See You in Madrid!

Madrid is Spain's financial and cultural capital, including some of the world's most prestigious galleries. Madrid is recognized as one of the most important cities in the Spanish-speaking world and in Southern Europe. There's a lot to see and do in this city!
The many calm (or packed!) plazas and active, energetic street activity reflect the Madrid environment and "feel-good" living. Despite being a large city, it maintains a "neighborhood vibe."
