Quirky Madrid

Madrid is a cosmopolitan capital, a seat of empire, replete with boulevards, fountains, museums, palaces – and of course more cathedrals and churches per square mile than the British have pubs.

It is also a city of narrow, crooked streets, bars, restaurants, whole stores dedicated to jamon, turron and other delicacies and treats, a city of street performers, street markets and the vitality and quirkiness of everyday life.

Here are a few photographs, from the Sunday market of El Rastro to the streets of old Madrid.
