Madrid is one of Europe’s great cities, a place of beautiful parks, stunning architecture and world-class art.
From the ornate Royal Palace to the grandiose Plaza Mayor, the city is studded with historical treasures.

But Madrid is also a city of fashion, nightlife and contemporary culture, with a buzzing restaurant and bar scene and a lively social life. Spend a day people-watching in the Retiro Park, enjoy a flamenco show in the old quarters or simply wander the streets admiring the beautiful buildings – Madrid is a city that never fails to impress.
