Madrid is gifted with a whole host of exciting cultural and historic attractions including museums, art galleries and historical buildings such as the Palacio Real Palace. When it comes to nightlife Madrid has much to offer including theatre, opera and dance for those who have an active interest in the arts.

The many excellent restaurants, bars and nightclubs in Madrid cater for the visitor more interest in fun than finery. Madrid houses several zoos and theme parks, making it a great city for families. Culturally Madrid is considered to be exceptional, from its vibrant Flamenco scene to its impeccably maintained parks and open spaces. Madrid is the capital of Spain, located in the center of the Iberian peninsula in the Castilian plain. Because Madrid is a landlocked city, it has a very dry climate, and summers can see temperatures of over 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

Madrid is a truly “Spanish” city with a strong cultural identity and rich traditions. Home of flamenco dancing and bullfighting, Madrid keeps its history alive while playing an important role within modern Europe.

 

Madrid travel inforamtion


A stroll through the city center reveals the several “faces” of Madrid in its variety of architectural styles: Bourbon, Neo-Classical, Francoesque, Baroque, Art Deco, and Modernist, to name a few. The Plaza Mayor, at the heart of Old Madrid, is especially grand with its ornate balconies, dormer windows, and intricate frescoes that grace the facades of the surrounding buildings. In the past, Madrid's most famous square has hosted pageants, bullfights, and even public executions. Today, the Plaza Mayor is home to outdoor cafés, tapas bars, and shops.
