Accommodation & places to visit in Madrid

Visitors to Madrid won’t want to miss the Paseo del Arte, or the art museums located along it. The most famous of Madrid’s art museums are the Museo Thyssen Bornemisza, with its overview of Western art, the Museo Reina Sofía, mostly housing modern art, and the Museo del Prado. The Paseo del Arte lies to the east of Puerto del Sol, the heart of Madrid.

The Plaza de la Villa and the Casa de la Villa are excellent examples of the architecture visitors will want to take in. Showcasing buildings mostly from the 15th to 17th century, it is a charming area to be enjoyed by guests to Madrid. The Palacio Real, with its 2,800 rooms, sets a standard for extravagance. The famous Teatro Real, opened in 1850 as an opera house, with its surrounding Plaza de Oriente, is another spot visitors won’t want to miss. For the shopper, a day spent in the flea market in El Rastro, with its bustle of activity and overpriced wares, is an experience that won’t soon be forgotten. To break up the busy day, shoppers could lunch at one of the many cafés at Plaza Mayor, one of Europe's grandest squares. Known for its nightlife, which really heats up on the weekend, Madrid is the place for travelers to have a good time, Spanish style. The main nightlife scene not to be missed is in Plaza Santa Ana.
