madrid day two part 2

Ahhhh I’m so sorry, I haven’t posted in ages. It’s been crazy trying to be an adult so I have to adjust my time management. Anyways here is part 2…

After our lunch we headed to our afternoon guided tour which was nice and relaxing, we even got a chance to see the bull fighting stadium which we wouldn’t have been able to otherwise. And luckily it rained while we were on the tour so we stayed dry in the comfort of the bus.

Once our tour finished we walked through the plaza España and then up to the Debod temple (the oldest building in Madrid) from there we explored the old town and enjoyed walking down all the curving narrow streets.

Of course we also had to stop and have some chocolate and churros at San Gines, as Madrid is know for it. Pictures to come in separate food post.

We even ran into a wedding so we stopped to see the bride and groom and snap some pics. After dong some shopping it started to rain again so we need to find shelter and food…

We happened upon this little restaurant called Le Maria and omg…. this was by far the best meal we had on our entire trip. I have never been wined and dined in this fashion ever before but now I wish it were how I dine every night. Included in our 2.2 euro service charge was a glass of prosecco, gazpacho, crackers and cheese, bread and then after dinner an orange smoothie, and a vat of coffee liqueur. It was unlike anything I’ve ever experience and I loved every minute of it. If you are in Madrid you NEED to go.

By then the rain had let up and we headed back to our hotel for the night.
