Madrid is a passionate marriage of the ancient and the modern. From the bullfighting arena at Ventas to the masterpiece artworks of the Prado and Thyssen-Bornemisza, to the soaring skyscrapers of the business district, Madrid is not a city of half measures.
The city’s thirst for life spills over in to the city’s squares and along sweeping boulevards studded with architectural marvels. There are 15th-century mansions and palaces, soaring Baroque spires, and whimsical Belle Epoque fancies. The city’s sublime museums and galleries feature seminal works by Goya, Velázquez, Picasso, Dalí, and Miró. Madrid frequently ranks in the top 10 of the world’s most desirable places to live, and with its spirit of openness and its embrace of the moment, it’s not hard to see why.
Madrid is Southern Europe’s financial heart. Most of Spain’s leading companies are based here, including Telefónica, Iberia, and Repsol. Madrid’s nightlife is a feast for the senses. The 1980s ushered in the movement known as ‘la movida’ which defined a flamboyant arts scene liberated from the shackles of Franco’s dictatorship. Madrileños capacity to party is legendary and the city can lay claim to having more bars than any city in the world.
