Somewhat obscured by its competitor Barcelona, the Spanish capital still attracts many business travelers. Attracted by the multitude of companies located in the city, they often stay a few more days to enjoy the unique atmosphere of this royal city.
1 – Visit the Prado Museum
It is the most famous museum of the city. Sheltering the paintings and sculptures of the greatest Spanish masters, it is a must for those who want to immerse themselves in Hispanic culture. Still, the most famous painting of the most celebrated painter, Guernica, is exhibited in another museum in Madrid: Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía
2 – Eat!
If nowadays tapas have invaded the world, nothing can equal the experience of enjoying it in the center of Latin culture! And in addition it is really affordable!
3 – Football
You really thought we were going to talk about Spain without talking about Football? You were wrong. The city has two clubs among the best in Europe. And their stadiums can be visited if you do not have the chance to have tickets for a game.
4 – Say Hello to the King
Spain is one of the last constitutional monarchies in the world. Restored to his throne after the departure of Franco, the Bourbon family occupies the Palacio Real. A sublime place that happens to be the largest Royal Palace – and still occupying this function – of Europe.
5 – Walk around the squares
If there are plenty of places to wander, there are two that must be seen. The Puerta del Sol and the Plaza Mayor. Each in their own way, they are symbolic places of Madrid which deserve the detour, even for a few minutes.
