It is true that probably February is not the warmest month of the year, but it´s definitely a great period to visit Madrid and avoid the masses of people.
Advantages of visiting Madrid in February:
It´s the best period to admire the contemporary art, the Madrid ARCO Exhibition opens on the 22nd until the 26th of February where more than 200 art gallery´s from all over the glove represent the best artists. This year Argentine is the invited country, by all means surely a great spectacle.
Fashion lovers also gather in Madrid during this month, the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week where fashion, luxury and comfort takes place during from the 16th to the 21st of February; designers with the fame of Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, Custo Barcelona, Roberto Torretta, Ulises Mérida will celebrate their catwalk during this week.
Until the 28th of February Madrid´s Sale will be held, a great opportunity to visit the luxury stores in town, visiting the last fashion tendencies in the area of Salesas and Chueca or the area of Augusto Figueroa where the best shoe shops are located is a great plan.
Enjoy the most caloric plates of the gastronomy without regrets, breakfast “churros con chocolate” at the famous Chocolatería de San Gines becomes a pleasure. Have a “cocido” (stew) at the Restaurant La Bola, or the best roasts at Casa Botin and of course having a prawn sandwich at the Plaza Mayor
Get a table at the new and busiest restaurants and bars of the town like in Amazónico, Sushita Café, Habanera, Dstage, or having a drink at the Museo Chicote or a cocktail at “Del Diego” avoiding the crowd of the high season.
We adore Madrid in Winter, moreover the Palacio Pl Conde de Miranda gets an special colour, the light, the decoration and the fireplace makes the return after a busy day at the city, a coolly pleasure
