A certain lifestyle is what this city stands for, long lunches and late dinners with the most delicious food. A beautiful city park and most parts of the city are within easy reach with a walk along the baroque boulevards. Madrid has a very special vibe, and late September is the perfect time for a weekend visit. IRMA opens her address book.
WHERE TO GO
Start your day with an artisan sourdough bread or a traditional morning roll in an aesthetic that could have come out of an Almodovar film. Madreamiga by La Miguiña is a project that marks a before and after in the concept of artisan bakery in Spain.
If you’re in town, be sure to buy a hat from Ana LAMATA. Ana’s handmade hats are the icing on the cake and a Spanish it-piece that you can only find here. We’ll visit her in her atelier on Monday and keep you posted.
With nearly 1,500 paintings, photographs and sculptures, the Four Seasons Hotel Madrid is an impressive place for art. The works of emerging Spanish artists give the hotel a modern spirit. Don’t miss the spectacular roof terrace overlooking the heart of Madrid.
This simple but charming deli is also located in Salesas. Far from the tourist crowds, this neighbourhood is just as charming with its colourful facades and many small street cafés.
