I am from Madrid, love the city and want to share my special addresses. Every day a new idea, place or thing to do in Madrid. Everything has been thoroughly tested but it is only a personal opinion.

CULTURE MIXED WITH NATURE: TETSUYA ISHIDA AND MATT COLLISHAW

Now that the weather is so good, in this post I'm going to recommend two cultural plans that also combine with nature breaks in the center of Madrid such as the Retiro park and the Botanical Garden. A fantastic 2X1 for free time whether you want to go with family, friends or alone:

Royal Botanical Park- blooming flowers

- Villanueva Pavilion of the Royal Botanical Garden. "Mat Collishaw. Dialogues" which is the first exhibition organised by the Sorigué Foundation in Madrid. Open until May 24th.



From sculpture, photography and films the exhibition shows the artist's interest in nature and the history of art, it is really surprising for its variety of styles and hardness while beauty reflected in his work.
This lamp in movement was super impressive

- Reina Sofia Museum - Palacio de Velázquez in Retiro Park. "Tetsuya Ishida- Self-portrait of another". Open until September 8th.




This Japanese artist who died very young in 2005 shows a Japanese society where humans are mostly automatons and provokes disturbing scenes where alienation is a major theme, although his disturbing works are also overwhelming and thought-provoking.

MADRID CELEBRATES 2ND OF MAY


Our special Tribute to famous Goya Painting: May 2nd shootings that can be found in Prado Museum

Today is a special day in Madrid, we celebrate the uprisings of May 2 by the people of Madrid to rebel against the French occupation and expel the French army in 1808. 
In addition to not working, madrilians commemorate with various activities in the street, theaters, galleries that we highly recommend and that can be checked at: http://www.madrid.org/fiestasdel2demayo/2019/espacios.html




Taking into account the sunny day and that the city is free of cars, we have taken the opportunity to approach the Plaza del Dos de Mayo where the statue of Daoiz and Velarde is imposed, Madrid heroes of this day.
We were delighted to discover improvised concerts in the streets, open shops and a great desire to celebrate.
