nothing monumental building. I do not recommend it for children. It is preferable to walk through another Avenue and leave it for the residents. For being an area supposedly high level was quite dirty.

    This is a long and wide Boulevard descendants to the North of the downtown area. Although you can find some historic buildings and museums, the main shopping centre at least one point of Fame like Bernabeu, it lacks the kind of magic. Just the way wide and long for car traffic.

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
