Madrid Travel Guide

by our Spain expert Conrad Freethy
 
Conrad FreethyEurope’s highest capital is a fascinating collection of contrasting neighbourhoods. On a fleeting visit, don’t miss the wonderful collections that fill the Prado or the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum. Velázquez portraits, Goya frescos and haunts once frequented by Cervantes seem to crop up everywhere you look. Whet your appetite in a tiled tapas bar before joining the locals as they dine out late. Set your pulse racing with the sounds of jazz, rock, salsa and flamenco in the fashionable clubs around Chueca and Malasaña. Then soothe away that hangover in the gardens of Retiro Park, a family-friendly space, like that of Casa del Campo, where ponds, fountains and Punch and Judy shows wait to distract.
