This is a short movie about Madrid, a traditional and at the same time modern city, the capital of Spain. There is no special idea behind this film; it does not pretend to provide any guidance or tips for tourists or show even its most well-known attractions. We like to explore places here we go on feet walking streets, visiting places that often are missing from most tourist books, talking to people and looking around in an attempt to do our best in understanding the essence of the place.

This web page and photo gallery was inspired by Rick Steves' Snapshot Madrid & Toledo book, the 1173-page guide which can be especially useful for the first-time visitors covering all essential for tourist information about Madrid. What attracted my attention is the description of a self-guided "welcome to Madrid" tour describing a short but packed with many interesting things itinerary with which first-timers can start their exploration of Madrid. Our photo gallery follows very closely suggested itinerary and compliments Rick's verbal description with images related to places along your way.

Hotel Preciados, (calle de Preciados, 37, Centro, 28013 Madrid, Spain) occupies a refurbished 19th century building.
