When people go to Spain they usually think about the Spanish food, and in Madrid the most typical thing to eat are Churros. The only problem is that I usually hear bad comments about them because most people dont really know where to go. Chocolateria San Gines is the absolute must stop place to get Churros and hot chocolate. The restaurant has been serving Churros for over 100 years since 1894 and is now franchising there brand in Japan. Partying late? the best time to eat a churro is at 6 am when ever one is coming out of the clubs. So remember to go to Chocolateria San Gines they have the best Churros in town! 

About 3 Euros for Churros and Chocolate

Madrid History

Madrid stayed in Muslim hands until approximately the end of the 11th century, at which point it was handed over to a precursor to the modern Spanish state.  All of the history of Madrid from that time to the present is very much in keeping with the image of Madrid as a Spanish Town and it is for that reason that many people tell the idealized Roman version of the history, because that tends to [...]
