Why go to Madrid

A holiday in Madrid lifts the spirit and warms the heart. It's a city that sweeps you up in its passion for everything from high art and politics to food and drink – and the blue skies throughout the year certainly help, too.

Historically, royal Madrileños – Madrid locals – have loved fine art, so much so that they have dedicated centuries to building exquisite galleries to display their collections. The result is the Golden Triangle of Art, with the Museo Nacional del Prado now one of the world’s most important art museums. You could spend days in these galleries, taking in works by Spanish greats, including Goya, Velázquez and Picasso. But that’s just the beginning. Hunt out the smaller museums for even more European classics.

Madrid is great for food, too. Large markets host gourmet food stalls alongside wine kiosks and tapas bars, while high-end restaurants run by award-winning chefs serve up innovative dishes all across the city. Eat meals from Mexico, Japan or Peru, or stick to local specialities, such as cocido madrileño (a simple stew of meat and chickpeas).
