Description

Madrid, the city that never sleeps (except in the afternoon), comes under scrutiny in this guide. Madrid's most enjoyable sights, from the trio of great art museums to leafy local squares, are thoroughly explored, along with its cultural quirks and the best of its legendary nightlife. The guide includes: serious snacking - where to find gourmet tapas and wine lists to match, with over 200 bar, cafe and restaurant reviews; art in the frame - from deeply religious to wonderfully weird, Goya to Dali, where to find it and how to appreciate it; a load of bull - like it or not, bullfighting is here to stay; get out of here - dozens of climbing, skiing and paragliding possibilities within easy reach, plus tranquil country escapes; and full-colour maps of Madrid, Segovia and Toledo.show more
