when to go
Summer should be avoided due to temperatures and the month of December to avoid agglomerations.
Day, afternoon and night the capital of Spain falls in love with the traveller with its thousand corners to discover. It’s one of those places you shouldn’t visit, you should live. Why? Because it is the best way to pierce its fine skin and join its liturgies, its reeds and tapas, its street life and its noisy terraces. But, beyond the hedonism of sidewalk, Madrid has magical neighborhoods such as the Letters, Malasaña or the Madrid of the Austrias. And also monuments such as the Royal Palace, the Plaza Mayor or the iconic Puerta del Sol.
In addition, this city is a must for every cultural traveller, from the one who enjoys the most classic paintings in the essential Prado Museum to the one who seeks avant-garde and contemporary in the Thyssen or the Reina Sofía. All this without forgetting new architectural icons such as the park of Madrid Río, the building of the Caixa Forum or the Four Towers, a complex that not only goes to work.
