Madrid Pocket Guide

Images Of Madrid

Located right in the centre of Spain, Madrid is a city that will suit those who like to rise early and see as much as they can in a day as well as those more accustomed to the night owl lifestyle. Art lovers won't know where to go with three of Europe's best art galleries located within five minutes walk of each other, while the Spanish capital also has one of the world's most ornate palaces. After dark, once businesses close and the working Madrileños begin their trek home, another breed of Madrileños begin their trek into the city to keep Madrid's numerous tapas restaurants, bars and clubs full until the early hours of the morning.

    Spectacular city in the Iberian Peninsula

    An amazing city, Didn't expect to enjoy it and has been one of my absolute favourites. Beautiful and vibrant and an endless amount of things to do.

    Insider Tip:The Museo de Jamón is delicious and very cheap. I wish I found it earlier.

    Madrid is awesome! Good food, cheap prices! Easy to get to know local people (better if you speak the language) and a lot, but a lot of places to walk around, stop in a Tapas Bar in one of the many squares in town, have a cana and just enjoy life!
