Madrid, capital of Spain, is an aristocratic city with a unique lifestyle that cannot be missed. Near the Plaza Mayor, in the so-called “aristocratic center,” stands the stunning Palacio Real, and next to it, the Plaza de Oriente, the Opera Theater, and the modern Almudena Cathedral.
Art and culture occupy a prominent place in Madrid’s agenda. The capital has more than sixty museums, spanning the entire range of human knowledge, such as the Prado Museum, the Thyseen-Bornemisza Museum, the Reina Sofía National Art Center, among others.
But, if there is anything that characterizes Madrid, it is the deep and contagious passion for life that stems from the friendly nature of its people. Concerts, ballets, exhibits, select theater listings, its bars and taverns, and the best Spanish gastronomical selection… these are just some of the Madrid’s leisure options. Its lively nightlife is also an important feature of Spain’s capital city due to the variety and great atmosphere of its bars, pubs, clubs and flamenco tablaos, among others.
