Magical Madrid is a bustling, beautiful cosmopolitan hotspot, etched in history and full of colour and flavour. We asked local Spanish rider Eduardo Álvarez Aznar for his secret city guide to get inside knowledge on what to do, see and experience in the Spanish capital. Check out his answers here…
1/ Best Restaurant to eat at… Guito's restaurant no doubt. Not only because it's my friend's restaurant, they have one the best quality dishes in Madrid and it’s situated only 50m away from the riders' hotel.
Location: Calle de Blanca de Castilla, 5, 28023 Madrid http://restauranteguitos.es/
2/ Something to do… Take a walk all around the centre of Nadrid: Plaza Mayor, la latina, palacio de oriente. The real roots of the capital.
3/ Something to see… Visit EL PRADO museum, it is the best museum in Spain!
4/ Best place to relax and unwind? Walk around the Retiro park. You could discover different animals and a great variety of plants in this huge park, with more than 115 hectares in size.
5/ Favourite song to land into Madrid Airport to… “For what it's worth” by Buffalo Springfield
6/ My Secret Tip… I would recommend to take some time and go to " Mercado de San Miguel” - it’s the best place to taste all kind of Tapas.
