Burrata at Mercado San Miguel

Even though some of the roads in Madrid are very busy, the streets have a relaxed ambience with a mix of wide avenues filled with designer shops and mazes of narrow lanes and passageways. Madrid is the perfect choice for a city break to enjoy stunning architecture, superb food and high end shopping.
