The first place we go today is Plaza Mayor. We love to see what is going on. The perfect place for a fun photo!
Vern, Me, and Lisa looking our best!
Today we are exploring areas of the City that we drove past on the bus tour last weekend.
Open air double decker bus.
The Cathedral is beautiful from the outside and even more impressive from the inside.
One of the main cloisters of the Cathedral in Madrid.
A section of the ceiling.
I'm enjoying the walk from the Cathedral on the side of the street with the most shade. Fortunately for us there was some wonderful music on that side of the street also.
Thank you for the music!
After dinner we attended a free concert at the Real Basilica de San Francisco el Grande Madrid. A choir from the Rottenburg Cathedral….Rottenburg, Germany performed. The young women had angelic voices. I thought that the best effect was when they formed a circle under the dome…it sounded beautiful! The organist who accompanies the choir has won many awards for his playing. After listening to him for a few moments I can understand why.
