"7 days of Madrid" - Day 2
We woke up to a brisk but sunny morning and decided to visit Mercado De San Migel for some breakafast & treats. What ever your heart desires, they have. It is a traditional market for the 21st century, with purveyors hawking everything from produce to fish, fresh pastas to pastries, cookbooks to cooking utensils to beers, wines and tapas.

We also did some shopping at Zara, Mango and my very favorite Desigual
then ended the night at Corral de la Moreria, best Tablao Flamenco in a world, located in the center of Madrid - next to the Royal Palace, in the main historic quarters of the city -, its decoration, the arabic corbels and streetlamps dating from the 18th and 19th C recreate a setting reminiscent of the original tablao flamenco, that takes you back in time. Corral de la Moreria has been in a Michelin Guide 5 years in a row and also has been selected in a book "1000 places to see before you die"
This establishment is frequently visited by well-known celebrities around the world visiting Madrid.
