If you are in a situation to experience one of these amazing short stays in apartments in Madrid, there are a number of activities that can make your visit special and different. Therefore, we suggest you some different and original, but certainly fabulous things that this city has to offer.
Would you like to enjoy in flamenco? For starters, flamenco is perceived as a form of colorful and cheerful singing and dancing. In fact, it originated from Andalusian Gypsies, which was expressed through their performance. If what you want is to see and enjoy in authentic flamenco, go to a bar. You will find a lot of these bars in Madrid. Prepare yourself to stay awake until midnight, when you go out to enjoy in a flamenco show in which performers and dancers reflect the passion, power and grace that are contagious. There are purists when it comes to the “true” flamenco, but even for the most demanding tastes there are good places in Madrid, we recommend Casa Patas or the Coral de la Pacheca, but in reality, there are many tablaos in which you can learn and enjoy flamenco in Madrid.
If what you want is to enjoy contemporary art and creation, we suggest you to visit Matadero Madrid. This building, originally a neo-Moorish building, was the center of trade of the city. It has now become a place of contemporary creation, and some of its facilities are la Casa del Lector, la Central del Diseño, una Cineteca, una Nave de Música, las Naves del Español and the ship called Intermediae. The billboard remains diverse and attractive throughout the year. You should not limit your visit only to the traditional museums, as you should take into consideration this interesting proposal.
And if you are looking for gastronomic delight, we suggest you to try out traditional mantecados. The mantecado is a type of pastry or a typically Spanish bun. There are several cafes and bakeries in Madrid that offer them as their specialty. Enjoy the mantecados with cinnamon, almond, lemon or chocolate.
Finally, we suggest you to visit a place that is not the most common among tourists visiting Madrid, which is a shame. You should spend a day (or even a weekend) in the Royal Botanic Gardens. Its structured corridors will delight you with well-tended gardens, which will make you forget you are in a big, cosmopolitan city.
These are just some of the different alternatives available during your short stay in apartments in Madrid, a city that invites you to explore not only the traditional, but the new, the delicious, the exotic and the monumental. Indulge yourself and your family in visiting the city in relaxation and exploring different options offered by this city.
