Downtown Madrid photo tour – part 2

It’s been more than a year since I published the first part of this photo tour, in part due to lack of time, and in part due to laziness. Sorry for that. The next one will come sooner. 🙂

In this collection, I’d like to share with you a couple more cool photos of this fascinating city, one of Europe’s imperial capitals.
