Spains feelings have always been passionate. This is especially true in the midsummer Madrid, where the Mayo Plaza is hot in the sun, and for the sake of food bears holding raspberries we are not afraid to look for it until we see the statue. "Bears holding raspberries" is not to eat... then learn to take a pose together. There are many beautiful buildings in Madrid: the palace, the gates of Alcala, the Retiro Park, etc. Find a holiday and explore for yourself. Right~
Madrid is unbelievable, but very interesting.
Many people say that Madrid is a very boring city and there is not much to watch. However, I feel that it is full of life, in addition to a serious leisure life, there are occasional small surprises to add fun to the whole city.
In addition, the Spaniard's overall feeling is also very good, although most of them do not speak English, and occasionally encounter one or two will be very poor, but it is really a more enthusiastic nation in Europe. Just like traveling in Latin America, even if the farce is constant, the ending is always complete, So is in the same mood as the long-lost blue sky, and the pleasure is clear [heart]

I was very impressed with Madrid because of the small street of Stone Road in JOLIN's Madrid Unbelievable MV. The cute foreign little is too sunny. But later I learned that the MV framing was originally in Budapest... Well, anyway really came to Madrid. I didnt think its unbelievable or Madrids indifference. Its just as a countrys capital. The people who traveled like many big cities have their own Careful and fast-paced life without the free and easy enthusiasm of the southern cities.
The prestigious Madrid Plaza Mayor.
Deliberately added to Madrid because Mayor is actually a transliteration of MAYOR...that is, big, the main meaning.
So there are a lot of places in Spain that have to be added to the Plaza Mayor. The statue in front of
is the Philip III. The Plaza Mayor was also ordered by him.
Although it is called "The Grand Place", it is not much worse than our Tiananmen Square
but the exquisiteness and ornamental value are still very high. We walk around the square to enjoy the warmth of the afternoon. sunlight.
