From Barajas Airpot to Madrid downtown

by ChioQuiroz

Does anyone know how long it takes to go to Madrid DT from the airport by public transportation?

Re: From Barajas Airpot to Madrid downtown

by leics

You can find information about airport transport here (English link at the top of the page):

http://www.aena.es

Search for 'Madrid' under airports (on the left).

Then click 'practical information' for info about bus and Metro timetables. The airport is only 12km from the city centre, so it won't take long whichever mode of transport you use.

Ask for 'city centre' rather than 'downtown', which is a word not often used in Europe.

Re: From Barajas Airpot to Madrid downtown

The Metro into NUEVOS MINISTERIOS (the end of the airport link LINE 8 - THE PINK ONE !) cost €2 and takes about 30 minutes. If you open Google Maps and put in search box:

Nuevos Ministerios Madrid

You should get a map showing the station. Now if you know your final destination (hopefully!!) you can find walking directions or how long it may take by taxi form this place. Or if you click on the Metro symbol, it will highlight the routes of the Metros that link with Nuevos Ministerios.
Neat.
Lines 6 , 8 and 10 !
Google call it 'subway services from this station' and not Metro.

I quite like the word 'subway' because it indicates that the train is underground. But I guess that Metro is a bit more 'European'. Nuevos Ministerios is not really downtown but you are almost there.

If you are transiting to get to the Atocha Railway station. Then please look at my tip ! :-)

Travel Tips for Madrid

El Tiempo en Madrid (The Weather in Madrid)

by Redang

What's the weather look like (or will be)?

- In Spanish
- In Inglish

Other webs:
- www.madridman.com/weather.html (English)
- www.tutiempo.net/weather/index.php (Spanish)
- www.worldweather.org/083/c00195.htm (English)
- www.accuweather.com/world-index-forecast.asp?partner=accuweather&locCode=EUR|ES|SP013|Madrid|&u=1
- www.imn.es (Spanish and English) (for the weather in Spain)

How to transform from Fahrenheit to Celsius? Deduct 32, divide by 9 and multiply by 5.

Example: 85 Fahrenheit, minus 32 = 53, divided by 9 = 5,89 by 5 = 29,4 Celsius.

bullfighting

by cachaseiro

bullfighting is a national passion in spain.
it's hated worldwide and i find it a bit of an odd hobby myself, but it's very popular in spain and the fights are almost always sold out.

i went to a bullfight myself in spain and i must say it was an interesting if a bit add spectacle.
i grew up on the countryside myself and i'm used to seeing animals being butcherd, so it wasn't that bad for me to watch, but i would not recommend that you bring your children to a bullfight.

the bullfighting arena in madrid is a very impressive arena and worth seeing even if you have no intentions of going to watch a bullfight.

Real Jardin Botánico (I)

by Belsaita

The Botanical Gardens in Madrid (Real Jardin Botánico) are not as huge and impressive as other European gardens of this type, but they are one of my favourite places in Madrid. Located between Museo del Prado and Atocha Station, you can get here easily by Metro (Atocha). Look for the entrance at the small square located close to El Prado. It is the perfect place to chill out, is not so crowded as Retiro or other public parks (probably due to the entrance fee). For instance, when I was living in Madrid, I loved to go there on sunny Sundays mornings to read the newspapers.

The place has a nice old-fashioned atmosphere, no wonder, as its foundation was ordered by King Fernando VI in 1755 and later, during the reign of Carlos III, the Garden was installed in its present location. The architects Francesco Sabatini and Juan de Villanueva took part in the design of the Garden’s new frame. It was declared Artistic Garden in 1942.

Some of the most important buildings in the Garden are the Villanueva Pavilion (there are temporary exhibitions), the Graells Greenhouse and the Exhibition Greenhouse, which was inaugurated in 1993. Recently it was opened to public a impressive collection of Bonsais that belonged to Felipe Gonzalez, former president of Spain. Please see my following tips for details.

The Gardens do opens to public every day of the year except for Christmas Day and New Year's Day, from 10 a.m. until the sunset (6 p.m. in winter, 9 p.m. in summer).

Price of the tickets
- Ordinary ticket: 2€
- Student card: 1€
- Groups of more than ten people: 0,50 €.

Free entrance for seniors (+ 65), children (- 10) and groups of students.

Buying Jewelry/Handbags etc off the street

by cimc

You can get some really original jewelry and other accessories almost anywhere in Madrid. Some of the stuff is generic but there are some eterprising people who make their own stuff and sell it on the footpaths. There is most definatley room for barginin particuarily if you are buying more than one item-so don't be afraid to ask! My friend once bought a necklace in Retiro for E20 and I got the same one for E15 just by asking for a deal!!

A glimpse of Mexico in Malasaña

by agarcia about La Catrina

This Mexican bar has become lately in one of my favorite in Malasaña neighborhood (the trendiest quarter in Madrid). It always amazes the number and diversity of people that can join together in this small, charming and always packed bar. The selection of Mexican beers is excellent, as well as the music (Latin rhythms), but the attribute that gives this place its unique identity is the colorful decoration; and incredible tribute to the Mexican Santeria (candles, Virgins, altars)...

Summarizing: A bar with strong personality. Exactly my type of bar. ;-) Completely open. Just dress as you are.
