Real Madrid

Real Madrid - The Santiago Bernabeu.

I really wouldn't have gotten away with discussing what happened in advance with my wife but it turned out that she was equally impressed. Not sure if it had something to do with the Real Madrid Goalie!

We arrived on a Monday afternoon in Madrid and took the City Tour Bus and got off at the home ground of Real Madrid football club as most of the art galleries were closed on Mondays and it also gave us an opportunity to see the landmarks of the city.

The ground holds over 80,000 spectators and is simply enormous. Here is a view of the pitch and also where the players and substitutes sit. Inside the Club there is an exhibition area absolutely stuffed with Memorabilia and history of the most famous football club in the World.

Real Madrid went on to beat Real Betis in La Liga the following Saturday, after I had blessed the pitch, by 6-1. Yes, that's six goals to one!

They didn't do too well the following week however, when Liverpool took them apart!
