Our tour guide had told us that the "Meson"s on Calle Cava de San Miguel (just outside Plaza Mayor) were worth going to for dinner and that Don Carnal was one he'd recommend. It's more spacious inside than you might expect (it was a cold...More

In Madrid it's not easy to find a good place to eat local dishes...so during our walks around the city center we found this nice place near to Mercado de San Miguel. Their paella menu was great with fish salad and divine croquettes. Paella and...More

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
