Picalagartos - Las 5 mejores azoteas de Madrid

Hotels are the great guests of many of the most chic rooftops in the city, and for this reason, we cannot stop talking about one of the coolest news of the last year: Picalagartos, another space gastronomic where you can enjoy a sunset in the capital without complicating your life, and where the NH Collection Gran Vía hotel is also located.

In the heart of the city, Picalagartos is a restaurant that nods to the most classic Madrid of the 50s through its design, materials and shapes. It is located on the eighth floor of the building and offers a panoramic view of the city that your Instagram profile will not be able to resist. Picalagartos has an exquisite variety of dishes prepared by prestigious chefs with the best raw materials. Manuel Berganza is one of them, and let me tell you that you will lick your fingers with his tasting menu. He is a young chef whose young age has not stopped him. He has worked in Mexico, Russia, Switzerland, Los Angeles and New York, where his role in the kitchen has led to large restaurants in these cities achieving a Michelin star thanks to his know-how.

Its rooftop is full of sofas that give the place a relaxed air despite its sophistication. You will be very comfortable having a drink on its terrace. But be careful! The intense hours of sunshine are reserved for the bravest. Arrive mid-afternoon and the sun won't ruin your plan.

So, you know! If you have met your co-workers and want to offer them a place full of charm and personality, Picalagartos gives you the opportunity to take the credit this Friday afternoon.

But never forget to apply your trusty sunscreen when your plans require lots of sun and good weather. It is essential to protect our skin in the same way as our vision from solar radiation and its effects.

In addition, its panoramic views of the urban center of the city are a true luxury, and also one of the most photographed in all of Madrid.
