The day spent with Chef Gabriela is a memory maker! She is generous of time and explanation with her guiding me, a novice, and she, wonderful in spirit.

Every vacation my family, wife; son (14), and myself take a cooking class. What was unique about this class was that we met and cooked in Chef Gabriela's residence. It was a joy to come into the world of her kitchen. Everything had a personal touch. Some of the ingredients came from her country home. Everything was explained and then... More

The purpose of our tour was to visit and film the saffron fields. It became a wonderful 4-days-encounter of La Mancha. Our very friendly driver, Roberto, brought us,, two Belgian couples, from the Madrid airport to the hotel "De Las Letras", near the old centre of Madrid. It was a good hotel with friendly welcome. The next day we travelled... More

My first trip in Madrid was excellent! Our tour guide was knowledgeable, funny and our tour through Madrid was great. It reminded me a lot of Rome due to the streets not being set on a square block format. I loved our experiences in Madrid and A Taste of Spain really helped to make this a great trip!

Our tour started in Madrid where we stayed at a beautiful hotel close to the Prado Museum. The next day we went to a Iberico lunch with a master carver of the iberico ham and Spanish wines. Then that evening we were able to see an excellent flamenco show and dinner. We also had a walking tour of Madrid. A... More

We took a cooking class in Madrid with Gabriela Llamas through A Taste of Spain. We were to adults and children ages (15, 13, 10). The class was fabulous. Gabriela was charming and engaging and introduced us to real Spanish cooking. We wanted to be "hands on" so cooked alongside Gabriela. Both the adults and kids had a great time.... More

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
