It is possible that the city that never sleeps has calmed down a little in recent years. Yet, even if the bars close a bit earlier these days, you can still count on finding a party atmosphere at all times of the day and in all situations. And then, once you have had enough of socializing, you can take a few days out and enjoy the best kilometre of art to be found in Europe.

Do and see
Madrid is a wonderful city that truly inspires a casual stroll around the green areas. People are happy and there are impressive buildings, lush parks and picturesque streets in abundance. Culture is ever present here and you don't have to be a history buff to appreciate the architecture and reminders of history.
Real Madrid
Real Madrid is a professional football club based at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid. Real Madrid is considered one of the best football clubs in the world, and they have won an impressive number of titles, both in Spain and abroad. Santiago Bernabeu stadium was inaugurated in 1947 and has a capacity of more than 85,000 spectators. Three times the European Cup final has been held here.
Flamenco
Madrid is a city renowned all over the world for its excellent Flamenco performances, and the popular dance can be seen in several taverns and bars around the city. Enjoy a three course meal and after dinner, take in the magical shows. Flamenco is not only a dance though, but also the song and music to which the dance is performed. It originated in Andalusia and is known mostly for song accompanied by guitar and complex techniques of foot stamping and hand clapping and the use of castanets. The best place to go for a breathtaking exhibit of Flamenco is "Corral de la Moreria". They are famous for their Flamenco shows and also serve great dinner.
The Three Big Art Galleries
Madrid’s three major art galleries are all within a short walk of each other, and together they make up a magnificent display illuminating the history of Western art. Each one of the galleries is so large, that the Paseo del Arte triple ticket may seem like an invitation to exhaustion, however, once you have visited one, you have the rest of the year to visit in the other two!
Prado
The Prado is one of the most famous museums in the world. Since the gallery first opened almost two hundred years ago, its collections have grown. It fact 7000 paintings is housed here (although around 1500 are currently on display). The collection includes Spanish art from Velázquez and some dark works of Goya and some works by a number of Flemish masters: Peter Paul Rubens, Pieter Bruegel, and Anton Van Dyck. Make sure to have plenty of time when visiting Prado since there is so much beautiful art to see.
The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum
Thyssen-Bornemisza complements the Thyssen Prado and the Reina Sofia with works representing 17th-century Dutch painting, Impressionism, Russian Constructivism, and pop art, amongst other styles.
The Reina Sofia Museum
The third gallery in the trio, is housed in an enormous former hospital. The building dates from the mid-18th century, and has since added striking glass and steel external lifts. The collection consists mainly of Spanish works from the 20th century—the most famous of which is without doubt, Picasso’s ’Guernica.’
Palacio Real
The biggest royal palace in Europe, the Palacio Real de Madrid - as the Madrilenian call it, has for sure a big surface of 135.000 m2 and 3418 rooms. Not only is the building itself a beautiful attraction but it also offers glorious gardens outside, and beautiful frescoes, furniture and paintings inside. This magnificent creation dating from 1764 was built to replace the Alcázar castle that had burned down thirty years before. Visitors are given access to almost the entire palace, including the Armoury and Pharmacy. Truly, this is the perfect place to visit the world of royalty.
El Escorial
The Monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial is located about 50 kilometres Northwest of Madrid. It was founded by Felipe II, and was built to commemorate the victory at the Battle of San Quintín. The work began in 1563 and was finished by 1584. Its location is said to be decided on the advice of astrologers, doctors, philosophers, quarrymen, theologians and architects. El Escorial was built on the idea of maintaining the symmetry and austerity, while also showing the power of the crown of Spain. It has many monuments, such as the servants' quarters, the Queen’s quarters, the Infante’s (or Upper) house, and the Prince’s (or Lower) house. San Lorenzo de El Escorial is one of the most visited places in the Community of Madrid.
