Watch Out

Imported item 878

Madrid is a relatively safe city, just be wary of small nonviolent crimes like pickpocketing

Imported item 877

Local nightlife could go on until 5AM-6AM during the weekends; staying in Gran Via can become a nightmare for light sleepers

Imported item 876

People from Madrid sometimes live by a daily routine that’s influenced by climate, this results in midday 'siesta' naps during summer and especially on holidays and weekends
