No te pierdas en el Kilómetro Cero

Kilómetro_cero,_Madrid“Kilómetro Cero, breathes in the city centre the soul that is lost when it escapes”. These are the words of singer/songwriter Ismael Serrano, not exempt of melancholy, dedicated to this central point in Spain, called the “Kilometer Zero” because it is the starting point of all of Spain’s roads. Located in front of the Casa de Correos in the Puerta del Sol, a plaque on the floor has reminded locals and tourists of its central-city status since 1950.

Starting from this emblematic point, the visitor comes across a wide range of bars and restaurants, of which today we’ll try and set apart the best from the rest. The first thing to do is have a walk around the two liveliest streets in the area: Calle Espoz y Mina and Calle Victoria (where Hotel Victoria 4 is located). In the latter is where we can find Xabreiro, a restaurant that is not famous among the masses but it is definitely one of the most authentic ones in the area. The owner, known as Murphy to his friends, prepares impeccable paellas that you can finish off with a homemade herbal liqueur.

Un día en la Casa de Campo

By | 23 December, 2011 | 0 comments


Casa de Campo is a very romantic name for one of the biggest urban parks in Madrid. Situated on the western border of the city, Casa de Campo or Country House is home to the Madrid Zoo as well as the amusement park or Parque de Atracciones.

For both these attractions you will have to spend a whole day to fully enjoy them. Although on the outskirts of the town, Casa de Campo is easy to reach from the town centre by tube, stopping at  Casa de Campo or Lago.

The zoo is one of the biggest in Europe and even has an aquarium where you and your whole family will be able to enjoy seeing dolphins and other aquatic animals performing.

If you prefer to spend a day out in the amusement park, you will have access to a number of different rides and experiences for the whole family. It is divided in themed areas and there is something for everybody, even the tiny, weeny ones. There are also numerous areas where you can have a bite or something to drink, while you wait for your next exciting experience.

Going back to Hotel Victoria will be very easy as both sites are connected by underground to the centre of Madrid.
