Madrid is a vibrant city. Its unique mix, where the past blends with modernity, make this an unforgettable destination. Its incredible cultural offering, joined with its passion for soccer and the cuisines, the joy of the madrileños, the readiness to celebrate, and the unique urban landscaping make Madrid a dream location for starting any adventure.
There is so much art in Madrid that one visit isn’t enough to see it all. Museums such as the Prado, Thyssen-Bornemisza and the Reina Sofía safeguard authentic treasures that you should visit.
Soccer is one of the city’s great symbols, so one recommendation for your visit is to take in a game with one of the three historic teams in Madrid.
Spain is synonymous with good wine. So on your trip, don’t miss the chance to tour the more than 20 vineyards in the region. Cheers!
Didn’t make it to Andalucia, but want to take in a flamenco show? There are “tablaos” (flamenco halls) in Madrid, too, like the Corral de la Morería, where you can marvel at this art.
The Spanish capital is an unmissable city for a party. Dress to impress and hit one of the areas where the bars, pubs and clubs of the city are concentrated. If what you want is to dance ‘til you drop, you should head to Huertas; if you’re looking for something more bohemian and alternative, Malasaña is the place for you; for those looking for something a little more exclusive, on Avenida de Brasil you can find a place to your taste; and if you’d rather mix with locals, Chueca or Argüelles-Moncloa are the places to get the job done.
This cranny of Madrid is always packed with locals and tourists, but that’s no reason to knock it off your list of places to visit. Actually, it’s one of the city’s must-dos if you’re in town on a Sunday. But what’s so special about this place? Well, El Rastro is a giant flea market where more than 1,000 vendors offer everything from handicrafts and secondhand clothes to authentic antiques. Finish off a visit to the market with tapas in one of the neighborhood bars.
Get your walking shoes on for this street, Madrid’s best known, and enjoy a day of shopping, cinema and cuisine. Along the road that connects downtown with the northeast of the city you will find the best fashion shops, renowned cafes and cinemas that evoke the golden age when the street was called "Madrid's Broadway". This street is always full of people, and has the ambiance to help you catch the local spirit.
In a little under a kilometer you will find more art than you ever expected to see in your entire life. This concentration of beauty is because the three most notable museums in the city, and maybe in the world, are all in the same area: the Prado, Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum and the Reina Sofía. There you can see live and in the flesh such jewels as Picasso’s “Guernica”, Velázquez’s “Las Meninas”, and Goya’s “The Third of May, 1808”, among others. A walk through human history to tickle the senses.
It’s hard to pick just one dish to highlight in a city that may well be the world’s gastronomy capital. But there is a delicacy that stands out for its simplicity, practicality and, above all, for how delicious it is. These are patatas bravas, a dish to be enjoyed at any time: as an appetizer, snack, or to get the party started. This tapa consists of fried or baked potatoes with a spicy chili sauce that varies from place to place, so each time you try it, it’s a new experience.
This discreet restaurant in Madrid boasts of a particular record. It is no more and no less than the restaurant that holds the Guiness world record as the oldest in the world. Founded in 1925 as a guesthouse, in its time it marked the city limits, but today is located downtown. Spanish cuisine is on the offer there, and it is often listed as one of the must-dos for anyone visiting the city.
This chef has revolutionized the cuisine of Madrid, and of Spain in general, with a complex and very particular vision. Muñoz has the honor of being the creator and chef of one of the few Spanish restaurants (and the only one in Madrid) with three Michelin stars. His culinary proposal is difficult to define as it approximates art, to the point that the dishes are served on canvas. If you want to visit his restaurant, best bet is to make a reservation well ahead of time, and get ready for an out-of-the-ordinary experience.
When summer heats up, the aroma of sangría floods the streets. If you try it in Madrid, you’ll never want to forget it. Learn to make it at home:
A day’s not enough, and neither is a week. You need a fortnight to try, experience and learn everything about the impressive gastronomic offerings of the Spanish capital. This is why, every year, Gastrofestival Madrid takes place, an event where food is not only the star, but also the center of every possible approach to it: from cinema to literature, on to art and fashion. More than 400 establishments and 300 activities comprise the unique offering that you’ll experience when you visit this festival.
