directions by metro from Baragas airport to Plaza Espanya

by cherrychops

We are staying at a hotel (Tryp Menfis) that appears from a map to be within walking distance of Plaza Espanya metro station. Please advise the best route to get to the hotel from the airport.

I have done that trip - very easy with one change. You can use to track your itinerary, what's most important, however, is to be *extremely* careful with pickpockets when you change cars. I have been there several times and someone has tried to go thru my backpack when someone from the outside screamed and said "le estan robando" - (they're robbing you).

Odd part is that the train took off, w/the pick pocket on board and I could not figure out who of the people near me it was. Good part is that I carry all my valuables under my clothing and other than opening both backpack zippers they got nothing.

Don't let this derail you - I am a woman traveling alone and *always* take the metro. The Tryp Memfis, if you get out from the correct side of the station, is less than half a block away - extremely convenient.

Additionally, there's a large Metro office upstairs in the airport, right before you go down to the platform where the cars are. They will give you a map and confirm the way to go, so no worries even if you lose your notes there's easy help in the metro part of the airport.

Ah, what a long post for such a simple answer ...

thank you. I love your long answer. I will be aware of pickpockets thank you. Thanks also for the link. I will try to make sense of it.

I just looked at the link. It is amazing. I have printed out the directions. Can you tell me how to find the correct side to exit at Plaza Espanya please.

If I recall, it just says "Gran Via" exit. Should not be difficult at all - you will be walking upstairs.

Travel Tips for Madrid

Must visit Madrid.
When I...

by naturechica

Must visit Madrid.
When I was there in 1992, Madrid had more bars per capita than any other city in Europe.(dont know how accurate that is......but I tend to believe it)
Madrid has much to offer!
Check out the Pardo(museo de arte), take in a Flamenco performance, visit the plaza de toros and watch a bull fight(if you can stomach it), dine al fresco in one of the many restaurants/cafes. Eat tapas until the wee hours of the night and be sure to get a pitcher or two of the sangria!

Follow the Leader!

When you try a new activity watch for as long as you can before you join in. Be a quick study and pick up on what you should and should not do. In Madrid, you should be prepared to check your bags at the museums. In wine bars, tables are sometime reserved for those eating. At restaurants some areas are reserved for "tapas" and other for "La Cena" (a full meal). Try to find out before you go or indicate what you whant we you arrive. I good place with both and a good dose of atmosphere is Las Cuevas de Luis Candelas, in Old Madrid off Plaza Mayor. The "oldest bar in Madrid" is a great bar and full service restaurant. See photot below. It is open all nights and closes between 12:30 and 1am, and accepts AMEX.

Valle de Los Caidos

by solopes

About one hour north of Madrid a high cross in the mountains of Guadarrama signs the location of this fascist monument to the death of civil war, in a place called Valle de los Caidos. Why not? We must keep good and bad memories.

Go and have a look. And don't forget, ten kilometers distant Escorial is another kind of religious monument.

My favorite souvenirs shop

by Quartzy about Sol Souvenirs

My mother and I wandered all around Madrid and saw postcards were 0,30 euros pretty much everywhere - except at Sol Souvenirs, where they were 0,15 euros each. So for cheap postcards, this is the place!

I am the dancing queen!!!

by Gaby_G about Palacio Gaviria

Back in XVIII century It use to be a little palace ... Now it is a nightclub... You can dance salsa, pop or electronic in the same night going from a room to another... It gets really loaded especially the latin room where you'll hear the latest latin hits... If you get to make friends with the DJ, maybe youll get some free passes for the next time ;)
If you dont, try to find some discount passes outside the club, there are often people who give them....
Wednesday are foreigners nights :) get your sticker and know some other "aliens"
