Plaza del Toros, the bullring in Madrid

Spain: October 1999

This travelogue describes the fantastic eight days I spent in Madrid and its vicinity in October 1999. The individual pages have the pictures, but this overview page serves as index.


Madrid. To introduce the city, I will quote one of its famous mayors:
Madrid has turned into the fable of Europe. It is called the capital of joy and contentment. Describing our city in such terms means that it is welcoming, cordial, peaceful, and universal.
Looking north along Palacio Real.

Roof of the Toledo Catedral Toledo. History, culture, monuments, museums. And tourists.

Segovia. Aqeuduct, Alcázar, and lovely landscapes. Road view from the Alcazar in Segovia

One door in Alcala Alcalá de Henares. Famous University, Cervantes, and a quaint little town.
