what to see and do in madrid



Last thing Olga and I thought about when we created Nakamad, was making boring, with no soul Madrid tours. Unfortunately, cities around the world are turning into the same thing, specially in Europe. So it´s time to show you how a Madrid alternative tour looks like, the non touristy things to do in Madrid.


Museums, heritage and historical buildings. Ok. What else?

We don´t go against marvelling with Prado Museum or walking down the Gran Via. But, what are doing when you finish? That´s the point about alternative things to do in Madrid: strolling through Las Salesas neighborhood; discovering charming plazas and narrow alleys next to Segovia´s Viaduct; or having a drink in Plaza de España area. So, your fancy Madrid guide doesn´t mention this? Sure not: that´s the alternative Madrid only locals know ;).


Yeap, Madrid can be as romantic as Paris

Have you walked along Madrid in autumn/fall? Did you have brunch in places like this? Or have you beheld a sunset in Madrid? Well, maybe non touristy things to do in Madrid are…be or fall in love.


Conferences, events & business trips…and back to your hotel. Really?

Business tourism events are skyrocketing in Madrid (we are the third city in the world in events organization, according ICCA 2018 ranking), so it´s quiiite posible you come to Madrid for business. Perfect. And what will you do after work, going to the hotel bar? Is that your idea of non touristy things to do in Madrid? No, sir/ma´am. You have a lot of alternative tourism plans to do in Madrid, even if you have just one day.

Example of non touristy things to do in Madrid: real tapas, visit charming streets
