Another Quirky Town

December 3, 2012

Madrid is a former mining town that now draws tourist for its eclectic appearance. You can get an idea of this quirky place by clicking on the link. While in Santa Fe a couple we met suggested that we stop for a visit before we returned our rental car to Albuquercue. I had thirty minutes to walk around and take pictures. Some of these will give you an idea of what it looks like.

I don’t recall what the population is but we heard that property is reasonable. I’ll save the rest of the images for another time…

    We loved Madrid and had a great meal at a small cafe whose name I cannot remember. Your photos bring back nice memories.

      Happy to hear that you are familiar with Madrid. We didn’t have a lot of time to spend there. Maybe next time around.
