Surviving August with Zuigo Madrid

In spite of August being a very quiet month in Madrid, our organisers made a big effort to uplift the spirtis of those who did not manage to get away from the city. Here is a summary of the activities they suggested:

Urban walk through Madrid's "Milla de Acero"

Our friends of Détente Madrid designed a new walk through the streets of Gran Vía and Fuencarral with their special Détente guide and their personal shopper. A great mix of history and shopping tips made this walk a very interesting experience, both for locals and tourists.

Perseids 2013 - Open till dawn 

How long since you spent a night under the stars? In the delightful environment of Casa Bellota, we spent a wonderful night which included a visit to the Moon Museum, night photography, stories, telescope, slow food, chill out and a bivouac under the stars in a juniper forest.

Legends and Mysteries of Madrid 

Do you really know your city? Madrid en Ruta opened our eyes in a journey through the mysteries and legends hidden in the old Madrid.

Engraving workshop 

Taller de Grabado y Creación (TGC) offered us this very special workshop in their country house "El Jacalito" taught by Javier Pérez Aranda and Santiago Roldán, two professional engravers specialised in contemporary art.

Workshop on Consciousness Raising

We spent a weekend finding our inner selves. A journey through introspection to find balance and armony in the beautiful surroundings of Casa Bellota.

This month of September we are working hard to carry on bring you original events to help you shake off the post summer blues. Check for interesting stuff to do in Madrid and Paris at zuigo.com.
