Essential experiences in Madrid | What places to visit?
Few European cities compare with Madrid in terms of the characteristics that make it a tourist destination of such a high standard. But this city combines many of them, including a broad cultural offering—one of the most comprehensive anywhere in the continent—and an enviable and varied cuisine based on typical dishes from Madrid and other regions, available at its many restaurants, some of the best in Spain. Madrid also has an extensive hotel catalogue, for those looking for central hotel accommodation or a holiday apartment. Another of the city’s major assets is its weather, making it an all-year-round destination.
To talk of Madrid is to talk of the capital of Spain and its glorious history, which can be admired in hundreds of monuments, buildings and museums located mainly around the centre. Every step visitors take around the centre of the city is an opportunity to breathe in some of the country’s history. It is an ideal destination for tourists looking for good food and fun, but who also have an interest in cultural activities, from the extensive collections of art to a broad range of theatre shows, musicals, opera or cinema. Madrid offers a unique experience and opportunity to enjoy a few days in a modern city but one with a long and consolidated history and tradition.
