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.

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?

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!!

When you think of Madrid you might first think of sunshine, sangria, and bullfights, but spend a few hours here and you'll quickly discover there's a whole lot more to be seen and sampled. The city is flat out beautiful, historic, and this forever-famous capital city is pulsing with perhaps more life and excitement than anywhere else. When is the best time to visit? Good question. Hands down Spring or Fall...my preference is fall; I don't know why but Madrid is just unbeatable when it comes to sweater weather. Just remember that during July and August many of the locals flee for the coast to avoid the oppressive heat (and you should probably do the same).

La amo! The best city in Europe to live - work - make friends!
The people are really open and easy going -mainly if you speak Spanish, even a few words- the know how to party and they will make you feel like home from the very first moment!
The city itself is a small miracle: from cheap-international neighbourhoods to super elegant ones, all with the air of a latin capital city!
