    Madrid, Spain's capital city, has hidden gems everywhere you turn. It is a gorgeous city that is kept relatively clean. There is loads of stuff to do from museums to parks and the Spanish love to keep their nightlife lively, no matter what day of the week it is!!

    I think most people who have spent a lot of time in Spain are either Madrid people or Barcelona people. I am more partial to Barcelona. However, having said that Madrid is still an amazing city. Great museums, active night life and plenty of great restaurants. Like Barcelona it is also a great sport city with one of the world's best soccer teams Real Madrid.

    Madrid is steeped in history. The culture is rich in historical significance. There is an abundance of art museums. There are plenty of restaurants to try. Shopping is plentiful. It's one of the most walkable cities I've ever had the pleasure of visiting. The metro is straightforward. Be wary of beggars and pickpockets. Enjoy your time there. Salud!

    Madrid is beautiful. However, I prefer Barcelona, which I think is more lively and friendly. With that said though, Madrid is still a great place to see with many historic sites and buildings, places to shop, and a beautiful park. Not as many people speak English here as they do in Barcelona, but there are still a good amount that do. This city seems slower and more relaxing, especially in the daytime. At night, though, the city becomes alive!

    I only got to spend a day in Madrid, but I had a good time. I want to go back someday.

Description

Some Spaniards claim that Madrilenos look down on the rest of Spain. If they do, it’s not without reason. Boasting world-class art museums, two premier futbol teams, and the capital of Spain, Madrid truly is a phenomenal city. Major attractions include the “Golden Triangle of Art,” which contain famous works by Picasso, Dali, and Velazquez, the Parque del Buen Retiro, a park sometimes referred to as the “lungs of Madrid,” the Royal Palace, and the Plaza Mayor. Although the Plaza isn’t the biggest in Spain (that title goes to the plaza in Salamanca), it certainly is the most famous, having held numerous events throughout history from Inquisition trials to more recent headline concerts. Madrid has a highly efficient metro system that allows visitors to move around the city quickly, providing visitors with a good way to see the sights. Visitors also enjoy visiting Santiago Bernabeu stadium to watch the world famous Real Madrid football squad take the field. Once the sun goes down, there ... read more
is a multitude of things to do with the legendary Spanish nightlife at your fingertips. Food in Madrid is decidedly Spanish; that is, lots of jamon, bread, soup, fried fish, and potatoes. Hotels and hostels are abundant in Madrid, with some of the most famous lying in the Gran Via-Sol area of the city. Madrid is a bastion of Spanish tradition and culture, making it a fantastic place to visit.
