Herb Lester Associates research, write, print and distribute maps and guides to the world's great cities. We seek out the well-used and much-loved, and enjoy the extraordinary as well as the everyday.
Old bookshops and new coffee shops, park benches and dive bars, hat shops and haberdashers: this is the world according to Herb Lester. Our European travels bring us to the Spanish capital, a huge and daunting metropolis, replete with interesting shops, galleries and wonderful food and drink.
The map contains 36 selections which run the gamut of the city’s attractions and its idiosyncracies. From the relative safety of cable car we gaze down at the vast expanse of the Casa de Campo, explore shops selling gloves, camping gear, old postcards and espadrilles, visit an abandoned station and one with its own forest.
Refreshment is on hand throughout: cerveza, jamón, bacalao and innumerable other delights essential to keep the visitor well-nourished in this great city.
