About Madrid

Madrid is an open-minded city where culture, entertainment and business share an attractive, thriving space. Thanks to its modern and cosmopolitan flare and to the friendly and passionate character of Madrilenians, the Spanish capital makes everyone feel right at home while providing them with some of the world’s most interesting tourist attractions. Madrid’s cultural legacy offers visitors an unprecedented tour: the Art Walk (which includes the Prado Museum, the Reina Sofía National Museum and Art Centre, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and, more recently, CaixaForum). It is a unique walk through painting, sculpture, architecture and nature. With over 3,000 restaurants, Madrid can be considered a city where one can taste all the different cuisines in the world, as well as Spanish dishes. Undoubtedly, it also shows the richness of its own gastronomy with the “cocido madrileño” as its undisputed representative, while offering plenty of opportunities to try tapas. Sports are intensively lived in the city and there are a large number of specialised facilities to practice any discipline as well as to watch the best sports professionals. The world famous clubs such as the Real Madrid and the iconic Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, have helped building up the city´s international prestige.
