Arte de la Calle

Walking is definitely the best way to get around Madrid. Though the architecture alone is jaw-dropping, some of the street art really blew me away, especially because most of it is used as advertisement for local businesses. The following photos are two of my favorite pieces that I saw today!

I thought this mariposa was absolutely beautiful. It was part of a sign hanging outside of a restaurant.

This painting is done on the gate of Al Otro Lado, a local bar. The first time I walked past it I knew I needed a photo, so I made sure to take one on our walk back to the hotel!
