Other things to note
November is a relatively quiet month before the Christmas fanfare. There are still many things to do in Madrid at that time since the weather is still good. Fall days are lovely with lots of sunny hours, the parks’ tree leaves change from dozens of green to become yellowish and brownish and you can still have a coffee or a hot chocolate at a terraza. The sky is usually still startlingly blue, however, and you can sit at a pavement café in the bright sunshine in the afternoon after visiting the Prado.
If you need another nudge, you should visit Madrid in November because
• The city is relatively calm and empty before the Christmas turmoil.
• It’s almost the beginning of the Christmas season.
• Airfares and lodging prices are considerably lower than in December.
Although Madrid is the third largest city in the EU after London and Berlin, its centre is relatively compact and flat and so from El sitio de Adrian y Miguel the city can be easily toured by foot.
The 200th anniversary of the Teatro Real (Royal Opera Theatre), which has already begun commemorating its foundation in 1818 by extending its repertoire and working with opera houses around the world. During November you can enjoy two operas with Spanish theme: Carmen by Bizet (sung in French) and La Favorita by Donizetti (Italian version). December will be Puccini’s turn with La Bohème.
November 9th: La Almudena. The Virgen de la Almudena is the patroness of Madrid and this day is a local holiday. There is usually a large mass in the Plaza Mayor followed by a procession back to the Cathedral. The procession is lead by chulaposand chulapas dressed in traditional clothing. It’s a good chance of getting to see Madrileños wearing what they normally don’t.
Christmas Lights: On the last Friday of the month the major of Madrid inaugurates the Christmas lights to fill the city with a magical air. These beautiful illuminations are a sight to be seen and you shouldn’t miss some of the best decorations following a Christmas Lights walk.
Picasso / Lautrec from October the 17th. The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum presents a pictorial exhibition of the time Pablo Ruiz Picasso (Malaga, 1881 – Mougins, 1973) spent in Paris, focusing on the relationship between the Spaniard’s early work and that of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
Painter Mariano Fortuny ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)) Exhibition from 21st November at Museo Nacional del Prado. This exhibition will be a particularly exceptional and unrepeatable one due to its focus on all the different phases within Fortuny’s career as a painter, watercolourist, draughtsman and printmaker, while also giving special emphasis to the influence on his work of the great painters that he studied in the Prado.
Norman Foster / Common Futures: from October the 6th. Twelve exhibitions sections offer an overview of the British architect’s ideas regarding various issues of social interest. At Espacio Fundación Telefónica
In Madrid’s ridiculously over-the-top former main post office which now houses CentroCentro ((URL HIDDEN) a cultural centre where there are always a few exhibitions on (mostly free). You can also just read newspapers, use the free Wi-Fi or take in the view across the city from the tower or the charming terrace bar.
A traditional Madrileño dish, cocido is a chickpea-based stew. Most popular during the winter months but served year round, it is a hearty dish prepared with meat and vegetables. There are a thousand different ways to make cocido, and no two locals can agree on the best. Are you (and your stomach) up to the challenge of finding the city’s best cocido when you’re visiting Madrid this November? Start with Lhardy (Carrera de San Jerónimo, 8), which boasts one of the oldest recipes in the city.
Tip: In Spain, lunch is the main meal of the day. Spaniards eat late, generally between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Embrace the Spanish way with a big lunch to power you through an afternoon of sightseeing.
At Chocolatería Valor (Postigo de San Martín 7; cho(URL HIDDEN) or at Chocolateria San Gines (Pasadizo San Ginés, 5) where weary Christmas shoppers take refuge at marble tables with cups of traditional gloopy chocolate with a few energy-restoring churro fritters to dunk in it.
Wrap up and walk...
Through the Retiro Park, then join the crowds watching the performers by the lake. If it gets a bit nippy, there might well be an exhibition on at the Palacio de Velázquez or the Palacio de Cristal where you can thaw out.
El Rastro. Pay a visit to Madrid’s flea market area on a Sunday morning, the busiest day of the week. The market dates back over 400 years and almost everything imaginable is on sale at the hundreds of stalls arranged along the narrow sloping streets.
Take a day trip
As much as we love Madrid, we understand everyone needs to escape the city from time to time. Recharge your batteries by venturing outside the capital, and see what else the province has to offer. Check cities’ tourism board websites for lists of events in November. One of the most popular day trips from Madrid is to Toledo.
Already visited Toledo? Autumn is the perfect time to visit the San Lorenzo del Escorial Monastery. Located just an hour northwest of Madrid in the Sierra de Guadarrama mountains, the majestic monastery is an UNESCO World Heritage site. Take your time exploring the grounds before sitting down for lunch in the charming historic town center.
Also in town:
How to get to there: Take bus #661 or #664 from Madrid’s Intercambiador de Moncloa to the San Lorenzo del Escorial Bus Station. Travel time is one hour.
Visit the Real Madrid Bernabeu Stadium
Even if you’re unable to score tickets to a game, you can still experience the magic of the Bernabeu Stadium. Considered a must-see destination for football fans, visitors are invited to tour Bernabeu’s museum, dressing rooms, presidential box and tunnel. While you’re visiting Madrid in November, walk out onto the pitch just like superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. Even non-football fans will be impressed by panoramic views of the stadium. Tickets can be purchased online or at the ticket office (Paseo de la Castellana, 142).
Price: 20 euros per adult; 14 euros per youth under-14; free for children under-5.
Marvel at Madrid’s Egyptian Temple
Madrid has it all, even its very own ancient Egyptian temple. The Temple of Debod, which sits atop a hill in Parque Oeste, was gifted to Spain for helping to preserve temples along the Nile. It opened to the public in 1972 and the area around the temple is a popular picnic spot on warm weather days. With its views of the Royal Palace and the Casa de Campo park, the Temple of Debod is also one of the best places to see the sunset when you’re visiting Madrid in November.
Tip: There is no entrance fee, but opening times can be tricky. The site is closed for four hours at lunch, as per Madrid tradition, and not open Saturday or Sunday afternoon. The closest metro stations are Plaza de España and Ventura Rodriguez.
