Despite being the country’s Capital, Madrid does not seem to enjoy the reputations of city’s such as Barcelona or Seville. Sadly, it is a city which cannot be experienced in just a few days; but to spend a bit longer there allows you to discover its real beauty.
The gallery aims to show that Madrid deserves its spot as one of Spain’s most interesting destinations, and one which can hold its own as a world renowned travel spot.
