About Madrid City Centre
Madrid has a passion and zest for life that makes it one of the most exciting cities in the world. Dripping with great art, throbbing with energy, and alive with great music, food, and energy, Madrid is easy to fall in love with. It enjoys a legacy built by generations of Spanish royals, who cultivated artists from Goya and Velázquez to Picasso and Dalí. Start your tour of Madrid's masterpieces at the Museo del Prado, Centro de Arte Reina SofÃa and Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza.
Architecturally, Madrid may not have an Eiffel Tower or a Duomo, but its streets are lined with a veritable history lesson of buildings, which provide a magnificent setting for daily life, with medieval mansions and regal palaces book-ended by cutting-edge architecture and soaring spires. Sit on a sunny café terrace and enjoy the view.
And if you'd like a break from the sunshine and the buzzing city streets, you can unwind in one of the many green spaces. Of all European cities, Madrid has the highest concentration of trees and green areas. Nowhere in the city are you more than a 15-minute walk from a park.
