April in Madrid can be summed up in one word rainy! Having said that, provided you bring your umbrella, you can easily explore the city to your heart's content. It's not all bad news however, because despite the fact that you can expect an average of 50mm of rain throughout April, around 10 days, there are also 7 hours of sunshine per day to enjoy, which makes Madrid a great destination during this month of the year.

Bars and Restaurants

La Libre

Halfway between a cafe and bookshop, La Libre is a Lavapies hangout spot that makes a great place to start the day over a filling breakfast or stop by for a light snack and a cup of coffee. Very much a neighbourhood cafe, you can be assured a warm welcome at La Libre. They also run a number of workshops and cultural presentations throughout the year.

For dependable tapas, head to La Musa Latina. Situated on a side street off the Calle de Segovia, the culinary offerings at this place are many and include traditional Spanish tapas with modern fusions and unique ingredients.

Things to do in Madrid in April

El Rastro

It's no secret that Madrid is a shopper's paradise and you'll find whatever you're in search of here, from high-street fashion, to antiques, luxury goods and much more. The city is home to many charming flea markets, the largest and most enduring being El Rastro, which is held every Sunday during the year between Calle Embajadores and the Ronda de la Toledo. A great wealth of products can be bought here, both second-hand and new. Keep a sharp eye on your belongings, as pickpockets are known to frequent the area, and enjoy the atmosphere of this buzzing and eclectic market.

Temple of Debod

Dating back to the 2nd century BC, the Temple of Debod is certainly one of Madrid's more unusual monuments and was donated to the city in the 1970s by the Egyptian government to protect it from flooding and natural disasters. Having lived a long and varied history, the temple was built in honour of the god Amum and the goddess Isis, and was subsequently closed off from the 6th century onwards with the advent of Christianity in the region. Nowadays it's been restored to its former glory and every effort has been made to preserve the structure. A maximum of 30 people can be admitted inside at any one time, for a length of 30 minutes tops.

Fuente de Cibeles

Nestled in the centre of the city, Cibeles Square is one of Madrid's most impressive public places and is a must-visit for architecture aficionados. Punctuated by the elaborate Fuente de Cibeles (Cybeles Fountain), the square is surrounded by the Buenavista Palace, the Casa de America and Palace of Communications. The fountain isn't purely ornamental, however; it originally provided water for the people of Madrid through two standpipes, one of which would supply water to houses and the other to people.

Gran Via

Another Madrid thoroughfare that can't be avoided and deserves a visit alone owing to its architectural grandeur is the Gran Via. Home to many of the city's shops and businesses, this sweeping boulevard forms the backbone of the city and is due to be pedestrianised this year (2018). Widely considered to be one of the greatest urban planning projects of the city, whole neighbourhoods were bulldozed to make way for this elegant boulevard.


A short train journey from Madrid, Segovia is the perfect option for a day trip if you're looking to savour some history and culture away from the hubbub of the Spanish capital. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985, the town's singular most impressive sight is the 166-arch aqueduct that lords over the surrounding area, paying homage to the legacy of the Roman Empire in Spain.
