Everything You Need to Know About Madrid: Your Key to the Capital


Madrid is one of the friendliest and welcoming cities in the World and frequently amongst the top 10 visited cities in Europe. But what is it that makes this city so enticing? Is it because of the local Madrileños, the gorgeous weather or perhaps the heavenly mix of beer and tapas? Whatever your reason for visiting, here is our mini guide to the city’s highlights.

Points of Interest

It would be impossible here to list all of Madrid’s attractions in this mini guide, so for a more detailed guide check out our city guide here. A walk around the Temple of Debod is a great way to get to know the city and enjoy the majestic panoramic of the city. Other must-visit sites in the capital include the Madrid cable car, the Almudena Cathedral and the Royal Palace. If you are interested in visiting museums during your time in Madrid then you’ll be almost spoilt for choice. Art enthusiasts should head for the Museo Del Prado, the Museo Reina Sofia and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum which make up the famous “Golden Triangle of Art”. Lovers of Sport will be in their element as the city is home to the impressive stadiums of both Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. However, if you just want to relax with a book, there are many parks and green spaces to choose from. We recommend the “Casa de Campo” park where you can enjoy the rich variety of wildlife around the tranquil boating lake.

Food and Drink

Food and Drink is a fundamental part of the social scene in Madrid and vital to the local way of life. As a result, wherever you are in the city there will be a multitude of diverse places to eat and drink. The city is littered with terrace bars where you can enjoy a free tapa with every beer, especially in “La Latina” neighbourhood where the streets are alive with people chatting and drinking together. If you are looking for a fantastic culinary experience during your trip, head to “La Taberna de Quevedo” or “La Posada de la Villa” for a taste of quality Madrilenian cuisine.


The Madrid metro network is one of the longest and most extensive in the world. It’s worth buying a 10 journey ticket for your stay in Madrid as they work on both the Metro and the bus. Taxis in Madrid are quick and, in general, cheaper than in most other capital cities in Europe. Each taxi driver is required to pass an exam before obtaining their licence which involves memorizing more than 20,000 streets and attractions throughout the city.

The Madrilenian Scene (La Movida Madrileña)

La Movida Madrileña was a term that emerged in the 1980’s to describe the wild party lifestyle that was prevalent throughout the city. Nowadays, Madrid is still known as a party capital and every year, tourists flock to the Spanish city to enjoy the famous sights during the day and the nightlife after the sun goes down. If you come to Madrid, visiting a few bars in the evening should be an essential part of your itinerary.
