Madrid, Spain is a unique city and at an altitude of 2100 feet it may be one of Europe’s highest capital cities. Madrid is not only the capital of Spain, but it is also the world’s capital of bullfighting. Shop at some of Europe’s finest shops, view world class art galleries, party all night or watch a traditional Flamenco dance. You can’t go wrong when you travel to Madrid.


1. Puerta Del Sol

Start your trip to Madrid here. The Puerta Del Sol is the center of it all. This is where all of the radial highways begin. In the central area of Puerta Del Sol you will find the famous statue of a bear standing against a tree which is based on Madrid’s coat of arms.


2. Bullfights

You cannot go to Spain without seeing a bullfight. Madrid is the home of bullfighting so if you have never seen a bullfight and want to, this is the place to see it. Some of the best Spanish bullfights are in Madrid. The bullfighting season usually goes from March to October.


3. Palacio Real

The Royal Palace is a beautiful and a very important place in Madrid. Unless there is official business taking place, the Royal Palace is open to the public. You will have to pay an entrance fee, but it is well worth it. Make sure to visit the beautiful formal gardens while you’re there.


4. Prado Museum

The Prado Museum is one of the most important museums in the world and without a doubt the pride of Madrid. In this museum you will find the world’s greatest collection of Spanish paintings. If you are interested in art this is a must to see.


5. Plaza Mayor

The Plaza Mayor is a marvelous historical site to see. In the center of the square stands the statue of Philip III on horseback. Access to the square is through one of nine arches and only foot traffic is allowed in the square.


6. Parque Del Buen Retiro

This massive park has a central lake, statues, many fountains, and pleasant walkways. It is a relaxing place to get away from the city during the week and meditate or relax for a while. Go to the lake and hire yourself a boat and float on the lake or enjoy some of the street entertainers that frequent the park.


7. The Gran Via

A must see street if you love architecture. Many different styles of buildings are seen on this street and are very well preserved.


8. Puerta De Alcala

This is the most important and longest street in Madrid. It is found in the center of the Plaza de la Independencia on Calle de Alcala.


9. Estacion De Atocha

One of two main railways in Madrid, the Estacion de Atocha has beautiful tropical garden that grace the main hall. You will come here to catch all of the national, high-speed trains.


10. Plaza Colon

Several monuments of Columbus and his men dating back to 1885 are found here. In the center of the square are The Gardens of Discovery. Underneath the square is the Cultural Center. In the center is a theater, concert hall and exhibition rooms. The center is hidden from view by a wall of water.


There are many other wonderful things to see in Madrid, but these are some of my favorites.


Have a Great Trip!
