Espadrilles (Alpargatas)

It’s an eternal fashion made in Spain. They are hand made with thousands of different models: flat or with high heels. An authentic and traditional shoes. The oldest store in Madrid is Casa Hernanz, since 1845.

I bought mine last summer. They are perfect for hot days…

Malasaña, Madrid

#2 – Tapas

Everything in Malasaña invites you to stay and grab a beer. Impossible not to try their famous “tapas” sandwiches made with a selection ranging from Iberian ham to fillets. Most of the sandwiches are served on either a crunchy ‘pan de cristal’ or tortillas.

Everyday is a day of Fiesta!! And the summer season has just started.
