Open-air concerts in Olivar de Castillejo

Previous moment before the concert

Madrid is full of wonderful secrets, today it is the turn of an oasis of nature and music in the middle of the city. I am talking about the Olivar de Castillejo, a magical place near the busy Alberto Alcocer Street. In this olive grove, it seems that Napoleon himself slept with his troops during the War of Independence.

Cute terrace to grab a drink before concert

It is now a Foundation created by the descendants of the original owner, José de Castillejo who was a naturalist and intellectual. And thanks to him, we can enjoy his programme of open-air concerts in the summer. It is a luxury to be able to appear in the middle of nature to enjoy a concert of classical music and a good aperitif thanks to the small terrace installed near the stage. So between olive trees, a few rabbits and for only 10 euros (important only in cash), you forget that outside it is terribly hot and that you are in the city!

The ambiance


You can check the programme here, the best thing is to arrive about 30 minutes before the concert with your mask on because the capacity is reduced to 100 people.

Enjoy and if you like it, please don't stop sharing it with us!

OLIVAR DE CASTILLEJO
C/ MENENDEZ PIDAL 3



ESPAÑOL

Madrid está lleno de secretos maravillosos, hoy le toca el turno a un oasis de naturaleza y música en pleno asfalto de la ciudad. Hablo del Olivar de Castillejo, un lugar mágico cerca de la concurrida calle Alberto Alcocer. En este olivar, al parecer durmió el mismisimo Napoleón con sus tropas durante la guerra de la Independencia.

Actualmente constituye una Fundación creada por los descendientes del propietario original, José de Castillejo que era naturalista e intelectual. Y gracias a él, podemos disfrutar en verano de su programa de conciertos al aire libre. Es un lujo poder aparecer en plena naturaleza para disfrutar de un concierto de música clásica y un buen aperitivo gracias a la pequeña terraza instalada cerca del escenario. Así que entre olivos, algún que otro conejo y por solo 10 € (importante solo en efectivo), ¡se te olvida que fuera hace un calor espantoso y que estás en la ciudad!





Puedes consultar aquí el programa, lo mejor es llegar unos 30 minutos antes del concierto con tu mascarilla porque el aforo es reducido a 100 personas.

Disfruta y si te gusta, por favor no dejes de compartirlo con nosotros!

MO de Movimiento

An old theatre converted into a sustainable restaurant or an immense space of majestic heights where everything is beautiful and credible. These are the two definitions that come to my mind of the new fashionable restaurant in Madrid, Mo de Movimiento and the place where I plan to spend good times, surrounded by beauty, peace and good products.

Delivery during Pandemic I: Chifa

Chifa's outside
Little by little we are returning to "the new normality" and for some time now, we have access to some great restaurants through a delivery previously unimaginable.
One of the good things that this horrible crisis has brought is that digitalization has been radical and many restaurants have had to move out of their comfort zone creating new on-line services.  
We will start to write about our favourites delivery restaurants in Madrid, hoping that our recommendatios will be of interest to you. 
Our first great delivery service experience has been the Peruvian Chinese restaurant Chifa.  Their new delivery is called A gogó.
