It is here the locals are seen away from the hordes of tourist to the centro or center of Madrid. This is my area when visiting now ,after living off Quintana at the other end. Here you have the Gateway to...

    Madrid Off The Beaten Path

    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.

    I came across this pretty formal garden whilst wandering the southern part of Madrid de los Austrias, in La Latina. It is one of the few remaining examples of a classic 18th century formal garden for a mansions, in this case the 'palace' of Anglona. The house was originally built, around 1530, for one Francisco de Varjas although it was...

  • Aranjuez

    Yes, Aranjuez is a music! As a matter of fact one of the prettiest ever made, but it is also a small and quiet town 50 km from Madrid or Toledo, marking the entrance to La Mancha. A royal palace (that I had no time to visit) and its gardens are a reference to romance, and to a fabulous music that... you know!
