“It is not the life of a rich man, but it is very rich,” says Camilo’s well-known song. And the truth is that in Madrid you don’t have to be on the list of the richest in Spain to enjoy many of the most luxurious options in the capital.

Hammam Al ndalus, a bath in history

Being able to relax in a traditional Hammam in the heart of Madrid is possible.

The experience lasts an hour and a half and consists of a bath alternating between its three rooms of water at different temperatures: the cold pool, at 18C, the warm one at 36C and the hot one, where the water reaches 40C. When booking, the client can choose between the relaxing massage, made with essential oils that leave the skin soft and perfumed, or the bath mix, cleansing the skin plus relaxing massage, a treatment performed on the traditional hot stone of the Hammam with a cotton fiber glove called kessa“and a paste of natural red grape soap. The reservation can be made from 55 euros here.

Ham cutting class with Iberian tasting

At number 80 Calle Mayor in Madrid, attendees receive a master class on ham cutting. An expert in the field will teach the basic keys: the correct position of the hands and the knives on the piece, the quality of the cut, the grain, the texture, the aroma, the color, the level of fat… At the same time, while explaining how ham is cut into thin slices, the local staff tells the story of acorn-fed ham, starting with the pastures where pigs graze and ending with the cutting and curing stages, always in search of the highest levels of excellence. When the participant finishes his piece, he can taste the slices of ham that he has cut. The class, lasting an hour and a quarter, concludes with a tasting of Iberian products (tenderloin, chorizo, salami, cheese and bread).
