Mad4Madrid is a group of very different people, but with the same passion: our love for Madrid. The day to day of our team turns around marketing online, web design, communication and journalism. Our occupations have helped us to create a useful website (we hope you will find what you like easily), different (we want to keep out of the established rules) and overall, very crafted (we have spent many hours before it came to light).

Here you will find restaurants, bars, locals, and places the madrileños go to very often. What’s more, our activities, routes, and plans will help you to discover Madrid in a 100% authentic way, very different from what the majority of the travel guides show you.

Our goal? We want you to live the city in a different way (forget the typical places only for tourists). It doesn’t matter if you’re staying only for a few days, a few weeks or a longer period of time; we assure you that with our suggestions you will enjoy the most authentic part of Madrid, the same way the madrileños do.
