MADRID, CAPITAL OF SPAIN
Welcome to the capital of Spain… ¡MADRID!
MADRID is not only the capital and geographical center of Spain but also an important cultural center where a visit to the Prado Museum, one of the most important Museums in the world is highly recommended. This Museum together with the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, showing masterpieces from XIII to XIX centuries and Reina Sofía Museum with the most important Picasso works, the “Guernica”, belong to the so-called “Art-Triangle”. The assistance to a performance at the Royal Theatre will provide the visitors with an unforgettable experience.
MADRID is also a lively city where we can stroll the bustling Puerta del Sol or having a break at Plaza Mayor drinking a cup of coffee in order to gain strength to discover more monuments such as Plaza de Oriente with the Royal Palace and Madrid’s Cathedral La Almudena. During a Panoramic Tour we will face Cervantes Monument at Plaza de España, Cibeles Fountain which is well-known under the Football followers as it is the place where the Spanish Football Team and Real Madrid Club celebrate their sport successes. The imposing fountain Fuente de Neptuno stands proud near the emblematic Palace hotel and surrounded by other wonderful buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries. Another important and historic symbol of the city is the Puerta de Alcalá. A quiet walk through the old town should not also be missed. A visit to the Monastery San Lorenzo de El Escorial, a huge monumental work represents a top goal to this incursion to the center of Spain.
During a cultural trip we can’t forget gastronomy high lights; so you will be lodged at comfortable, centrally located hotels and enjoy tasting the most typical gastronomy at emblematic restaurants.
