This weekend we took a trip to Madrid to see the sites and try some great food. We left on Thursday morning from the Córdoba bus station and it took us five hours to get to Madrid. Even though the trip was long, it was definitely worth it! The first night we were there we checked in to our hostel, and then went immediately to the most famous churros place in the city. It is a chocolatería called San Gines that has been visited by many famous people, even including supermodels like Naomi Campbell!
It is always packed with people and the lines can be extremely long but the churros are delicious (and cheap!) and I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Madrid. We spent the rest of the weekend walking around the city and visiting popular tourist sites like Puerta Sol and the Plaza Mayor. My favorite day was Saturday when we went to a neighborhood in Madrid that is famous for its cute antiques, retro clothing stores as well as adorable bookstores and cafes. We shopped around for a while until finally settling down to drink coffee and eat desserts at one of the many cafes. All in all, Madrid is definitely one of the best cities in Spain, but by the end of the weekend we were ready to head back to Córdoba, home sweet home! ☺
