Had a surprisingly serene day sightseeing in Madrid mainly due to the football taking place at the same time. I have never seen the streets so empty! We started our day at Cafe Central, just of Plaza Santa Ana, where we enjoyed a delicious menu del dia. Then we hit up Sol, Gran Via, Plaza Mayor, Palacio Real, Plaza Espana – checking off all the Madrid boxes. The Palacio Real seems so peaceful – maybe one day I will actually get around to going inside. 8 euros just seems way too much! Finished the day with some churros which was a big mistake – I have never felt so empachada in my life! Ewww- knew there was a reason I didnt eat them!
