Hello from India !
My brother had to travel to Madrid at very short notice. We had no time to research how to spend his 3 leisure days.
In fact he is in Madrid NOW and will have time from 11-14th Oct.
I understand Madrid is vibrant and the important things to see for a non mumeum lover would be :
Plaza Mayor, El Rastro. Where can he see some flamenco dance and how would you suggest see get a feel of the city in such a short time?
A friend of mine suggested he do a day trip to Colmenar Viejo-Miraflores and Manzanares. Would you recomend this?
I would like to know the following:
1) see and do things in Madrid
2) if Colmenar Viejo-Miraflores-Manzaranes is advised?
3) what to expect in no.2) and how to travel there?
My brother loves nature and leisure cycling.
May I request your reply to be copied/pasted also to my email id: email@example.com? please?
