24 Photos That Will Inspire You to Visit Madrid in the Winter
Sometime in 2016, I completely fell in love with the capital of Spain – Madrid. After a less than stellar experience in Barcelona, Madrid felt amazing to me. Personally I think Madrid is kind of like the New York of Spain while Barcelona is more LA/Miami style. Madrid is classy, elegant and is the epitome of its country.
While Spain is known as a summer destination, it’s actually quite wonderful in the winter, when all the tourists have gone home! I spent three wonderful weeks this past February in the Malasaña district, a trendy neighborhood filled with small shops and hidden restaurants, and the neighboring area of Sol, the city center. This was my third visit to Madrid, so I was really focused on “slow travel” for relaxing, and taking the city in as a local would.
After wandering the streets every time I could, I gathered some of my favorite photos to share with you from gorgeous Madrid – certainly to inspire you to pay the Spanish capital a proper visit!
