Madrid is “the city of embrace,” or at least that’s something that new Mayor has been repeating ever since she swept to power last May. It’s a line that perplexed many, especially when the Spanish version “la ciudad del abrazo” sounds more like “the city of hugs.” While a city full of hugs could make a really nice holiday destination, the Mayor and her team are eager to expand upon the idea and welcome more people to discover the city.
