Autumn has arrived in the capital of Sapin, the cold and the rain are here to stay, at least for a while. It is high time to put your winter clothes in storage, take out the coats from last year and fish for those raincoats and brollies.
It´s also the moment to start looking for alternative plans for your weekends or those days off. Madrid has many different opportunities for leisure.
There is a very interesting visit that you can embark on during one of those winter rainy days. This trip could start in the Market of San Miguel, a few metres away from Plaza Mayor in the centre of the city.
This singular building, built in 1916 is a good sample of iron construction. Now it is home to 33 market stalls selling high quality food products.
The Market of San Miguel is a place where you can buy real delicatessen products, almost luxury items. It is also a great place for enjoying fantastic tapas and different and tasty dishes that will make any mouth water.
When you leave this spectacular building you can go to the Plaza Mayor, in this square, a meeting place for many different characters of the city, you will be able to hide away from the rain and enjoy the wonderful views of a beautiful part of Madrid.
