With the Prado, the historic architecture and squares, the ham, the tappas and hot chocolate, the ham, and extensive pedestrian zones, Madrid is truly a top destination. Did I mention they have ham?

Gayle and Madrid go way back. She was first here as a Nanny during the last days of Franco. Ten years ago, she took here son here and last month you brought me along. I previously visited Madrid for a day back in the early 1980s while on a business trip and onwards (via Train) to Zaragoza.
Gayle and I found Madrid is very cosmopolitan, fun, and relaxed. In Canadian Terms, Madrid is Toronto (including the superiority complex) and Barcelona is Montreal. I think of them as 2 cities in the same Country, but separated by different Nations, Cultures, and War. Both are great places to be, even though I did get a few comments about my FC Barcelona jersey.
We especially enjoyed Madrid when we were here for Día de Hispania and all the people in their patriotic presense. We also liked out relaxing walk through Retiro Park, gazing at the architecture, hanging out at the Plaza Mayor, seeing Guernica at the Reina Sofia, enjoying a glass of wine at Mercado San Miguel, and just walking around here and there.

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.

This city is super cosmopolitan, with easy peasy public transport. Definitely try to see some flamenco while you are there. The Prado is a world class art museum, not to be missed.

Easy to navigate with their excellent subways, beautiful green space, lots of things to see and do (many of them free), very fun and friendly locals all combined to make this city at least of 4 star. Will return to see it it merits even more.

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!
