Madrid tourist art legacy. 2017 Summer in the city

Madrid, Spanish sangria

Granted. Madrid is hot in the summer. At times, it borders the unbearable for newcomers. https://madridmuseumtours.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/museo-del-Prado-en-verano.jpgLocals are used to it and high temperatures have no deterrent effect on their willingness to make the most of what Spain’s capital has to offer. Coping with heat in summertime is a way of life. The trick is to stay away from the outdoors when the sun chastises the asphalt jungle mercilessly. That’s when locals hit the air-conditioned restaurants and taverns all throughout the city to indulge in the usual feast of tapas and cold beer or the customary “tinto de verano”. Visitors can also do that. Right before or after visiting our first class museums. They are all equipped to make encounters with our art legacy a rewarding experience. The Prado, the Reina Sofía, the Thyssen-Bornemisza, the Sorolla, Lázaro Galdiano and the San Fernando Royal Academy of Fine Arts museums, as well as many others, offer the best art for your money all throughout the year. Outside temperatures are not an issue. https://madridmuseumtours.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/verano-en-Madrid.jpgThen, there are the green spaces, parks and lakes like the Retiro, the Casa de Campo or the Madrid Río park by the Manzanares river. They are all true oasis which provide solace to the potential victims of summer heat. Nighttime is another story. This is the moment to make your way to the rooftop terraces spread throughout downtown Madrid and admire the view while sipping your favorite cocktail. Then, there’s the music. Festivals and concerts encompassing different styles and genres have blossomed all over the city. Rythm is in the air, inside and outside. So, don’t let the effects of climate change make you shy away from a summer experience in Madrid. It’s not as bad as it is claimed. Dress properly, light garments and a scarf to protect yourself from the air-conditioned facilities, and make the most of Madrid in the summer. It is worth it.
