Activities in the fresh air
The fourth edition of Gatoterrazas arrives in Madrid this Wednesday, June 20th with the best plans to welcome the summer we’ve all been waiting for.

The best music of the summer
Known as a unique city for all lovers of music, Madrid celebrates its new cycle of Noches del Botánico. This is a new edition that returns to reunite the stages to national artists -Andrés Calamaro, Iván Ferreiro, and Los Planetas- and international artists -Woody Allen, Ben Harper, and Beirut-, as well as new, talented, contemporary artists that will present their successes and new found talent. All of this will take place in a unique environment inside the nature of the Jardín Botánico de la Complutense. Along with the live music, attendees can enjoy a variety of food options thanks to the many food trucks that will be parked in the area.
Entrance: 25 euros.
A new (sweet) meeting point
The torrijas are to Madrid as the ensaimadas are to Mallorca. A sweet and essential delicacy that everyone needs to try at least once in their lives, especially if visiting Madrid. Crunchy on the outside and juicy on the inside, they can be found in distinct varieties: angel hair, of chocolate, of cream… the options are endless. But the best part is that now you can enjoy it in the heart of the Chamberí neighborhood in Madrid. If you are in a hurry to conquer your sweet-tooth and you love Mallorcan pastries, Formentor is opening their third establishment in number 62 on the street Santa Engracia. A grand opening that, along with the ensaimadas, will bring novelties like the Mallorcan almond horchata, the coca de trampo, the lamb empanadas, and the cocarrois.
