If you’ve never been to a bullfight, this is the world’s headquarters for the infamous Bull Run sport. Enjoy the passion and intensity of a bullfight in Plaza de Toros Monumental de las Ventas, the world’s largest bullring. Or head to the nearest brothel and enjoy the passion and intensity there., drink heavily, and wear a pair of bullhorns for the finale.
Alright, I know you’re laughing, a museum list. Don’t worry, so are we, and we’re typing this bilge. Unfortunately, there’s not a heck of a lot of titty bars and sports stuff to do in between lays in Madrid. So get yourself a cultured bimbo from the brothel and do a little touring. Maybe take some public exhibitionist photos of her while standing next to some Picassos. Museo del Prado
