Here’s a lowdown on 7 attractions in Madrid that you can’t afford to miss –
1. The Prado:
The Prado Museum (Museo del Prado) is considered to have one of the world’s finest collections of European art. Whether you are a history buff or an art connoisseur, exploring the masterpieces at the Prado is an enlightening and enriching experience. Though famous for many artworks, Bosch’s ‘Garden of Earthly Delights’ and Caravaggio’s ‘David with Head of Goliath’ are some of the works that attract thousands of people to Madrid every year.
2. The Royal Palace of Madrid:
The Royal Palace of Madrid is the official residence of the Spanish Royal family. However, the royal family chooses to stay in a modest palace on the outskirts of the city. Many rooms of the palace are open to the public except during state functions. You can either opt for a guided tour or you just walk around at your own pace. While the interiors of the palace are undoubtedly lavish and extravagant, the palace from the outside looks equally stunning.
3. Santiago Bernabéu Stadium:
Whether or not you are a football fan when in Madrid you cannot miss the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, the mecca for football lovers. For any football fan, especially a Real Madrid fan, the opportunity to step inside the dressing room where the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo get ready, the dugouts and seeing all the trophy collection in person is not less than a pilgrimage. It’s a lifetime opportunity to see this gargantuan 85,000-seater stadium where history has been made one goal at a time.
4. Mercado San Miguel:
For a foodie, Mercado San Miguel is heaven. Locals and tourists throng Mercado San Miguel to shop, to eat and or to just to have a good time. Though it’s fresh produce market, there are several stalls where you can sample the local delicacies from all around Spain while gulping down a glass of sangria.
5. Royal Chapel of St. Anthony of La Florida:
It’s the beautiful frescos by Francisco Goya, famous romantic painter of Spain,\that makes Royal Chapel of St Anthony of La Florida a visual treat. The chapel also happens to be his resting place.
6. The Royal Theatre:
The Royal Theatre is one of the most fascinating places in Madrid. There are well-guided tours in several languages for tourists. The theatre has a seating capacity of more than 1,745 people. If you are able to catch a show here, the experience is unmatchable.
7. Retiro Park:
Covering over 125 hectares, Retiro Park is one of the largest parks in Madrid. It’s just a few steps away from the Royal Palace and has a lake, several interesting sculptures, and fountains. Renting a horse-drawn carriage or paddling a rowboat in the lake is something that will just transport you to a different era.
