Madrid is a unique city, that’s undeniable. It’s an amazing place thanks to everything that it has to offer in all of its ways, places and aspects. Whether it’s its broad cultural offer with a large selection of music, drama and art shows; its traditional district or city-wide festivals, the many exhibitions and large-scale events which take place such as fairs and/or congresses, its exquisite and delicious cuisine… We could go on and on with the many interesting things to do and see in Madrid.

Many of these features and places to visit are well known by everyone but there are others which perhaps are not as famous yet still awaken curiosity. If you visit Madrid regularly, you have to discover them.


1.- In Madrid, you can buy and eat the best sweets made by cloistered nuns in the traditional way. You can buy them at the Monastery of Las Descalzas and sweeten your visit to the city, with the added mystery of only seeing the seller’s hand when you purchase then.

2.- Although it might be a bit of a dark “attraction”, the truth is that many people visit it. We are talking about Calle Antonio Grilo, also known as “the street of crimes” due to the legend which says that many crimes were committed here. The street is quite an attraction for those in search of a gloomier place to visit.

3.- No matter what they say about eggs increasing your cholesterol levels, you cannot leave the city without trying the delicious huevos rotos at Casa Lucio. You won’t have tried anything like them before and it’s not as if you can eat them every day…

4.- You can travel around Europe without leaving Madrid at Parque Europa, where you will find replicas of Copenhagen’s The Little Mermaid, London Bridge and many other famous European monuments.

5.- Only in Madrid can you visit the starting point of all Spanish roads. Known as “Kilómetro 0”, a legendary spot in Puerta del Sol always full of tourists which is a must-see. Make your way through the crowds to take a photo or come at a less busy time, but don’t leave without one.

6.- Have a photograph taken with your favourite celebrity at the Wax Museum. If there is someone you’ve always wanted a photo with and doing so in real life might be a bit complicated, at the Madrid Wax Museum you will definitely find him or her and have your souvenir forever. Guaranteed fun.

7.- At Palacio de Linares (Casa de América), you will be able to see for yourself whether the ghosts they say live there actually exist. The legend says that they do and it seems that it is true, but it’s best to go and see it for yourself. If you hear nothing strange, at least you will have visited one of Madrid’s most beautiful and special buildings.
