Madrid is full of stunning parks where you can take a break from the sun and cool down. In the city centre, Retiro park is an immense green space featuring the Crystal and Velázquez Palaces. Its rose garden and many lawns make it one of the most extraordinary parks in the city. Right next to the park, the botanic gardens offer an idyllic conclusion to your promenade.

Theatre, opera, gigs… Throughout the year, Madrid offers a wide range of entertainment. And of course, bullfighting festivals are in the schedule, notably the famous Feria de la Comunidad and the Feria de San Isidro.

People eat a lot of tapasin Madrid. In the evening, locals head to tapas bars to have a relaxed bite to eat with friends. But if you prefer a sit-down meal, you can also get soups, casseroles and local dishes made from offal. Pastries and fried desserts are also local favourites.

To see / do

Culture and history

In the former royal residence

In the former royal residence

The Royal Palace is one of Madrid’s greatest treasures.  The palace is open to the public and you can take a tour of its luxurious rooms. Constructed in the 18th century, it opens a window into the history of Spain. Take a look at the Throne Room, Royal Kitchens, King Charles III Apartments and even the Painting Gallery. Why not take a detour through the Sabatini Gardens and the Campo del Moro (Moor’s Field).

The world-renowned Prado museum

A few hours at the Prado will give you a glimpse into the world’s most beautiful collection of Spanish art. Indeed, the Velázquez painting, Las Meninas, hangs in the Prado. The museum also features incredible Italian art (Botticelli) and Flemish works (Bosch). 

Escape to Egypt

Escape to Egypt

There’s a rather unexpected building near the Royal Palace: the Temple of Debod. Built in Egypt (in Debod) in around 200 BC, it was given to Spain and re-erected in Madrid. The interior, which is open to the public, offers a journey into the corridors of ancient Egypt. Don’t miss the spectacular sunsets.

Outings

A trip to the market

Stay in the capital and immerse yourself in Spanish culture.  One very Spanish place is San Miguel market. Browse the colourful stalls beneath the venue’s glass roof, sample local produce and stop for a moment or two for a quick snack or delicious cake. There are some high-quality vendors here.

To the sound of the flamenco guitar

After you’ve had a few tapas, why not continue your evening in a tablao. Tablaos are flamenco venues showing lots of traditional dance performances. If you’d like to go to a high-quality show, it’s best to find places that are less touristy. The Corral de la Morería is meant to be the best tablao in Madrid.

Gastronomy

Tapas, dine like a true Spaniard

What could be more Spanish than tapas ? Tapas are appetisers available in the large majority of the city’s bars and are a staple of Madrid cuisine. They’re best eaten standing up with a glass of sangria or beer, and you can have as many tapas as you want. You can get hot and cold tapas, some are fish or meat dishes, others are vegetarian.

Enjoy a munching on some churros

Enjoy a munching on some churros

Locals simply adore churros, their favourite sweet treat. Churros are long doughnuts sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar and served with a thick, chocolate dipping sauce. You can’t visit the Spanish capital without eating this treat. You can pick churros up at any time of the day.
