RELAX AT THE EMBLEMATIC CASA DE CAMPO
After walking around and visiting museums and monuments you might need some relax and peace in order to disconnect of the noisy city. We propose a good plan, visiting Casa de Campo!
With more than 1722 hectares, Casa de Campo is by far the biggest park of Madrid. In the old times it was property of the Spanish kingdom and it was often used as a hunting area by the kings but, after the proclamation of Republic, it was given to the people of Madrid. In this park you could relax yourself and disconnect of the traffic, but if you still want to have and do activities in Madrid you could visit the theme park or ride in a cable car, where you will have a stunning view of the city. Like Maria Luisa Park in Seville, Casa de Campo is the lung of the city and essential in order to purify the air.
DISCOVER THE BOHEMIAN NEIGHBORHOOD OF MALASAÑA
If you want to meet a neighborhood with style and personality, you should go to Malasaña. Known as the bohemian suburb of Madrid, Malasaña was in its beginnings a humble neighborhood of poor people. Due to the lack of opportunities many neighbors started their own business. As a result, many artists and painters emerged in that area and this gave a strong personality to the neighborhood. As time went by the suburb transformed and it took a bohemian and vindictive style among its streets. You can easily see it in its paints and studios. Today is a neighborhood that has many students, attracted by its rocker and youth style. If you want to meet some of its famous bars we recommend you to visit la Via Lactea and Tupperwar, both will entertain you with a rock and pop music that will take you to the 80s.
