Climate
 

Because of its inland location Madrid can get very hot in the summer, with average high temperatures reaching to the mid thirties Celsius. It can also get very cold in winter, with lows just above zero degrees Celsius. For these reasons, combined with the summer crowds, many people prefer to visit in spring or autumn. At these times of year the climate is more equable, though still very pleasant, and spring flowers and autumn leaves fill the city with colour.

Shopping
 

High street clothing and shoe shops, and the department store El Corte Inglés, can be found in the busy pedestrianised zone of Puerta del Sol. Nearer to the grand architecture of Gran Vía, the shops become more upmarket. Upscale boutiques such as Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel and Gucci can also be found in the Salamanca district. For traditional shops, one of the best places in Madrid to head is Austrias next to Plaza Mayor.

Food
 

Madrid offers some spectacular cuisine, from authentic Spanish dishes to international fare. Castilian dishes include cocido Madrileño, a meat and chickpea stew, and cochinillo asado, roasted pig. There is also plenty of tapas on offer, often given free when drinks are purchased. Popular Spanish eateries include Pan de Lujo, Ribeira do Miño and the flamenco restaurant La Corral de la Morería. For international cuisine, there is everything from Japanese restaurants such as Nagoya to Lieu Restaurante, offering French fare with a Spanish twist. Lavapiés is good for cheap international food.

Nightlife
 

Nightlife in Madrid can be sedate or lively, with many outdoor cafes and restaurants turning into outdoor clubs later on. Plaza Santa Ana is a popular area and the narrow, winding streets of La Latina, the city’s oldest neighbourhood, is another great spot for tapas bars. Like most places in Spain, the locals tend to go out late and stay out late, with many clubs not livening up until the early hours.
