According to the Madrid City Hall, El Ayuntamiento de Madrid the Spanish capital has 9,139 streets.
Come and wander a handful of them with me and Spain travel consultant, Karen Rosenblum. No, we don't walk all 9,139 of them, but on our wander around the Spanish capital between us we compile a list of our top 12 favourite streets.
We chose the them based on their quirky character, physical beauty, interesting history and curious and amusing stories behind them. (Think famous writers peeing in dooways...!)
