Travel Diaries | Madrid Part 2

Thursday, September 10, 2015

It’s finally here, part 2 of my trip to Madrid! Today I am sharing with you  some of the places I visited and think it’s worth going if you’re planning a trip to this city. So lets get started! 

- Madrid Atocha Railway Station -

Madrid Atocha is the largest railway station in Madrid. Even though we didn’t take any of the trains, the station itself was worth visiting. The building itself is impressive right from the outside, but what makes it even more special is their indoor garden pound where over 300 turtles calls it home. 

- Buen Retiro Park -

If you’re looking for the perfect afternoon stroll then Retiro Park is perfect for just that. Getting there is very convenient with three metro station near by Retiro, Ibiza and Atocha station. 
This well maintained park with many beautiful architecture to explore, is a great place to escape to and just relax in nature. 

- Palacio de Cristal -

Located inside of Retiro Park you will find this beautiful glass greenhouse. It is surely one of the most romantic spaces I have ever visited. I can just imagine this building being transformed into the most romantic wedding ceremony or the most fabulous afternoon tea party you can imagined.
This little greenhouse holds many free art exhibitions throughout the year, however sometimes left empty. Either way, I just fell in love with how beautiful this part of the park was. 

- Royal Palace of Madrid -

Another must go places to visit in Madrid is the Royal Palace of course! Although I didn’t get the chance to go right inside, the outside was just as beautiful. However be warned if you want to go inside and avoid long queues make sure you arrive early to get your tickets.

- Catedral de la Almudena -

My beautiful mama. 
Another amazing architecture building to visit is the Almudena Cathedral, located right next to the Royal Palace. I don’t know much about Cathedral only having visited a handful of them in my lifetime, however you can certainly appreciate the beauty of the interior as soon as you step inside. 

 - Palacio de Cibeles -

If you’re looking for somewhere to escape the touristy areas of Madrid and just want to relax for a while then CentroCentro is a great place to explore. Right up to the top level of the building you can head up further to the tower to get a panoramic view of the city for only €2. With beautiful interior, many great art exhibitions and comfy seating areas inside, I can happily spend a good few hours wondering and exploring this place.

 It has been a pleasure exploring and experience everything this beautiful City has to offer.
Until next time Madrid
