Almost without realising, summer is over and we are dressing up in scary costumes to celebrate Halloween and suddenly it’s almost Christmas. November has arrived and the streets light up to welcome Santa Claus in the most important time of year for shops, families, gatherings and reunions…Everything is important at Christmas and it has now arrived.

Madrid really enjoys Christmas. It seems like a different city, even more beautiful if that’s even possible. There are lights on all the streets, warmth in all of its spaces, smiles everywhere, chestnut sellers on the streets bringing a bit of warmth and traditional smells and a never-ending list of events that allow you to experience a unique and magnificent holiday from now onwards.

Nature can always bring us benefits in many different aspects. We have within our reach, and closer than we think, many different tools that can increase our wellbeing and good health. Since ancestral times, everything that nature brings us has been used and put into practice, making it the centre of our existence. With time and due to mankind’s creative and inventive skills, we have left some of these natural tools and applications behind in favour of other synthetic materials, despite the fact that, recently, there has been an increasing interest in bringing back what’s healthy and natural. This is where this new aesthetic and wellness therapy comes from, which has wood as its main protagonist.

Like aromatherapy, colour therapy, or other alternative therapies that help us balance our energy, the one that we present today, wood therapy, helps us improve our body and get rid of the stress that we can get due to bad postures or knocks.

Just like theatres and the cultural programme of the city, in autumn the craft markets start to poke their heads out once again, selling vintage and decoration items as well as items of other trends, earning more and more fans as time goes on. The new craft market season promises to be a success in terms of visitors, which results in better quality items and also in bringing a different kind of plan to the city, a special and fun plan for the whole family, couples or friends on weekends. And, why not, you can even go alone, since it’s always nice to spend a little time by yourself doing what you like best.

-        Mercado de Motores: One of Madrid’s classic craft markets. With many years of experience, it is back stronger than ever this month of September, preparing for an even better autumn. You cannot miss a visit to this market on the second weekend of every month, located in the Museo del Ferrocarril. Inside you can find many craftsmen that develop their creativity in decoration, fashion, accessories and a whole range of gourmet products elaborated in a homemade and ecological way that will result in a treat to your taste buds. Here you can have breakfast, lunch, an afternoon snack or even a nice cocktail with cool background music that you can even dance to. Let your imagination fly, because everything goes at Mercado de Motores.

September Art in Madrid

By | 28 August, 2015 | 0 comments


Madrid does not ever seem to go on holiday, even when most people seem to be enjoying one, which means that the city never stops. However, when things go back to normal in September, the new cultural and leisure programmes regenerate, offering exhibitions and activities that you must not miss starting in late August or early September. Art, in any of its expressions, is a reference in Madrid at any time of year, and these dates are a must if you want to make your return to work a little lighter or even make your holidays better if you are lucky enough to still be enjoying them.

1950s New York can be enjoyed until September 26th at Galería Bernal Espacio thanks to the photographs of the time taken by photo artist Vivian Maier. She was unknown until four years ago, when collector John Maloof discovered her work at an auction and acquired a few film rolls that still had not been developed. He had planned to use them for a private project but when he saw what they contained, he did not hesitate publish this artist’s work. Maier never developed her film rolls and since she did not have any family, her work never saw the light. She was a solitary nanny who was hiding a huge treasure.

Brunch essentials

By | 2 August, 2015 | 0 comments


A few years ago, Spain received a new culinary trend coming straight from New York. Some of us thought it would go away as quickly as it come but it turned out not to be the case, brunch was here to stay as one of the best weekend plans to share with friends or family. However, what is brunch exactly?

Brunch is a meal that, as its name indicates, a mixture of breakfast and lunch and you can enjoy it between the times where you would have these two meals as a substitute to both. The word appeared for the first time in 1896 in the popular British upper-class magazine, Punch. Wealthy English people enjoy a breakfast buffet on Sunday mornings that their butlers left served before taking the day off. The buffet covered breakfast and lunch so that no cooking was needed when the help was not at work.

Do you like trains? Come to the Railway Museum

By | 15 July, 2015 | 0 comments

Museo Ferrocarril MadridCan you imagine travelling on a real journey on an early-20th-century train from Madrid to Aranjuez? You can actually do this thanks to the legendary Strawberry Train, El Tren de la Fresa. It leaves the Railway Museum, the Museo del Ferrocarril, at 10.00am and returns from Aranjuez at 6.00pm. The price includes the historical value of travelling on such a machine, and it costs 29.90€ for adults and 14.95€ for children.

However, to immerse yourself in the picturesque world of trains you do not necessarily need to board one, since you can discover it at the Railway Museum itself, in the heart of the Arganzuela district. Located in the old Delicias station, which reminisces of the old steelwork stations like Gare Saint-Lazare in Paris, it contains an interesting collection of old locomotives.

By | 15 June, 2015 | 0 comments


We already know that in, order to organise a business event, it is very important to do so under quality parameters of the highest standard. Conveying what our product or service represents in the event that we have been entrusted to organise is a task that requires plenty of attention to detail and responsibility. All of the items involved are of great importance but everything must start by choosing an appropriate location for the event and, like we said in one of our previous posts, a hotel like Liabeny can solve many of the situations that may occur in such an event with complete guarantees.

Every 3rd of June is Organ and Tissue Donor Day. It is a happy day of celebration but, of course, also commemorates all the people that carry out the biggest act of generosity that exists in life. It is essential to be grateful to all the people who choose to gift life to others who need it when theirs has reached the end of the road, a great act of bravery and altruism for which they will receive nothing in exchange but which will change the receiver’s life.

Spain is a world leader in organ transplants. 2014 closed with a ratio of 36 donors per million people, a high number that resulted in 4,360 transplant operations according to the Spanish Transplant Organisation (ONT), perhaps the body that works best in Spain, carrying out an impeccable job.
