If you think of Madrid as the unsophisticated big sister of Barcelona, or perhaps the dreary aunt of Ibiza, then you are very wrong. Home to 3.3 million people, the city of Madrid lies in the centre of Spain and has truly become the literal and symbolic heart of the country. It may not have one iconic grand building such as the Eiffel Tower or the Colosseum, where you might know in an instant where you are; but Madrid can give so much more to those who are willing to immerse themselves completely into what this beautiful city has to offer.

Food enthusiasts will be spoiled by the choices here and surprised by the generally low prices. Tantalised by tapas? Fascinated with fresh food markets? Delighted by delicate treats? If your answers are yes then Madrid is for you. Prepare your eyes, and your stomach, for the feast of a lifetime in Madrid.

The artists among you can stroll through grand halls and gaze at paintings by the likes of Goya, Picasso, Miro and El Greco; be swept up into centuries past and pulled in by the pictures depicted on the canvas. Madrid offers some of the best museums in the world, such as El Museo del Prado.

If you love to shop, look no further. Madrid provides everything from high-end boutiques and internationally known brands to stores that provide a true local charm and have been around for centuries.

Madrid is not just the Cultural Capital of Europe. It has its own lifestyle, an attitude carried by those who live here. Don’t be fooled by their relaxed smiles and generally laid-back approach to life, madrileños love to party and know how to do it right. There is something for everyone, from live music and jazz to the grand international clubs. Delve into the city’s nightlife and you will not be disappointed.
