I love Madrid in August
For those of you who are from abroad, even if Madrid has the reputation of being hot, it is not an unbearable heat and it is fought very well.
I have had some very cool days in Madrid accompanying a person for a few days, his first time in Madrid and it seems a wonderful city to visit. It has a number of places with water and places so comfortable that it does not surprise me, that many students who come, stay and do not return to their cities. Madrid catches you.
The council as a city, to spend 5 to 7 great days. And if you want or want someone to accompany you through Madrid, I do it happy. Although the truth, I have little time to be in Madrid. As I said in another comment, I leave the house in Leganés and I am going to travel outside of Spain. And I have thinking about not coming back in a few years.
You can see my route in this link.
I have attached a session done abroad, very close to what has been my home for 5 years, in Leganés Barrio de Solagua.
