2 IAESTE SPAIN SUMMER WEEKENDS 2016 Madrid-August 5-7, 2016

3 A brief history of Madrid Welcome to Madrid! Iaeste Madrid LC hopes that you enjoy this weekend at our city. Madrid became the capital of Spain on the XVI century under king Felipe II. He was sick all the time, and decided to settle the new capital in the centre of his kingdom, so he would be able to be anywhere within Spain in the same amount of time. Back then, and until late XVII, Madrid was a very small city that suddenly grew, absorbing other smaller villas with expansions and urban plans, that now shape the neighbourhoods adjacent to the centre. The city centre maintains almost the same old structure as back in time. Gran Vía is the biggest commercial artery of Madrid. It was built recently, a century ago, renovating part of the historical centre. The Paseo del Prado was built in the XVIII century and it is the cultural artery of the city, containing the four great museums of Madrid. Puerta del Sol is considered to be the centre of Madrid. Madrid is a city of street-living. We are known as cats because we like to be out in the street from dawn to dusk. Explore all the neighbourhoods and as many bars and cafes as you can!

4 General Tips Transport and arrival: Madrid has a great Metro and bus network. Each trip is 1.50 and a 10 way ticket is You can get the tickets at any metro station. If you take the bus, you can only buy single rides from the bus driver, or pay with a 10-way ticket. During this summer, line 1 will not work. If you want to reach the hostels by public transport, the closes metro station is Sol (lines 2 and 3). From the train station, Atocha, you can take a light trains (C3 or C4), instead of metro, to reach Sol and it will cost you 1.7 each ride. Train stations: Atocha (south) and Chamartín (north) Bus stations: Mendez Álvaro (south) and Avenida de América (north) The closest metro station (working) to the hostels is Sol (red and yellow)

5 General Tips Robbery: Please be aware of your personal belongings at all times. There are hundreds of experts thieves on the streets looking to steal your wallet, even more when they see you are a tourist. *V* Tortilla de Patatas: Potato omelete. Sometimes with mixed vegetables inside or decorated with red pepper. Food: Some nights we will be out eating tapas. Tapas is free food that bars and cafeterias gives you when you get a drink. You can not choose them because they are a gift from the house. This might be an issue for vegetarians, so we have included here some common tapas to help you choose the right bite. *V* = vegetarian Croquetas: fried dough with MEAT inside. Sometimes it has mushrooms or cheese, but usually chicken or jamon. *V* Cheese over bread: The most common types are Cabrales (strong blue) and Manchego (cured and/or in olive oil). Sometimes includes garlic tomato sauce. *V* Patatas Bravas: fried potatoes with spicy tomato sauce

6 Weekend in Madrid: Friday, arrival and dinner. Arrival to hostels: We have selected some good hostels and checked their availability in these dates. This hostels are close to all the events, easy to walk to, and offer breakfast. The closest metro station is Antón Martín but currently that line is not working. If you can not find a bed in any of this three, let us know and we will recommend you another one. Cats Hostel: ---> Calle Cañizares 6 Mad Hostel: ---> Calle de la Cabeza 24 On Friday, once you have left your bags at the hostel. We will give you your welcome packs and registering you for the events. DINNER: At 9:00pm we will go to have dinner together at El Tigre!, calle hortaleza 23. PARTY: Moondance Club, calle Aduana 21. Let s Danceeeeee!!!! IMPORTANT! BRING I.D. WITH YOU!

7 Weekend in Madrid: Saturday Morning: We leave the morning free, so you can sleep-in or go to museums or do shopping. Remember that most breakfasts at the hostels finish early! LUNCH: Pizzas at Templo de Debod, at 1.30pm. We meet right at the temple, you need to go upstairs inside the park. The temple is big and visible :) Closest metro is Plaza de España, but you should be able to come walking from the city center. The Debod temple is a real temple, a gift from Egypt to Spain, moved here stone by stone. You can enter for free! The park that the temple is at is very nice and has great views of the Palace and the riverside. Here we can rest during the hottest hours of the day. WARNING! Do not drink beer of other alcoholic drinks in public areas. It is not legal and has very big fines. The police are being very strict with this and we can not have any responsibility in these matters. Any soft drinks or water are ok to bring!

8 Weekend in Madrid: Saturday CITY GAME: We meet at Km 0, in Puerta del Sol at 5:00pm. The km 0 is the point where the six mayor radial highways of Spain start their kilometer count. This place has a big tile on the floor, right under the big clock. Before the game you will receive your new IAESTE T-shirt that we will use during the game. Within the city game we will tell you the history of Madrid and its buildings. Join us for the tour! After this you can explore the city by yourself or rest a little bit :) DINNER: Spanish food in La Pomarada, at 9:00pm, calle Conde Duque 5. PARTY: Mitty Club, calle Julián Romea 4. This time we are going harder!!!. IMPORTANT! BRING I.D. WITH YOU!

9 Weekend in Madrid: Sunday LUNCH: We meet at Retiro Park at 1:30pm. We will meet behind the lake, at the big statue and classical columns portico to have a picnic here! The Retiro Park is a must-do on a Sunday morning for any Madrid citizens. Here you can rent boats by the lake, bring any guitar you have and relax surrounded by young people. Retiro Park has been renovated many times over history, therefore it offers different landscape fixtures, exhibition centres like the Crystal Palace, and also hidden secret places... You will probably leave sometime in the evening, so here we will say......see you at the next Weekend!
