ABOUT MADRID

Madrid, cheerful and awake at all hours, is famous for being an open city where people of all kinds and from all places mix.

 

In addition to its famous museums, its lively avenues with all kinds of stores, its world cuisine restaurants or its incomparable nightlife, Madrid surprises with quiet historic corners full of charm to stroll through, with centuries-old traditional family taverns where friends meet for a drink, with neighborhoods of all styles and with alternative cultural centers to the most tourist circuits. Madrid has an authenticity that is hard to match. It is hospitable and diverse. Madrid is undoubtedly one of the most interesting cities in Europe.

Culture and leisure at all times

Los que vayan en busca de oferta cultural, se encontrarán con algunos de los museos más importantes del mundo como el del Prado, el Reina Sofía o el Thyssen. Sin embargo, no hay que perder de vista otros más pequeños, llenos de encanto, como el Museo Sorolla o centros culturales como Matadero o Conde Duque que continuamente presentan exposiciones innovadoras, conciertos, visitas guiadas…Caminar por Madrid significa encontrarse con landmarks such as its impressive Royal Palace, its Plaza Mayor with more than 400 years of history, its lively Puerta del Sol, its famous Gran Vía street full of stores or the four tallest towers in Spain. Each of its neighborhoods offers a different experience: La Latina is ideal for tapas, Las Letras is the perfect blend of literature and gastronomy... But Madrid also means relaxing in huge green spaces such as the Retiro Park (which, along with the Paseo del Prado and its surroundings, has been declared a World Heritage Site) and in other lesser-known but very charming places such as El Capricho.

Capital of gastronomy, fashion and nightlife

When it comes to eating, Madrid has two faces, each one more appealing than the other. On the one hand, there are traditional taverns where you can discover what a "castizo" atmosphere is all about and why it is so important. "go for a drink" is so much fun. On the other hand, avant-garde restaurants like DiverXO and traditional markets converted into new gourmet spaces like San Miguel, which have become authentic gastronomic temples. In Madrid, any time seems to be a good time to enjoy a lively, urban atmosphere. For example, at the increasingly famous weekend brunches at terraces indoors in glass, in courtyards, at ground level.... fashionistas encontrarán todo tipo de propuestas como las tiendas de lujo de la Milla de Oro, locales vintage en barrios como Fuencarral, nuevos mercados de diseño como el de Motores  y comercios de artesanía o librerías que tienen más de cien años. Al atardecer, hay viewpoints that surprise with unique sunsets like the Templo de Debod or the terrace of the Círculo de Bellas Artes. And at the end of the day... Madrid's nights are legendary and the locals offer live shows, all kinds of atmospheres, music until dawn... Madrid has a beauty of its own. Madrid stimulates and inspires. Madrid, you have to live it.
