Take a walk of Madrid’s most historic sites from the most famous to lesser-known ones. You will enjoy seeing the iconic Royal Palace, a 2,000-year old Egyptian temple, eating in the world’s oldest restaurant and visiting one of the oldest guitar-making workshops in Spain. These are some of my favorite places in downtown.
