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!

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!

Great building with great views, couldn't be better located!
Great building with great views, couldn't be better located!
Recommending a hotel and restaurant in Madrid is not always easy, as they are many options and a wide range of prices. However I have no doubt that if you want to feel the madrilian vibe in luxury, be well located ,  best views of town and a great restaurant inside by two Michelin Stars Ramón Freixa  named Atico, The Principal is one of the best options.

Caray! a Gastronomic Surprise!

Our suggestion for this week, is a special one: Caray. First of all, because some of the owners are dear friends, Barbara Perez Manzabeitia and Luis Sartorius. This lovely couple along with a spanish sports champion, Alberto Piñón and the wonderful team of one of the best tapas places of Madrid, La Monteria, have recently opened this restaurant. Such a combination was certain to be a success! The name chosen is a spanish expression to describe surprise.

El Huerto de Lucas, a new ecogastrocultural market!

el huerto de lucas interior
I am so happy with this new eco trend going on in Madrid! Last Sunday I went to El Huerto de Lucas, in San Lucas 13, a covered market with a nice restaurant in the middle that is worth a visit, especially as walking down the Street you don’t seem to realize that there is a huge space of 450 square meters inside that can be considered as an eco-paradise! Actually their motto is ‘the first medicine is food’!

Brunch at Only You Hotel & Lounge Madrid

I enjoy Sundays very much and I usually love to go for an aperitivo or brunch. Last Sunday, my choice was brunch in one of the coolest hotels to recently open in Madrid! "Only You Hotel & Lounge Madrid". I had already been there for after-work drinks and dinner, but was curious about their brunch. And yes! My curiosity has been positively satisfied!

Velazquez 150, the place to be: Upstairs - The Hall, Dowstairs - ATA Club

My Little Madrid The Hall lobby
The Lobby of The Hall

The new pole of trendy places in Madrid is undoubtedly; Velazquez 150. There are two choices: upstairs The Hall, downstairs ATA Club. They used to be NODO and La Nicolasa, but both were closed down and like the phoenix bird came back to life full of energy and verve!
