Mark and Peter Besas

Hidden Madrid is an offbeat guide to the capital for those with a little free time on their hands and an interest in discovering Madrid's oddities. Where in town can you buy homemade pastries from cloistered nuns? How did King Felipe II plan to turn Madrid into a seaport? What deep, dark secret did Dr. Velasco hide in what is now the Anthropological Museum? What did a sudden sandy gust of wind and a king have to do with the coining of the word tapa? Where in Madrid would you find a statue dedicated to the Fallen Ángel (Lucifer)? What happened when a run-away fighting bull rampaged through the Gran Vía? Why are people from Madrid called gatos (cats)? What tips should you follow when attending your first bullfight? Where can you still find vestiges of the Franco era dictatorship? You'll find the answers to these and many other questions in Hidden Madrid all presented in a readable and entertaining fashion. Over 150 photographs and detailed maps pin-point all the sights and curiosities that you can visit on your own.

    What a great book! If you are tired of the usual guides always giving you the same information, check this one out. It is full of anecdotes, history, legends, and with tons of curious and wild places to visit. And yes, there are maps, so it is easy to find the places.

    This is the prefect guide for people who are a bit bored with the usual places found in regular guides. Did you know Spain has it's own toothfairy: a mouse called Perez. And you can actually go visit his house! Great guide.
