‘’Madrid is a typical city, you either love it or hate it!’’, exclaims 28 year old student, Alicia Villegas from Spain. A debatable assertion, considering there’s plenty to love, and so little to hate.

Let’s see…

 There’s the Plaza del Mayor steeped in history and rich architecture, and the Thyssen-Bornmisza Museum which will be running some impressive Russian exhibitions until January 2012.

The Madrid Arena is currently playing host to noted Canadian dance troupe Cirque du Soleil.

  Jazz club, Las Cuevas Sesamo in the heart of Madrid remains a favourite amongst locals and tourists.

And of course, the city has it sorted when it comes to food, local delicacy; Bacadillo de Calamares (fried fish) is a good place to start.

Hate it yet?
