Concerts at Caixaforum Madrid

The first concert can be enjoyed on Friday 6 (at 18:00 and 19:00) and the group is Boli ma brujo, a trio that play a fusion of jazz and their own unique style. They are known for their vocal and instrumental improvisations and original arrangements. 

On Saturday 7 December (at 18:00 and 19:00), it’s the turn of saxophonist Iris Guzmán who will play two outstanding pieces from music history: a piece by Bach, originally composed for the flute, and another by Berio, composed for the oboe. 

The final concert on 8 December (12:00 and 13:00) will feature Trío Mejunje, three Cuban artists who bring us the colour, music, energy and dance of their home country.

What’s more, these three concerts are free until seating capacity is reached. So make sure you arrive early. The good news doesn’t end there. If you are lucky enough to have a holiday on Monday, entrance to the Caixaforum Madrid is free on 9 December

Open doors at the Congress and Senate

Constitution Day is celebrated on 6 December and to commemorate it, both the Congress and the Senate will open its doors to the public for the day. If you decide to visit Congress, you will be welcomed with a coffee or hot chocolate, before passing through the famous Lions’ Doors. From there, you will move onto the Conference Hall and the Chamber. On the first floor, you can visit the Mariana Pineda Room, the Constitutional Room and the Ernest Lluch Room. To gain access, you simply need to present your DNI, passport or residence card.

Experience something unique at the Game of Thrones exhibition

The perfect day out for fans of the most popular series in recent years. The exhibition is being held at Ifema, and it stretched for over a thousand metres squared! It includes all the main sets from the series, giving you the opportunity to pass through the wintry landscapes of the North and the King’s Landing, discover the home of the Night’s Watch or even sit on the Iron Throne. 

You can also see some of the authentic clothes and accessories from the series, such as Cersei’s outfits, Dothraki’s uniforms, the necklace that hid the poison that killed Joffrey, the skulls from the dragons’ crypt and Arya Stark’s famous ‘Needle’.
