Why Go on a Tour of Madrid

The incomparable capital of Spain, cosmopolitan Madrid, is the very heart of the country, its energy, and fiery passion. Being one of the most beautiful European and world capitals, Madrid, for sure, cannot be called a quiet and boring place or be compared with any other European hub.

The metropolis boasts an impressive cultural and artistic heritage, exceptional cuisine and incredibly welcoming and cheerful people. Madrid combines modern business centers and medieval architecture, the best nightclubs in Europe, the largest outlets, beautiful romantic parks, rich museums, and beautiful authentic quarters rewarding the city with a unique flavor.

The appearance of Madrid reflects its history as a royal city and the center of the glorious country. Wide squares and monumental buildings built by monarchs, fancy cathedrals, and churches - Madrid is full of miracles to surprise you.

The center of the city is occupied by the famous Puerta del Sol, the beginning of the radial network of Spanish roads as well as the busiest place in Madrid. Moving a few blocks away, you get to the beautiful Plaza Mayor, framed by colonnades and served as a marketplace and bullfight venue during the Middle Ages.

Those keen on Baroque architecture can go to see the gorgeous Royal Palace, the official residence of Spanish Royal Family, vaguely reminiscent of Versailles. What is more, passionate Madrid is a perfect place for museum lovers who can start their Madrid exploration from the Golden Triangle of Art, consisting of three main museums: Prado Museum, Reina Sofía Museum, and Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, all located on the Paseo del Prado close to one another. Thus, whichever Spain travel package you choose, you just can’t miss discovering Madrid.
