The beautiful skies of Madrid are called "Velázquez" after them. The meteorologists say that Madrid is one of the European cities with the largest number of days of clear skies per year. Madrid springs have the sunshine and the clear air that smells like presssed cistus. The autumn sky is transparent , 'velázquezenos' with lukewarm air. King Philip 3, born in Madrid, made it the definite capital of Spain since 1606, from which sprung Don Quixote to the whole world. Just one year earlier his first press edition of Juan de la Cuesta was released in Madrid's Atocha Street. Madrid has a small river, the Manzanares, with little water, lots of great literature and historical bridges.
