What to do in
A few centuries back, in the time of conquistadors and gold-filled galleons, Madrid was the centre of the world. The city has preserved its glorious past and its heritage, and is gradually regaining its former prestige. But don’t let that make you think this city lives in the past! It's quite the contrary: people here savour - even devour - the present moment, living life to its fullest. Behind its uptight front, the capital of Spain is as Spanish as it gets, a deliriously joyful place that's full of passion and excitement.
