    Plaza Mayor

    128 reviews

    Plaza Mayor was, to me, the most impressive square in Madrid. The plaza is essentially the courtyard of a red palace where several different streets come together. From the center point you can look through the archways and see down each street for quite a ways.

    Parque del Buen Retiro

    101 reviews

    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 now largely ceremonial home of the Spanish Monarchy. Free at certain points of the week to EU passport holders. Would have been better if it had come with a plan so that you had an idea what you were looking at.

    Market of San Miguel

    80 reviews

    This is one high end market or food court. They have a little of everything here although it's not as big as the Boqueria in Barcelona, the Mercado de San Miguel does have some amazing offerings. For one at lunch, I had the absolute BEST artisan mozzarella in my life here! It was buttery, creamy, pillowy, and mild at the ...

    Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía

    63 reviews

    This is an excellent modern art museum which is particularly strong in Spanish artists including Picasso, Gris, Miro and Dali among the most famous names. The building itself was originally a hospital but has been modernized with glass elevator shafts and a glass third level terrace.

    Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza

    30 reviews

    I live in Madrid since a couple of years and have visited all three museums of the Golden Triangle of Art (a couple of times) and love all three of them but the Thyssen-Bornemisza is my personal favorite because it has a bit of all art styles and is in chronological order. And it has the most impressionism paintings of ...

    Temple of Debod

    32 reviews

    An Egyptian sanctuary in Madrid. Even in a cosmopolitan city like Madrid we can still be surprised by what is hidden in the Cuartel de la Montaña park: the Temple of Debod, a monument that is over two thousand years old, which was brought to Spain from Egypt, stone by stone and carefully reconstructed in the capital. Beautiful place from ...

    Plaza de Santa Ana

    27 reviews

    Plazas are awesome and I don't know why we don't have more in the U.S. (but we should). Check out this plaza near Puerta del Sol for drinks or even dinner. It's one of the prettiest in Madrid and has great bars and restaurants in every direction. Another option for the evening is to make like the locals and wait ...

    Real Jardín Botánico

    27 reviews

    A lovely garden that sits just beside the Prado museum. Not much different from any other garden you may visit - a short stop while visiting Madrid.

    Plaza de Toros de las Ventas

    22 reviews

    Home to Madrid's world-famous bullfights, the ring and stadium are open for daily tours and you can purchase tickets for the fights at the ticket desk. Even if watching one of these isn't your thing, stop by for a quick picture and a caña at a nearby bar. Get off at metro ventas.

    Plaza de Colón

    26 reviews

    Not as cozy as Plaza Mayor. Very busy with people seeming to have a destination in mind (fairly unusual for Spain), not lined with touristy bars/restaurants/shops. I saw a football game here on a big projector screen and it was great!
