Summer has arrived late in Madrid but the heat has come along strongly. What better way to deal with it than with one of the best activities you can enjoy in the Spanish capital during summer: Veranos de la Villa (Summers of the Village), a festival which will take place during July and August, turning the city into one big party for all ages.
