I use the Rough Guides Map

My map of Lisbon after three trips that I have lost track how many times I have folded, used in the rain, have my notes written on the map, I can still use today as the condition of the map is like the day I first bought it.

Beside the bus and subways lines on the map it has more importantly the side streets with their "names!" which a lot of travel maps do not even both showing. This means I can get off the tourist path and not be lost.

For Barcelona my Rough Guide map was a big help when walking around the Camp Nou, the surrounding area and my visit to the Barcelona cemetery.

We got the Crumpled City Madrid map and it's perfect. It's a great map for those who basically know their way around the city (and don't necessarily want to lug around a guidebook), but may still need the occasional directions to navigate the side streets.
Thanks for the suggestion!

the best maps are German because they cover all the way to Ciudad Lineal lol!!
But I forgot their names, long time don't use ::)
the metro map is handy and easy pocket, it is not infinite but will last quite a few days of use.
cheers
