Madrid Post Trip

The cultural center of the Spanish-speaking world, Madrid is one of Europe’s most vibrant and exciting cities. With its wide boulevards, polished historic architecture, rich restaurant scene, and relaxed feel, Spain’s political, financial, and cultural capital seems to have perfected the art of living. Explore the grand Royal Palace, residence of the monarchy. Marvel at the restored 1850 Opera House of the Royal Theater. Stroll the welcoming green pathways of El Retiro, one of Europe’s prettiest parks or visit the 19th-century National Library, home to historic archives and a fascinating archaeological museum. To take in the city’s renowned arts scene, step out of your hotel onto the Paseo del Prado, the “Golden Triangle of Art.” This prestigious district is the address of El Prado, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in the renovated Villahermosa Palace.
