4 days in Madrid

No, unfortunately, it’s not me who’s going to Madrid. But I’ve been there twice and I’ve been asked to sort of organize a 4-days trip there for friends… So, why don’t share here a nice list of places you can see if you happen to be in Madrid? It will also give me the opportunity to write a bit more about some of these attractions on other posts and to tell you about my experience there! Of course, this is only a selection of all the things you could do and see in Madrid…

I won’t include museums, as I’m planning something different for this topic.

Let’s get started!

  • Chamberí Station: a former underground station, now a museum.


  • San Miguel Market: full of delicious food. You have to try the kiwi smoothie if you happen to be there.
  • Church of San Manuel y San Benito: with the stunning cupola full of mosaic.

  • Estación de Madrid Atocha: a railway station full of plants and turtles!
  • Plaza Mayor: the main traditional square with the beautiful Arco de Cuchilleros.
  • San Ginés library: an almost hidden gem on the corner of a tiny street.

  • Almudena Cathedral: the colors!!!
  • Parque del Retiro: a huge park, where you can also find the Palacio de Cristal, built in 1887 for an exhibition of the Philippines.
  • Librería Bardón: selling ancient and rare books… Stunning!
