Madrid CityTravelReview

It would be fair to say that the people of Madrid are friendly and most will welcome outsiders with open arms. It is not uncommon for a local to stop on the street to help a tourist find a location or for a waiter to recommend a great bar or nightclub for you to try after your meal. Of course, like with any large capital city, you should still be wary of yourself and your belongings; Madrid is fast approaching number one in Europe for pickpocketing. In general, though, if you try to understand them and maybe charm them with your limited Spanish, a madrileño could become a very good friend. Their siesta/fiesta attitude might surprise you when you discover much of this great city’s history that is enveloped in fighting and political unrest.
