Madrid - Spain

We are on vacation in Europe. We flew to Madrid and stayed there for two days to look at everything. We saw art, cathedrals, old houses and had a lot of Tapas.

The Spanish Civil Guard has a very odd hat, it's called Tricornio.

Narrow streets in Madrid filled with Tapas restaurants. Their street signs are very nice.
