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.

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.

Con la primavera, el arte sale a la calle

Madrid Street Art Project

With the warm spring temperatures and the sun making regular appearances, everyone wants to get out on the street and plans multiply themselves, whether they are cultural, leisure, drinks on a terrace… any excuse is a good one so you can get some sun in after a long winter. Because days are longer, you can now enjoy a late afternoon on a nice terrace having a cool drink and, if your surroundings change and become pure art, all the better.

That is precisely what will happen on the streets of the legendary district of Lavapiés because from the 7th until the 21st of May, most of them will become an artistic intervention. C.A.L.L.E. is the name of this colourful and creative festival that, for the second year running, lands on the facades, shop windows and exterior spaces of shops to turn them into a huge masterpiece of urban art.

Today, the marketing and communication activities of companies as well as the sales techniques have changed and adapted themselves to the current needs of mobility, product accessibility and profiles, both of the client and the teams that make up said companies. As part of the motivation activities that are developed in trainings, there is an increasing need to be in touch with teams to bring them closer to products, especially when we can see that they are decentralised from the office and spread around different locations.

For this, it’s very useful to carry out certain meetings or gatherings with your team, during which you can show the company’s numbers, its objectives, novelties and also listen to the best sales people in our company: the staff.

15 de mayo: Madrid en fiestas por San Isidro

By | 15 May, 2014 | 0 comments

Chulapos, de  Alex Bikfalvi

There are two dates in the calendar in which the people of Madrid bring out their regional attire. The city dresses up for partying and regional dancing and food take over, food such as the entresijos (lamb mesentery), gallinejas (chitterlings) and rosquillas (doughnuts).

One of those dates is in August, the Festival of the Virgen de la Paloma. However, the more important date is San Isidro, celebrated on May 15th.

San Isidro is Madrid’s patron saint, a farmer who lived in the 11th century during the reign of King Alfonso X. Both San Isidro and his wife were devotees and many miracles are attributed to them, miracles related with healing, animals and water.

These wedded saints have been venerated in Madrid for many centuries. San Isidro has the Ermita del Santo chapel dedicated to him, a small sanctuary built around a water spring that, stories say, the saint made appear one day that his master was thirsty. Before the construction of this chapel in the 18th century, there was another chapel in its place, built by order of Empress Isabel of Portugal, wife of King Carlos I. They say that the queen was grateful because those waters had healed her son, who was no other than future king Felipe II.

During the days of the festival, the surrounding area of the chapel is filled with stalls, food stalls and locals dressed with traditional attire, such as the chulapo, sitting on the grass and enjoying the spring sun. The area is usually very busy but if you come to Madrid at this time of year, you cannot miss out on coming here for a walk to see the most traditional side of the city.

There is still somewhere else we can see San Isidro. If you walk on the Puente de Toledo bridge you will see Baroque-style alcoves in the middle of the route. They are San Isidro and his wife Santa María de la Cabeza, looking at each other face to face for the rest of eternity.

The month of May and the Festival of San Isidro is one of the best times to visit Madrid. At Hotel Liabeny we offer you four-star accommodation in a perfect location in the centre of Madrid, a stone’s throw from the Puerta del Sol, from where you can easily and quickly get to the places where the main festival events take place either walking or on public transport.
