Are you in one of our Madrid apartment and are you looking for a good restaurant? We recommend you "Casa Alberto" restaurant. A bar has stood on this site since 1614 and it is thought that Miguel de Cervantes, the most famous Spanish author of  all of them , wrote parts of his works here. The current institution is a relative newcomer, having been founded in 1827, but as it has changed little since then, the place now resembles a living museum with all sorts of interesting posters, paintings and other objects adorning the walls.  Casa Alberto offers quality tapas and a good range of wines, particularly those from Rioja.

Combining analogue photography with the most cutting-edge digital technology, Testino reveals the process and implications involved in the process of removing one’s clothes to become naked. The women in his photographs are first shown in all their glamour as top models and celebrities wearing haute couture dresses, then in their naked beauty.
