    Parque del Buen Retiro

    Think Central park with a spanish vibe. Lots of outdoor cafes, shady areas to take a nap, or even rent a row boat and float around the main pond in the center of the park.

    Palacio Real

    110 reviews

    The royal palace of Spain is more of an Enlightenment Era structure reflecting the pretensions of modern Spain. Toledo was the medieval capital of the country and is more reminiscent of Spain's past. The great square in front of the royal palace is also bordered by a cathedral. It's a good place to sit and admire the architecture.

    Gran Vía

    48 reviews

    A street that's always buzzing and where sleep is not an option. The Madrilenian's favourite place to be. Songs, poems, novels and even zarzuelas have been devoted to it. Even though it's about to turn one hundred, it doesn't look it! It's such a vital place that the passing of time seems to have no effect on this avenue. On ...

    Plaza de Santa Ana

    27 reviews

    Young Madrid comes alive in this plaza. It has great energy and is full of cafes and bars. The focal point is the "Me" Hotel by Melia that dominates with its neon purple exterior that is so striking. Visit Plaza Santa Ana after midnight when it really comes alive.
