Pereza1One month ago I wrote an article about Pereza, a Madrid Rock duo, who are currently number 6 in the Spanish Top 40 (Los 40 Principales). Well, I decided to fire off an email to ask them if they’d like to contribute in the ‘My Madrid’ section of this site and they said they would. Here are the answers to the questions I asked them about Madrid:


Favourite Bar/Café
– El Siroco
Favourite Dish – Tortilla de Patata
Favourite Tapas – Patatas Bravas
Favourite Restaurant – Casa Paco [Plaza Puerta Cerrada 11]
Favourite Shop – The stalls of the Rastro [famous flea market just off Tirso de Molino]
Best time of year in Madrid – June afternoons in the Retiro Park
Favourite Barrio – La Latina
Favourite Building(s) – The Windsor [a building which burnt down in February, 2005!]
My favourite day trip from Madrid is to … London
A perfect ‘night out’ in Madrid would …be in Malasaña
My favourite walk … El parque del Capricho, en la Alameda de Osuna [located outside the city centre]
