Madrid was the last city we visited while on our Europe trip in 2009. We stayed there for 3 days and completely fell in love with it. The best part was that I got to practice my Spanish! Neither my husband nor I knew much about Spain until this visit (from my Spanish classes – I mostly knew about Latin American countries, but not so much about Spain). So, the first thing we did while in Madrid was – we went to see the Royal Palace which is where the Spanish Royal family ‘officially’ lives, but it is mostly used for ceremonies. The family actually resides in a more modest palace outside the city.
