Life in and around Madrid

Madrid is famous for its cultural treasures, the world famous Prado and Reina Sofia art galleries, the ancient Hapsburg portico-lined Plaza Mayor, and of course its exciting and vibrant social life, delicious Spanish food – and sunny skies.

Madrid is in the centre of Spain, surrounded by peaceful mountains, historic towns and royal palaces. There are 3 UNESCO World Heritage Sites within easy reach - El Escorial, the 16th-century monastery-palace; the elegant historic town of Aranjuez; and the university town of Alcalá de Henares. Just south of Madrid is the beautiful hilltop city of Toledo and to the north are all the attractions of Segovia, with its magnificent Roman aqueduct and fairy-tale castle.
