Semana Santa Activities

Decided to stay in Madrid during Semana Santa?  Not to worry, there are still many activities for you to enjoy!  This is a great time to enjoy the city as it tends to be quieter, as many locals have taken advantage of the break and left town.  Just think, a seat at your favourite bar, more than simply elbow room as you walk the streets around Sol and no queues!  Thats right!  The city is in rare form.  Enjoy!
