Get straight to the heart of Spain
Few cities in Europe can claim the warmth and hospitality, the beautiful historical structures, or the legendary cuisine that this massive Iberian city has to offer. The opportunities for discovery and entertainment are limitless and include everything from the city’s utterly massive churches and cathedrals to other gorgeous sites such as the Cybele Palace – now Madrid’s city hall.
With Madrid’s convenient transport systems, it is easy to visit the outlying towns with their own wonders and ruins, in particular El Escorial – one of Spain’s many former royal palaces and a fascinating example of historic Spanish architecture. Pay a visit to Madrid’s current royal palace – the home of the King and Queen – one of Europe’s finest 18th century structures.
The city’s many museums and art galleries demonstrate Spain’s vibrant and often turbulent history, as well as works by some of the world’s most prolific painters such as Salvador Dali and Picasso. Historical artifacts and royal relics such as arms and armor from all periods of Spain’s history, from the Roman Empire to the modern era, are abundant and fascinating for any history buff.
But perhaps above all, when visiting Madrid, we would be remiss not to suggest some of the finest cuisine on Earth. Madrid boasts no lack of restaurant venues, bars and clubs, any number of which are perfect for experiencing Spain at its finest, and letting loose for a while.
