That’s the end of my short stay in Madrid, which was unfortunately just a little too hot. But, I’ll have to come again as I have two metro journeys left unused on my ticket, and I want to make the most of them. I might well come back during a slightly cooler period of the year though….

It’s a rather lovely city, although I only got to explore a relatively small part of it. Not quite as vibrant as Seville, and perhaps not quite as historic as I had expected, but still full of atmosphere and character.
