Madrid Travel Guide

A few months ago, we were in Spain, photographing a stunning wedding (photos coming soon) so we decided to stop off in Madrid and Seville for a little sight-seeing of our own.  Words really can’t express how fantastic that week  was.  We never ate so well, felt so well rested (loving the siestas), and so in awe of our surroundings.  We’re already planning our next getaway to this beautiful pocket of the world.  If a Spain wedding is in the cards for you, call us. We fold up really nicely into oversized suitcases.  Take a look below for some of our favourite tips in this Madrid travel guide.

A few days later, we moved south to Seville.  A (relatively) short train ride later, we were in the midst of the heat of Seville.  We thought the food in Madrid was almost too delicious to bear, but once we got to Seville, the pounds started packing on.  PRO TIP: don’t go to Spain the week before your wedding when you have a gown to fit into!  We quickly found ourselves adapting to a new lifestyle – slow morning coffees, afternoon naps, early evening strolls and delicious late night dinners.  It’s going to be hard to adjust to life back in Canada…

Seville:  WHERE TO STAY: Puerta Catedral Apartments  WHERE TO EAT: Albarama Restaurante Tapas | Al Aljibe | Bar La Corona WHAT TO SEE: Plaza De Espana | Alcazar | Catedral De Sevilla
