In his debut Apple Maps Guide, Arkano walks us through some his favorite places inspired by Madrid. If you're visiting this amazing city, stop by these places to discover some inspiration of your own.Less
If you believe bookstores are inspiring places, imagine the first LGBTQ bookstore in Spain. Berkana Bookstore is full of ideas, inspiration, and stories of struggle.
From time to time I like to drop by the Plaza de Tirso de Molina for a drink because it’s full of life and colour. Each time I walk through here I daydream about someone giving me flowers.
There was a time when I lived around here, and I used to go down to Café Central to enjoy good jazz. It’s one of the best clubs in Madrid, one night they even let me come up to rap!
The Círculo de Bellas Artes had to be on the guide. To start, the views that the Rooftop has are amazing. You can see all of Madrid, and they have a number of activities that they put on. It's a classic!
This is one of the most important museums in the world. They let me perform a freestyle rap in the museum inspired by one of the exhibits; it was unforgettable. Also, Bosch's “Garden of Earthly Delights” is here. It’s so impressive and inspiring to see in person. Make sure you check out this spot!
When I have some time I like to come to Cuesta de Moyano, next to Atocha. It’s a very charming place where they have second-hand books of all kinds. You can always find a gem!
