It seems that November is the season for all kinds of markets. So the visitor of Madrid can enjoy different types of markets. Suppose that we have been to the ecological food farm, bought our vegetables for dinner. But we still have time to enjoy l the city and buy some gifts. It’s been days that passes through the Gran Via. But you realize that everything they sell in zara is the same they have in your city “the negative consequences of globalization,¿ Is the end of the authentic things?
Don’t despair you still have places where you can buy something exotic and interesting. The “souks” of Madrid. Small markets, with clothing and accessories that seem to have been brought from Morocco directly. They are different types, located in various places of the city, Plaza de Santa Ana, Plaza de Santo Domingo, Goya market Plaza de Jacinto Benavente , and the market in the Atocha station.
The latter two are usually until January.
Atocha is my favorite. Because not only is in a warm place where you can enjoy a juice, or hot tea you can also try the typical Spanish hot chocolate. As you walk among leather bags witch still smell like desert, scarves, cotton hats, gloves, earrings ….. All this surrounded by exotic vegetation. Palm tree, bamboo , orchids. ¡¡oH i don’t want to forget about the turtles !!! .All invited you to think about this as station in a faraway place.
What wakes you from your sleep, is the announcing of your train to Barcelona. At you find yourself sitting and looking out the window, while you stroking the beautiful scarf that bought for family friend . And all this in Madrid station. ¿ Is not that amazing?
This is one o my favorite place in Madrid and I hope the next time you are here you enjoy this wonderful place like a I do every day.
Welcome to Madrid Atocha the next station to your dream.
