General information

Madrid is located in the heart of the peninsula and right in the centre of the Castillian plain, 646 meters above sea level. Due to its great geographical location, the city became Spain’s capital in 1561. In fact, all roads in Spain lead to Madrid so you can find the best products that the country has to offer. A cosmopolitan city, a business centre, headquarters for the Public Administration, Government, Spanish Parliament and the home of the Spanish Royal Family, Madrid plays a major role in the banking and industrial sectors.

It is a city rich in history and culture and its people are known for being friendly and open towards visitors. Art and culture are central to Madrid life. The city has 73 museums that cover all fields of human knowledge. Of these, the most important are the Prado Museum, one of the world's greatest art galleries, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, and the Reina Sofía National Art Centre.

Indeed, Madrid is a meat-lover's paradise, so you can try local favorites such as cocido and roasted meats. And of course there are always plenty of options when it comes to tapas bars. Indeed, Madrid's happening nightlife is another major attraction. Its pubs, bars, discos and flamenco clubs have a tremendous atmosphere, while by day there are traditional verbenas (open-air dances), popular festivals or the San Isidro bullfighting festival - rated as the world's most important. Visitors and residents alike can enjoy the sun, go for walks, go rowing or feed the squirrels in Madrid's large, impeccable parks and gardens.
