Sundays are definitely a special day. From being the last day of the week to being a transit between the weekend and the beginning of the next week, it all depends on how you want to enjoy this unique day of the week. Do you want to spend the whole day laying on the coach? Maybe… However we rather get the most of this last day of the week and go out for some underground shopping or to attend the best electronic festival Brunch -In Madrid.
Actually, there is a lot to do on a Sunday in Madrid, here you have some tips to leave your coach behind and enjoy an intense Sunday in the Spanish capital.
Flea market morning
The flea market, also known as “rastro”, is one of the most crowded events of Madrid’s Sundays. That’s why you shouldn’t miss the chance of wandering around the Latina neighborhood looking for bargains or collector’s items, or for the simple pleasure of browsing among the many curiosities that pill up between stalls.
After a pleasant morning walking around the Rastro,there is nothing like trying one of the typical delicacies of the city, the famous squid sandwich that you cantry in any tavernor bar surrounding the area: a curious combination that leaves no one indifferent. If you aren’t keen on sandwiches or you want something heavier, go to Casa Lucio right next to the flea market and try their famous dish of fried eggs with spicy sausage.
Once we have recovered energies withthis powerful and typical food, nothing like going to the bohemian Cebada market, where you will probably come across a concert or some other event.
Good vibes evening
Near south of theRetiro Parkwe find the Enrique Tierno Galvan Park, which hosts one of the coolest open air events in Spainduring the Sundays of the summer season;Brunch –In The Park. An event where families and friends come together to enjoy the best atmosphere and the best electronic music.
Internationally renownedDJs like Tiga or Simian Mobile Disco put music to the evening of the last day of the week from 13.00 h. until 22.00 h. The location couldn’t be better, this park has an amphitheater overlooking the planetarium or the old Imax cinema, the first one built in Spain.
An unforgettable sunset
After letting our adrenaline out at Brunch- In the Park, we still have energy and time to bid farewell to the city properly: from the hill that hosts the Temple of Debod.
A hill that allows us to admire one of the best sunsets in the city (actually it’s probably the best), with the Manzanares river at our feet and Casa de Campo as a background.
Start to live Sunday this way and you’ll see how it quickly becomes your favorite day of the week.
