Hicimos por la mañana la parte antigua de la ciudad y nos gustó muchísimo, así es que por la tarde hicimos con Carmen la visita por el barrio de los escritores, un lugar con muchísimo encanto. Mañana el Madrid de los Borbones para irme con una idea completa de la ciudad gracias a una guía fantástica
