I didn't have a clue what I should expect and what Madrid would be like, as soon as I understood I was going to Madrid. Believe it or not, I could feel the difference when I touched down in Madrid. I think that Madrid allows you to get to the center of Spanish ethnic essence because individuals from all around Spain tend to assemble there compared to Barcelona, which brings tourists from around the globe, although both of them are Spain's largest cities.
Las Rozas Village is smaller compared to the shops they've there definitely compete although La Roca in Barcelona. Las Rozas Village has the key brands I wanted like Missoni, Gucci, Loewe, Burberry, Ralph Lauren, Bulgari and a lot more. For me personally, they had more selection of what I like even although the shops were smaller. The layout of the hamlet was like La Roca undoubtedly didn't feel like an outlet and very huge. Perhaps it was the heatwave, but the shopping village was crowded that day and I have a tendency to shop more in rested, areas that are less active. I always favor shopping on weekdays also. A great sign of any destination is Las Rozas was full of locals compared to tourists in Barcelona and that it's popular with the locals. he patio would be to die for! It's a great area to hang out even if you're not shopping I was searching for a pair of sunglasses that were new and I found lots of great deals. I ended up getting a pair of Dior's for about 200 euros. I happy we made it to the notorious Chocolateria San Gines in Central Madrid. This cafe is among the oldest, ran since 1894 and it's super famous for their chocolate con churros. As they're open 24/7, super cool right! locals come here for supper How I wish we had a chocolate supper place in KL too. I can tell they're a must see area in the photowall they've inside featuring their most famous visitors of all time. I recall we were craving some ice cream that is good to beat heat. We made a few stops only to find great ice cream and we actually found one near Centro de Turismo Plaza Mayor. After google ing it, it's apparently one of many finest handmade ice creams you can get in Madrid. The Thyssen is one of the most incredible private collections of primarily European artwork in the whole world. Featuring collections, you private 1,600 can really learn so much about how art and over evolved trend the years. Regrettably we had a half and only an hour to spend there, but we had lots of interesting learning about the paintings. Really intriguing narratives for every painting and each. I loved the reflective TV in the room and the white marble furnished bathroom. This resort is situated in Madrid's most fashionable Salamanca, street, where you are able to find all the high end brands. I literally spent the last hour in the Gucci flagship nearby ( 2 minutes walk ) before heading to the airport.
