7.19.14 Walking Madrid

Jul 20, 2014 | travel & adventure | 2 comments

A thousand miles. That’s the estimate Tim and I arrived at when we calculated how far we walked to cover the sites on our list for the first full day in Madrid. And still it was not nearly enough, there is so much to discover in this magical city. I was most captivated by the Goya frescos at the chapel of the San Antonio de la Florida, an unassuming little church that proves you can’t judge a book by its cover.

Of all there was to see, I was awed by this angel in blue.

We were also wowed by Parque del Retiro and its botanical gardens. You could spend hours wandering here and never want for something interesting to see. And in fact, we did.
