Bienvenidos a Madrid!
Spain’s capital has a long and colorful history flowing through its streets and adorning its palace walls, but there is so much more to Madrid than just its bygone days.
Today, the bustling city plays host to world-class art and culture of all disciplines, from the classics to the cutting-edge. Documenting its past and displaying its present and future in dozens of art galleries and museums, it is impossible to avoid Madrid’s creative flair. Its innovative culinary scene consistently ranks in the top tier, providing a whole spectrum of traditional and delicious eats from haute cuisine to street food, keeping the hungry happy and the indecisive positively overwhelmed. Around every corner is another hidden gem or grand gallery, and when it all gets too much there are bountiful green spaces throughout the city for that recuperative siesta.
Historical beauty by day – party animal by night – Madrid is another city that never sleeps (only naps), with its vibrant nightlife offering countless opportunities for fun, frivolity, and unforgettable experiences. From basking in the lights of the central Gran Vía (a.k.a. “Spanish Broadway”) to navigating the bohemian backstreets of Malasaña, there is adventure to be found and a thriving alternative scene to be uncovered in the beating heart of Spanish culture.
