Three Perfect Days: Madrid

Author Chris Wright

Picture 1 of 13

Madrileños have a saying: De Madrid al cielo—From Madrid to heaven. What they mean is, here on Earth, this city is as good as it gets. That might sound like a bit of a stretch. Madrid doesn’t lead the world in any single aspect—architecture, the arts, nightlife, food, fashion, music, the friendliness of its people or the purity of its air—but bundle all these things together and there are few places to rival it. Its appeal creeps up on you, and once you’re bitten, that’s it. “I was born here and you landed here,” one local told me, “but you belong to this city as much as I do.” I really do hope that’s true.

    I can hardly believe that after seeing a city like ~Barcelona~; there is another city and even nearer to heaven than the first one.
    But I am open and willing to inspect to sent the report.
    How about the cost in that near-to-heaven-city?
    (And what if I do not want to leave?)
    ~But I feel must be wonderful~
