Flights to Madrid

The best way to tackle this cosmopolitan city is to do as the locals do and take to the streets the moment your flight to Madrid arrives. Madrileños are famous for their energy, and you’ll need bags of it to explore the best of what the city has to offer.

The vibrant Spanish capital is best experienced with a hunger to consume. You could be sampling local cuisine at the Mercado de San Miguel in the morning, wandering the art exhibitions of the Prado Museum in the afternoon, and then losing yourself to Madrid’s infamous nightlife of tapas tasting and lounge hopping in upmarket Gran Vía until it’s time for breakfast.

Breakfast, like every other meal in the city, is taken seriously. Perhaps more than any other destination in Spain, food is a huge part of the culture. Madrid is, in fact, home to the oldest restaurant in the world, Restaurante Botín, which has been open since 1725. As well as experiencing this piece of history, you can also immerse yourself in one of Europe’s most exciting restaurant scenes, where the best meal of your life may come from a Michelin-starred chef or a hole-in-the-wall tapas joint.

Part of the reason the food is so good is because Spain’s largest city is also one of its most cosmopolitan. Communities from all over the world, including Latin America, Africa, Asia, and the rest of Europe, have settled here, creating a melting pot of cultures and an exciting travel destination.

Some of the biggest attractions, however, are home-grown: the Prado Museum, the Picasso Museum, and the legendary flamenco venue La Solea, to name a few.

What to do in Madrid

Embrace the night

Madrid is a city for night owls, where dinner doesn’t start until late and the mingling rarely stops before morning. If you enjoy socializing in lounges, cafes, and music venues, you’ll be spoiled for choice. The highlights include Club Musée, a nightlife venue that doubles as an art gallery.

See live music

Madrid has one of the coolest, most eclectic music scenes in Spain. Check out Café Populart, a trendy venue in the city centre. Previous performers have been varied and eclectic – from country and western duos to Latin jazz bands. A little bit of something for everyone.

Visit the food markets

One of the best ways to soak up Madrid's atmosphere and try its cuisine is to get up early and head for the food markets. Mercado San Miguel is probably the most popular with the crowds, but locals in the know head to the cosier Mercado de San Anton instead.

Once upon a time in Almeria

For a decade during the mid-1960s, hidden away in the southeastern Spanish province of Almeria were the stirrings of a cinematic resurrection. Among the hot desert winds of the eroded badlands, a band of European filmmakers flocked to the Tabernas Desert, making it home to the Spaghetti Western. Its semiarid landscape emulated the American Arizona Desert and the northern Mexican border where the films’ scenarios were set. The genre became known as the Spaghetti Western Read more Once upon a time in Almeria
