Why Visit Madrid?

This modern Spanish city is located in the heart of Iberia, which is said to be the reason it earned its place as Spain’s capital in 1606. Madrid is a lively city abundant with culture, architecture, art and an energetic nightlife. Over three million people call this remarkable capital city home and many more millions visit each year to see attractions like Prado Museum that houses artwork by the likes of Velázquez and Goya, and other popular attractions like the baroque Royal Palace and Armory, and beautiful sculpture parks like the Buen Retiro.

Aside from its enviable collection of European art that can also be found in museums such as Reina Sofia and the Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid is praised for having some of the best food and wines in Spain. When you arrive in Madrid, tasting their tapas and wines are a must. Sample their delicious hams and the various kinds of cheeses to pair with a glass of something divine. Head into the traditional bustling bars in the evening and indulge in the rich flavours of their garlic shrimp, olives and chicken. 

Visitors will enjoy feasting at gourmet restaurants, meandering through flea markets and drinking the best of Madrid's wines. Let your wine holidays take you to new heights as you sample Vermouth (Vermú), a fortified and aromatised wine that’s hugely popular amongst the Spanish.
