What to do in Madrid in August

Visiting the Museums

A perfect option to escape from the warm temperatures and at the same time learning how to enjoy Arts. Visiting the “Arts triangle” would be the answer for many foreign visitors if they were asked for what to do in Madrid in August. The so-called “Arts triangle” includes The Prado Museum , Reina Sofía National Museum (Contemporary Art) and The Thyssem-Bornemisza Museum. If you have time you might also visit 5 other museums: The Fine Arts Museum, Cerralbo, Lázaro Galdiano, Museum of Romanticism and Sorolla.

Veranos de la Villa (Summer events in Madrid)

Veranos de la Villa is held this year from July 1st to August 30th. On the new stage at Puente del Rey there will be Dancing, Flamenco Zarzuela (Spanish Opera), Cinema and Musical Theatre.


Going to the Open Air Cinema

Best option probably for a summer night in Madrid. Following we are stating several of them not far from the city centre:

Fescinal 2015 (Bombilla Park), La Casa Encendida, Centro Cibeles, Urban Beach Cinema at Conde Duque Cultural Centre, etc. We would like also to recommend you a less centrally located and well known unique venue called The Olivar de Castillejo Foundation. Scheduled events include music concerts, theatre or cinema (open air).

Going to La Paloma Festivity

It is an open-air local festivity held on August 15th at La Latina district that honors the Virgin of Paloma. Some days before on August 7th  and 10th is the turn of Saint Cayetano where the historical Rastro (a flea market) is located and Saint Lorenzo in the Lavapiés neighborhood respectively. You will enjoy attending the religious procession together with the taking down of a painting of the Virgin by members of the local firemen brigade. It´s so “castizo”, this is to say “Madrilian”!

Santiago Bernabeu Stadium Tour
