  • Templo de Debod

  • Catedral de la Almudena

    Next to the Palace, Palacio Real in Madrid there is the Almudena-Cathedral. The outside is really cool. What I liked most were the doors! I think I have never seen doors as nice as them! Such a nice colour mix - black-green. And there are some nice details to find....

  • Palacio Real

    Well, there is not so much to say about that palace. It's quite big but a little bit boring, just a building. To be honest, on the outside it's quite dirty. I don't know why the Spanish let decay a building which is so representative - I mean, that's the palace!...

  • Palacio de Cristal

    Whilst walking through Buen Retiro, I found the Palacio de Cristal... I found myself walking through Buen Retiro Park, which, to me, seems like Madrid's very own version of Central Park. The park is both huge and pretty, and when I thought that it couldn't get any more...

  • Estadio Santiago Bernabéu

    Without a doubt one of the main attractions in Madrid is the famous Santiago Bernabéu stadium, opened in 1947. And, really, it's not just for football lovers or fans of Real Madrid F. C. - personally, I'm not a football fan myself, but even so I thoroughly enjoyed the...
