In addition to its well-known museums, its lively avenues with all kinds of shops, its restaurants serving world cuisine and its incomparable nightlife, Madrid surprises with quiet historic corners full of charm in which to stroll, with Spanish centuries-old traditional family taverns.
With neighbourhoods of all styles and cultural centres that are an alternative to the more touristic circuits. Madrid has an authenticity that is hard to match. It is hospitable and diverse. Madrid is, without a doubt, one of the most multicultural cities in Spain.
Leisure and Culture
Those who look for cultural offerings will find some of the most important museums in the world, such as thePrado, the Reina Sofía and the Thyssen. However, don’t lose sight of other smaller, charming museums, such as the Sorolla Museum or cultural centres such as Matadero or Conde Duque, which continually present innovative exhibitions, concerts, guided tours, etc.
Walking around Madrid means coming across emblematic places such as its impressive Royal Palace, its Plaza Mayor with more than 400 years of history, its crowded Puerta del Sol, its well-known Gran Vía street full of shops or the four tallest towers in Spain. Each of its neighbourhoods offers a different experience: La Latina is ideal for tapas, Las Letras is the perfect mix between literature and gastronomy…
When it comes to eating, Madrid has two faces, each more appetising than the other. On the one hand, there are traditional taverns where you can discover the “traditional” atmosphere and why “going out for tapas” is so much fun. On the other hand, avant-garde restaurants such as DiverXO and traditional markets converted into new gourmet spaces, such as San Miguel.
A City with plenty to Do
At sunset, there are amazing viewpoints with unique sunsets, such as the Debod Temple or the terrace of the Círculo de Bellas Artes. At the end of the day, Madrid’s nights are legendary and the venues offer live shows, atmospheres of all kinds and music until dawn.
