Madrid was a short (2 day) stop on our way to Barcelona. I mainly wanted to go there because my favorite painting in the world is in the Prado, but I wound up REALLY loving this city and would love to go back for a longer stay.

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.

I never really looked at Madrid as a European "must".
It is not to be missed!
Immaculate, historical, great food and an even better nightlife.
I highly recommend!

Pull a mixing bowl out of the cabinet and add beautiful architecture and sculptures, alluring parks that are like a endless abyss of tranquility, shopping for everyone from Skylar Grey to Bérénice Marlohe, addicting tapas and tinto del veranos, and a innovative subway system. Mix them all together and you have the wonderful blissful city of Madrid. Truly like no other city, Madrid is the sanctuary of stress relief: parks of good relaxation, plazas for good socialization, and food and drinks to make you smile in between taking bites and talking.

Madrid is a compact capital city. That's not to say it doesn't seem like one - it's very stately - but it's considerably more walkable than London, Paris etc.
It's also very charming, with a more mature / less hedonistic atmosphere than that of Barcelona. Great architecture, great restaurants, lots of culture = well worth a trip.

Amazing time! I went during Easter time and it was great. If you're religious and would like to see traditional catholic ceremonies, this is the place. Their Easter traditions are beautiful and very moving.

Madrid is one of our favorite cities in Spain next to Barcelona. It is very walkable and clean. Our hotel was in the center of town so that we could get to a lot of sites by just using our feet. The shopping and restaurants are numerous and great. Make sure you try the hot chocolate con churros - this is now one of my favorite deserts.
