Madrid's "cavas" (Cava Alta, Cava Baja and Cava de San Miguel) were originally moats or ditches along the medieval city walls, moats used for defense and also as an escape route for people inside the city . Now, we use this caves as bars!!!!that´s the way we recycle in Madrid…

(Hi everybody, I´m ohcan (or nacho24, I had informatic problems jejeje), first of all sorry for my bad English. Well I´ll try to keep this blog alive until Dsole returns and hope to rise the occasion)


Las Cavas de Madrid ( Cava Alta, Cava Baja y Cava de San Miguel) fueron originariamente fosos o zanjas a lo largo de las murallas medievales ,los fosos eran utilizados como defensa y como una ruta de escape de la ciudad. Ahora esas grutas y rutas de escape las hemos convertido en bares y restaurantes repletos de tapas. Así reciclamos en Madrid…

(Hola a todos, como bien ha dicho Dsole soy ohcan (o nacho24, es que he tenido pequeños problemillas informáticos), y me ha dejado a cargo del blog, ¡¡madre mía qué responsabilidad!! , espero que no se note demasiado la ausencia de la jefa…)

Very nice! I like the small concrete balls used as street borders. And I love the colors of the red brick. Cool photo.

Great picture of an interesting part of Madrid. I didn't know about the escape routes needed in the city's history.
Your English is just fine. Keep up the good work.

Amazing photo! I love such places and I am always happy when I find similar views in Rome, Barcelona, Seville and other cities in southern Europe. Never been to Madrid but soon I will visit. Keep posting beautiful pics.
