Known and loved for its lively streets as much as its impressive architecture, it is an artistic city with several iconic galleries and museums. Nowadays, Madrid's newly-found status as a culinary capital means visitors can experience the Spanish gastronomic revolution too – from tapas bars to excellent restaurants. Puerta del Sol, at the city's geographic centre, is replete with coffee houses and sightseers, while the main thoroughfare of Gran Via is sure to attract shoppers.

Airport Car Hire
Madrid Barajas is Spain's main international airport and travel hub. Approximately 10 kilometres from the financial district north of Madrid and well connected by Renfe and metro trains, Barajas airport has four terminals and is also known as Madrid Adolfo Suarez airport. A suburb of the capital, the nearby old town of Barajas shares excellent motorway connections to the M40 and M11.
Attractions in Madrid
In the Spanish capital, typical narrow streets contrast with the main artery of Gran Via, one kilometre long and which runs from Plaza de España to the middle of the grand square, with its Miguel Cervantes monument. On both sides of the road and its side streets, visitors will find more than enough shops to see in one day. There is an ample choice of cafeterias to enjoy an iced coffee, or some legendary bars for non-driving passengers. In terms of the city's cultural offering, the Prado Museum houses the Spanish national art collection, while the Reina Sofia Gallery is nearby. On the other hand, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum covers all the major artistic periods, from Renaissance to modern pop.
Places to Visit Outside Madrid
A short drive west of central Madrid, the Casa de Campo features a zoo aquarium, a cable car ride with panoramic views, and a small theme park. There is even a programme of occasional open-air concerts. In the Barajas area, Capricho Park has 18th-century gardens with lakes, woods, follies and temple-like columns that give a romantic feel. For customers visiting the Madrid Trade Fair centre, nearby Juan Carlos I Park boasts various gardens to complement an artificial river and fountains – ideal for relaxing in summer. Exploring further afield is straightforward; Madrid enjoys excellent road connections to the rest of Spain, including the A-3, M-23 and M-30 motorways.
Parking and Traffic Information in Madrid
Notably, while driving in Madrid, there are numerous one-way systems and special lanes reserved for buses and taxis – some with enforcement cameras. Parking-wise, limited spaces are available on some side roads, but are often metered or restricted to residents and permit holders. Public underground car parks are numerous and well signposted, though costly for long periods. Usefully, some supermarkets offer complimentary free parking with small purchases. In contrast, it is easier to find free parking on the outskirts of Madrid.
