Madrid, Spain’s capital, with its prime location in the centre of the peninsula, is the cultural and institutional centre of the country. With Barajas Airport only 20 minutes from the city centre, and connected via public transport, it is Spain’s most important airport, receiving more than XXX travellers in 2012.
Madrid is the classic capital city of modern life.
Its location in the country’s central plateau provides for quick access to anywhere in the country, connected to the capital by many means of transport from all parts of the peninsula.
Barajas Airport is one of the largest in Europe, catering for a large volume of travellers, and is comfortable and accessible. Getting to the airport is easy, either by taxi (20-30), metro (2), or bus (2), and takes only 30 minutes from the city centre.
Where once Madrid was home to people from all four corners of Spain, it is now home to people from all four corners of the globe, from all different cultures and viewpoints. But one thing has remained the same - here everyone finds their place because nobody questions where they come from. Life is visible through the rhythm of the city. The streets are always packed and it never seems to get late. LIFE is the main pillar of the city’s promotion model and within it, all of its concepts have their own entity.
Within a few metres of each other are the masterpieces of Goya, Velázquez and Picasso, which welcome visitors who have come to Madrid from all over the world. Great museums (Prado, Thyssen, Reina Sofía, etc.) and great artists form an essential chapter in the history of art. Nowadays, both painters and the most avant-garde architects have found a perfect ground for experimentation on our streets.
Only in the big cities can you find musicals, independent cinema, theatre, flamenco, opera and jazz shows. Madrid is probably one of the few cities in the world where every night you can choose between listening to a tenor, watching a dancer or attending the premiere of a Thai film.
You can find almost anything in Madrid. Variety is characteristic of the city’s trade - from the most luxurious shops in the Salamanca neighbourhood, to the alternative fashion in Fuencarral Street. Madrid transcends fashion - your style cannot be defined. It represents a collection of all trends and is a surprising and lively pastiche.
Tradition is fundamental for a young city. Talking about folklore means talking about the future. Flamenco, zarzuela and the bulls are present in even the most avant-garde of Madrid’s expressions. The transmission of rituals from generation to generation is part of the life of those living in any city. For this reason, taking a walk on El Rastro, going to a bull fight or a parade, watching a zarzuela or participating in a social gathering in Madrid are deeply-rooted customs which have been there for as long as we can remember.
This city is recognised worldwide for its unique nightlife. There are places open for you to go out, dance, laugh, chat, flirt, etc. Here, going out at night is a part of the culture. The nights feature all shades and colours: the most minimalist chill out areas, the sexiest clubs, the Gothic dance clubs, the most contemptible bars, the maddest afterhours and the most nostalgic dance venue.
