The “stop in your tracks” architecture of Madrid.

Is there something that always makes you stop on your tracks and take notice? It could be a stylish shoe, a perfectly tailored shirt or a bouquet of verdant flowers. What is it that makes you instantly say gleefully  – Ooh, Shiny!

For me, it’s grand architecture – not necessarily grand in stature but in the intricacy of work that was painstakingly put ages ago into the museums or palaces  or cathedrals or fountains. And so it’s no surprise that I was enthralled by the architecture in sunny Madrid.

Here are some of the pictures from the European capital city that are making me nostalgic about that “ooh shiny” feeling:
