Absolutely brilliant city to be born in, and for some of your family to live in. I know one thing they're very lucky to live there, its trully beatiful and a unique and amazing city. I could seriously see myself living in Madrid very easily, it was just that good and special!
Madrid is great!!! especially night life -famous movida- and autumn is the best time to visit the city. Sadly there's no beach there in spring and summer, so I prefer Barcelona or Valencia.

Real Madrid heroes Raul and Iker Casillas have signed "deals for life" with the Liga leaders, lasting until 2010 and 2011 respectively.
Club captain Raul, 30, and vice captain Casillas, 26, were joined by Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon and Santiago Bernabeu legend Alfredo di Stefano to announce the agreements.
"Iker Casillas and Raul have both agreed to stay with the club for the rest of their sporting lives," Calderon said.
"On this day - Valentine's day - Iker, Raul and Real can say they love each other, they need each other, and complement each other - and will commit for life.
"I am not going to speak about money, but I can say they will earn less than they deserve because the example they set for the young and the enthusiasm they transmit to the fans isn't quantifiable.
"You cannot put a value on it."
The pair helped Madrid to their trophy in four years last season, securing the Liga title in the last match at home to Mallorca to prevent arch rivals Barcelona from taking a third-straight crown.
Raul, who has in recent months been omitted from Luis Aragones's Spain squads, emerged as a 17-year-old prodigy in 1994 and has since won five league titles and three Champions League trophies.
Casillas made his debut in 1999 having worked his way up through the club from a young age and has become the undisputed number one and captain of Spain in the absence of his club-mate.
