In Madrid there are balconies everywhere. All you have to do is look up from time to time to appreciate the beautiful facades of the city. The iron railings of Madrid’s balconies are pretty in themselves, but when they are used as mini gardens, like this one, they add an extra splash of colour to the city.
This balcony, right in the middle of a busy pedestrian shopping area, grabs the attention of many passersby. The first time I saw it was a windy day and the brightly coloured plastic wind turbines where spinning around crazily. Needless to say I stopped to take some pics! And every time I pass by, I like to glance up and appreciate this oasis of nature breaking up the formal facades of the surrounding buildings.
Looking up from the pavement as you walk around the city will brighten up your day!
