Explore Catalonia City Hotels in Madrid

Spain is one of the Europe’s top tourist destinations and its famous capital—magnificent Madrid—cannot be missed.

Madrid is Spain’s most populated city and has rich history and a wide array of cultural sites and activities. This city is best experienced by strolling along its vibrant streets, observing its majestic architecture and visiting its wide array of world-renowned museums such as the Prado Museum, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the Reina Sofia Contemporary Art Museum.

Admire Cibeles fountain—where Real Madrid fans gather to celebrate their victories—and the famous Puerta de Alcalá—one of the five doors to the old city. Take a well-deserved break at nearby Retiro Park. This green escape is dotted with gardens and a lake, perfect for a relaxing afternoon away from hustling Madrid.

Gran Vía is the tourist center of Madrid, packed with a theater, hotels, concert halls and movie theaters that light up the city at night.

With Madrid’s wide array of dining options, visitors can spend hours hopping between traditional bars and restaurants for delicious Spanish dishes like jamón serrano (cured ham), cocido madrileño (chickpea and thin noodle stew with vegetables, meats, and sausages), tripe, patatas bravas, calamari bocadillo (baguette sandwich) and an endless number of tapas accompanied by an excellent glass of wine or a refreshing beer.
