About the From Royalty to Renewal

 

Madrid is both. It has world-class museums and opulent palaces containing fabulous works of art from the period when it was the capital of a far-flung empire. And it also has a vibrant contemporary art scene fostered by a supportive municipality and enriched by a diverse population.

To truly experience Madrid it is worth getting to know both these aspect, and preferably through the taste buds and the stomach; whether its traditional dishes that the younger generation is unwilling to forgo in favor of fast food or variations of one kind and another of dishes from all over the world that arrived in Madrid with the immigrant communities who have made the city their home – the city has it all. Spending time in the restaurants that are to found on almost every corner is as much a social experience as a culinary one; and a favourite pastime of Madrileños, who love to sit at tables and enjoy the tempo of the city and the people around them.

The tour takes you from the classical royal area of the city to the less touristy La Latina neighbourhood, historically the home of Muslims and Jews before the expulsion of 1492. It is now a neighbourhood populated by young bohemians, with a colourful mix of ageing hippies, clubbers, Chinese, and a smattering of tourists.
