Build up to the wedding – Madrid

Build up to the wedding – Madrid

We eventually got to Madrid on the Tuesday and had a couple of nights with Mum, Pat and Mike. I met up with a couple of friends from Madrid and spent most of the time having beer and tapas. What could be better.

We stayed in the Room Mates Alicia hotel on Plaza Santa Ana and I can’t recomend it highly enough. Great value for a good hotel which is in a great location. Paddy certainly enjoyed the bed on the terrace and I fell asleep on it one night too.

I finally got to see Madrid Cathederal. It’s ok but not great.

I went back to one of my favourite places in Madrid ‘La Venencia’ on Calle Echegaray. They only serve Sherry and a few olives. This is timeouts review and this is trip advisors review.

Plus I found a new cool bar courtesy of Paddy and his XDC mate from Madrid. Las Cuevas de Sesamo which is on the parallel street Calle Principe. Sangria all round.

We also ran around a few museums and I can now say with some certainty that Matisse produced a lot of crap.
