Upon arriving in Madrid, I found myself reading a lot about the various markets the city had to offer. Our first morning, we ventured out to find Mercado de San Antón for some lunch.

The experiences we've documented so far have been for the most part positive ones, but this next stop in Madrid was a bit disappointing.

A proper … Continue reading 3 course meal (bottle of wine included) on a budget! #Barceloneta
