According to the 2017-2018 Airbnb experiences report shared with the press, Spain’s capital counts with 91% 5 stars reviews; all of them only from activities offered in the Autonomous Community. In this data sheet, it is also explained that people who travel to Madrid do it all year long contrary to the studies that show seasonal peaks. When are you planning on visiting SPain? High or low season? Whatever your answer is, Cooltourspain will be waiting to guide you while in the city, doing it in an alternative way and exploring Lavapiés and Malasaña neighborhoods. Let’s see what places you can discover if you are willing to sightsee Madrid through its graffiti and street art.
Travel to Madrid and discover its urban gardens.
Many travellers who get to the city are doing their homework before the departure. People surf the net and look for information which is shared, especially by locals. Bars, cafés or restaurants are among the most popular keywords but today we’ll mostly focus on those community projects which will make you travel to Madrid differently. The first of the spots listed in our guide is a special & vibrant place. We consider it as one of the most beautiful urban gardens in Madrid. Esto es una plaza, located in Calle Doctor Fourquet, 24 will totally amaze you! This locally-organized and city council-owned location features the artwork of internationally known artists such as Roa or Blu, but it also counts with a green house where seeds grow. They are then planted and if you are interested in collaborating, you should know that the gardening tools are all waiting for your contribution. Once the seeds turn into vegetables you will recollect some of them as if it would be a cooperative organization: lettuce, green peppers, broccoli, artichoques, mint leaves, peas… We would also recommend you to check Solar Antonio Grilo (Calle Antonio Grilo), which is a similar space to the one mentioned earlier in the paragraph.
Travel to Madrid and support Rayo Vallecano.
Sports lovers may know that there are two famous football teams in town, Real Madrid and Atlético de Madrid. Both of them count with supporters from all over the world, but our readers may not recall that there exists one team which stands out because of their style and philoshopy. Today we would like to recommend you to travel to Madrid and head towards Teresa Rivero Stadium, where Rayo Vallecano plays. They fight all seasons to stay in the first division but has not been possible for them all the time, and they are playing in second division this year. We would recommend you to visit this stadium because of the supporters. Vallecas neighborhood is a working-class district located in the Southeast of the city, and it also features probably the best panoramic views in Madrid.
Why should you travel to Madrid?
Another important reason that travellers should take into account while plannig a visit to our city is its nightlife. Spain in general is worldwide known because its all night long parties. Our national and local laws permit bars and clubs to have a license which allows them to open until late (see 5:30AM).
Many people decide to travel to Madrid because of this, and we curated a guide which features the nightclubs where you will listen to the best dance & underground music. The electronic music clubs in Madrid are located all around, being Fabrik the biggest & most famous. Amazing, isn’t it? Also, we would recommend you to check the best graffiti in Madrid.
Travel to Madrid during summer time.
As mentioned earlier in this post, people get to the city during all seasons, but if you are open to recommendations, do it during summer time! Why should you travel to Madrid either on July or August? THE CITY IS EMPTY! People who love in town do come from different parts of the country and it’s during summer months that they enjoy the holidays. Consequently, there are no cars and you will observe that there is no traffic, and the atmosphere is cleaner. In that sense, we would suggest you to go from Plaza Castilla to Buitrago de Lozoya and hike to the natural pool of Buitrago. This natural paradise is located just 1 hour away from the city center. This pool gets the fresh water from the mountains; the perfect plan for high temperatures!
