Spain / Madrid
A spacious and sunny flat with clear views of the sierra mountains, situated in a typical Madrid neighborhood "barrio" in the northern side of Central Madrid. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms.
This neighborhood has a lot of pedestrians, tapas bars, Mom & Pop shops, green spaces, and a shopping Centre. The area is close to the Plaza Castilla landmark and the Chamartin Train Station. Lots of public transport options: metro (tube), buses, and the city train (Cercanias).
*HIDDEN CITY TREASURES: *the ancient Arabic wall remains below the Segovia Viaduct and the local stories (why the name of the bar "Esperanza" next to Segovia Viaduct is so ironic), *hidden places for city views (terraced bars above the Plaza Tirso de Molina and Lavapiés), *hidden gardens in the Madrid de los Austrias and its nearby twin streets Cava Baja and Cava Alta that never sleep, *pubs in Malasaà±a that exist since the 80s counter-culture-movement "movida madrileà±a" (start of Almodovar's career) , *the university-crowd pubs around the "bajos de Moncloa" which still glorify heavy-metal and have cheap beer, *the Basque pintxos bars around Cava Baja street, *the great croquettes at Javier Bardem's family's eatery near Chueca, *the very authentic old men bars on every block, *the Indian and Moroccan restaurants in ethnically diverse Lavapiés, *the best place for grilled sardines and snails at the Sunday flea-market "El Rastro", *the pubs on Sunday afternoons in "La Latina" neighborhood, etc.
*DAY TRIPS FROM MADRID: Toledo, Segovia, Aranjuez, Alcala de Henares, Avila, Pedraza, the sierra mountains, etc.
