Swim team/Swim clubs in Madrid?

by swimmergirl1

I will be traveling to Spain later this month with my family. I am a senior in high school and am a competitive swimmer, so I thought it would be fun to find a swim team in Madrid that I could practice with a few days. This way I can meet new friends while also getting a good workout. Does anyone know how I can find local swim clubs in Madrid and Barcelona?
Thanks for you help!

Re: Swim team/Swim clubs in Madrid?

Google. Or your own swim club should have a list of overseas swim clubs or if not, then it is available through your own national swim body. However, from personal experience and as you will know, swim clubs tend to have their own training schedules and whether you will fit in is unknown. For just a few days, I would find a swimming pool and do your own training. Most pools have early morning sessions with roped off lanes.

In Barcelona I could recommend you to contact with CLUB NATACIÓ BARCELONA, http://www.cnb.es/ Unfortunately this web page is only in catalan, however you can find the adress, telephone number and you can send a message from it and contact them.
If you need some help, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Enjoy your time in Spain.

Travel Tips for Madrid

Introduction

by Lalique

This time Madrid behaved too officially indeed and decided to make the first introduction on Plaza Mayor, however I didn't expect it to be that formal.
But then, when it saw me in the middle of the square totally lost, deafened by the crowd of other guests, surprised and bewildered at the same time... it colored the facedes in pink with the help of the settling sun, switched on chansons played on accordion by some French looking Spaniard, turned on the lanterns in the open air restaurant and set my eyes on a fragile angel standing still on a box with her hands put together in a pray.... and I suddenly relaxed, calmed down and smiled to Madrid. All in all I liked the introduction...

Royal Palace ceilings

by Carmela71

This is only one of the examples of ceilings that you will find at the Royal Palace.

Some of the paintings of the ceilings deserve the visit, without including the incredible decoration, the tapestries, the walls covered in materials....

When to Go and What to Pack

by DanielF

Madrid's climate is known for its pronounced seasonal variations. With cold (if dry) winters and inclemently hot (and even drier) summers, spring and autumn are often recommended as the best months to visit the city. In those periods, though, the possibility of precipitation is higher, even if it still remains below the European average.

I personally love Madrileño summers, when the dry air occasionally turns the city into a furnace that even melts the tar on the streets and you hardly see a cloud up in the sky. At night, however, temperatures decline and become fairly pleasant for your nightlife adventures. Like most of the Spanish cities, Madrid partially closes down for holidays in August. Nonetheless, this traditional yearly exodus to the beaches or the sierra is no longer what it used to be and, although some restaurants and businesses do close down for most of the month, there are enough places and activities to keep you occupied without the hassle of the congested traffic and crowds that are common during the rest of the year.

Real Casa de la Moneda

by Redang

Fábrica Nacional de Moneda y Timbre (Royal Spanish Mint).

The Casa de la Moneda Museum is considered to be one of the most important museums of its kind in the world (according to the website, I really don't know). The Museum shows a journey through the History of money.

Free entry.

How to get there:
Calle Doctor Esquerdo, 36
28071 Madrid

- Metro: O'Donnell (line 6).
- Bus: 56 and Circular

Best sangria ever drunk!

by Rita_ about Espana cani

If you wanna start your nite in a cosy place and if you wanna taste a real sangria go to this bar in calle Huertas!
Nice people (not only foreigners), good music, simple atmosphere, excellent and cheap sangria and, if you go early, even tasty tapas...
Here you can breath the real spanish feeling of the "movida".
Be careful with the sangria though ... it's a tricky one and you only realize it when you have already got drunk! ;) none
