Madrid

Madrid is the third crowded community of the country, after Catalonia and Andalusia. The population of Madrid is mainly centred in its metropolitan region. Liberal and sociable in nature, the city is full of mansions and art galleries. The growth and wood ownership of this autonomous community is represented in a very funny way – by erecting a statue of a bear, standing on its hint legs and trying to eat berries from the madrono tree. One of the wackiest festivals of this community is La Endiablada, as people dress as devils and ghosts and have a mouth full of candies. They also make sounds like zombies, and it is definitely a different experience for tourists.
