Follow Hemingway’s Footsteps Through Spain

By Samantha Coles

This year is the 120th anniversary of Ernest Hemingway’s birth, and this new tour in Madrid studies the people and places that inspired the legendary writer. He returned to the city many times throughout his life, and it is the setting for a number of his novels and short stories including The Capital of the World, The Sun Also Rises and Death in the Afternoon.

Accompanied by a local Hemingway aficionado, discover the stories behind his most infamous haunts, including Cervecería Alemana, a German beerhouse that has remained nearly unchanged since he frequented it; Hemingway’s barbershop (where, incredibly, his original barber still works); Sobrino de Botín, the oldest restaurant in the world, which charmed not only Hemingway but also the characters in his novels; and Casa Salvador, practically a time machine to 1950s Madrid and a Hemingway favorite thanks to its oxtail stew.

End in the Museo Chicote bar to meet the son of one of the writer’s oldest friends, Daily Telegraph correspondent Henry Buckley, and hear tales of what it was like to grow up with Hemingway as a regular houseguest.
