In my estimation, capital cities always has a boring part. Even it took time to love Paris. And Madrid was one of the cities I always put back. But I see that for the people enjoy museums and big parks like me, this city deserves upper places on your list. At least as Hemigway says "Madrid is the most spanish of all cities". Evolving out of this sentence I can say that sometimes writers are better city guides than official ones. So, when I arrived there I left aside all my biasses and I focused on just one question in my mind; if this city is "full of illusions" like the protagonist Paco says in the short story of Hemnigway´s "The Capital of the World". So ? I don't want to do wrong to Madrid as Paco did, but on the other hand I know that every city has its own illusion. The most important is how it made a mark on you.
