Feng shui of Madrid
Madrid, Spain’s golden capital, is a city of beautiful boulevards and open, well-manicured parks such as the Buen Retiro. It’s famous for its rich treasuries of European art, including the Prado Museum’s works by Goya, Velázquez and other Spanish masters. Madrid is in the centre of Spain and the feng shui heart of Madrid is the portico-lined Plaza Mayor, and nearby is the baroque Royal Palace and Armory. Other important plazas are Gran Via, Plaza de la Cruz Verde and Plaza de Oriente. Madrid is also the largest city in Spain before Barcelona. Let’s examine how feng shui of Madrid compares to Barcelona and other Spanish cities.

The heart of Spain
Madrid was selected as Spain’s capital in 1561 because of Madrid’s centrality to embody the central power of the Crown. Puerta del Sol plaza, in the heart of Madrid, stands as Madrid’s legendary symbol — a sculpted bear under a strawberry tree (madroño) and is also a signpost pointing in all directions to various of Spain’s provincial capitals. Good feng shui positioning.

High views
Madrid is the highest capital in Europe and offers some spectacular views. If you stay in Hotel Puerta America in Madrid, you’ll enjoy the nicest views of the city as well as top-down views of the pavements through the hotel’s glass balcony. This 13th floor, the designer hotel was designed by 19 different architects and designers such as Teresa Sapey, Sir Norman Foster, Eva Castro and Holgar Kehne, Ron Arad, Jean Nouvel and Zaha Hadid. Or visit Mirador Madrid at Palacio de Cibeles which offers spectacular views of Madrid as well.

Water element
Although Madrid is not by the sea it has a river, Manzanares, it’s full of greenery and water features. Water is very important in feng shui and cities and towns by the sea or with rivers thrive more than the ones that have a lack of water element. Retiro Park has a lake in the middle.

Air element
The air quality has improved dramatically in the past years which makes Madrid more walkable.

Fire element
Madrid, fortunately, is the sunniest city in Europe.

Wood element
Retiro Park is exactly the same size as Hyde Park in London which is about 350 acres and has 15 000 trees and over 4000 rose bushes which make it very fractal indeed. At its centre, there is a lake – perfect for rowing. Retiro Park was originally, a private retreat for the Spanish Royal family.

The heart of Madrid
The Plaza Mayor is the most important gathering place in Madrid. The open cobblestone plaza is a pedestrian area, encompassed by cafés and restaurants shaded by its arcades. Walking here or sitting in cafes is a very popular activity to do in Madrid at night or any time of the day, for both tourists and Madrileños.

Lots of sunshine and barrios contribute to buzzing social life and create a fun-loving glow.

Energy flow in Madrid
Most of Madrid is based on a grid-like layout which makes the energy flow easy to predict and follow. Also, grid-like layouts represent the earth element. The views of mountains and the energy of mountains enhance the element of earth.

People create the chi (spirit) of the place and the best way to feel the spirit of Madrid is to explore it on foot – for example, the streets in La Latina or the Mercado de San Fernando.

To get to Madrid from the airport, take the metro which is quicker and cheaper than a taxi. You may also arrive at the main train station in Madrid is called Atocha which has nice plants.

Predecessor law
Madrid was originally called Mayrit and was founded by the emir Muhammad at the end of the IX century. It was under the Arab occupation of the Iberian Peninsula but then Madrid gained significance since initially the main city in the Spanish plain had been Toledo. Madrid has the largest royal palace and the oldest restaurant in the world. Spanish inquisition was very active in Madrid with almost daily public executions.

Values of Spaniards
Sun, contentment, security in nature offer Spaniards basic happiness. And life in Spain is full of siestas so to seek work-life balance, Spaniards practise the tradition of siesta. Life-work balance is well established here.

Spain is 60% Catholic and the presence of churches reminds us about the spiritual and religious nature of Spaniards.

The citizens of Madrid are called Madrileños or Gatos which translates as ‘cats’.

Art in Madrid
The art scene can reveal the creative nature of a place. Art belongs to the fire element in the five element theory. Visit the Prado Museum (free entrance in late afternoons to see 7600 paintings, 1000 sculptures and 8200 drawings), and you’ll discover an extensive collection of works by Goya, El Greco, Velázquez, Rubens and others as well as Bosch below. Reina Sofia Museum houses Guernica by Picasso as well as Salvadore Dali’s work.

Food element
For your sweet tooth, La Violeta offers violet candies. Obviously, ham carving has been mastered in Spain (it takes about one hour and a half to carve a whole ham leg) and you can’t escape seeing it everywhere. For dinks, I suggest vermouth (with complimentary tapas) which can be found in Vermoutharias.

Ponzaning
“#Ponzaning” is a word and popular hashtag coined by Karla Sarti, a Mexican fashion and food writer who now lives in Madrid, which refers to drinking and dining up and down Calle Ponzano. Different areas of Madrid attract people for pub-crawls and tapas-trawls — the boozy buffet of tavernas along Cava Baja, the ring of terraces around Plaza Olavide.
