This Spanish capital is an energising, dynamic city filled with world-class museums, monumental architecture, humble cuisine and a spectacular nightlife — some may say this is one of the purest artistic cities in Europe. Centuries ago, Spanish royals would shower the finest artists with praise and riches due to their indigenous talent. Masterpieces by iconic Spanish painters including Picasso, Dalí and Miró now embellish the walls of Madrid’s world-class galleries.

Aside from its magnificent artistic hub, the local cuisine has allowed Madrid to emerge into one of the most affluent culinary capitals in Europe. This city has not only deeply embraced the artistry and innovation of the Spanish gastronomical revolution, but also showcases the authentic traditions of Spanish cooking. Be prepared to indulge on magical culinary creations; from sit down meals on street plazas to tapas beneath centuries-old vaulted ceilings.

Madrid is all about spontaneity. If you’re looking to behave like a true Madrileño, ditch the agenda, let loose, don’t make any set plans and let this magnificent city take you on a grandiose adventure.
