Top Reasons to Go to Madrid
Hit the Centro Histórico: The Plaza Mayor on any late night when it's almost empty is the place that best evokes the glory of Spain's Golden Age.
Stroll down museum row: Find a pleasant mix of art and architecture in the Prado, the Reina Sofía, and the Thyssen, all of which display extensive and impressive collections.
Nibble tapas into the night: Indulge in a madrileño way of socializing. Learn about the art of tapas and sample local wines while wandering among the bars of Cava Baja.
Relax in the Retiro gardens: Visit on a Sunday morning, when it's at its most boisterous, to unwind and take in the sun and merrymaking.
Burn the midnight oil: When other cities turn off their lights, madrileños swarm to the bars of the liveliest neighborhoods—Malasaña, Chueca, Lavapiés, and more—and stretch the party out until dawn.
