Thank you, Sydney and Mr Kiwi.

I had a very good time taking the pictures of the big statues with my friends...

Now we have some cows.





You probably know that Madrid´s simbol is a bear by a tree...now it´s a cow























At the Salamanca neighbourhood.







Elegant elephants.





Ihope you like them.

Excellent photos Madridhere. The statues are great and add a lot of character to the city (not that Madrid needs it!)

Such a beautiful city, and so underrated as well. It should be on every traveller's must-see list.

Citything, it used to belike that come years ago, but it´s changing a lot. Tourists are everywhere and are really an important source of incomings to Madrid. Briefly there are three groups: businesmen, cultural tourists, young people looking for good night life. The city offers interesting things for everyone, I think.

Here you have "The thinker" by Rodin in front of Caixaforum. It was a temporary exhibition. The building was made by Herzog and De Meuron and is in front of Museo del Prado.



This picture was made by Julio Vert



Here you have the patio of Reina Sofia Museum of Modern Art by Jean Nouvel. It contains the sculpture "Bruchstroke" by American artist Liechtenstein. And also temporary heads by Manolo Valdés.















Classical Madrid near Museo del Prado




A painter going to Museo del Prado









Spanish Painter Goya with the naked "Maja"(a picture by him) at his feet.








A church near Plaza Colón (Salesas). Outside and inside.









The roof of Círculo de Bellas Artes, near Gran Vía.





A shop of wines and restaurant (Atocha st.)



An obelisk commemorating the war against Napoleon.



A monster near Puerta del Sol.



That´s al for now.
