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 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 socialising in lounges, cafes and music venues, you’ll be spoilt for choice. The highlights include Club Musée, a nightlife venue that doubles as an art gallery.

Be entertained at Teatro de la Zarzuela

For a taste of old-world Spanish culture, visit this beautiful 19th century theatre, which hosts everything from musical theatre to opera and ballet. The performances are usually in Spanish, but even if you don’t understand the language, you’ll still appreciate the showmanship, music and setting.

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 de San Miguel is probably the most popular with the crowds, but locals in the know head to the cosier Mercado de San Anton instead.

Where to eat in Madrid

Botín (Spanish)

This charming spot near the Plaza Mayor has been open since 1725, and is recognised by Guinness World Records as the oldest restaurant in the world. The great Romantic painter Francisco Goya reportedly worked here in 1765; and Ernest Hemingway was a fan. The house specialty is meat roasted in a cast iron wood-burning stove.

Casa Lucio (Spanish)

Casa Lucio offers a slice of Madrid history. Opened in 1974, it’s owned and run by Lucio Blazquez, who began working there aged 12 when it was still the Meson del Segoviano. Today it maintains its old-fashioned charm. Don’t leave without trying the huevos estrellados (smashed eggs).

El Club Allard (International)

This two Michelin-starred restaurant has a number of set menus based around various themes. You’ll love the quirky little touches – for example, the petit fours are sweets in the shapes of sticks of chalk and are served on a mini chalkboard.

Places to stay in Madrid

Westin Palace Madrid

Westin Palace Madrid is a luxury hotel conveniently close to the Golden Triangle of Art. While there are lots of lounges and restaurants within walking distance, you must dine at least once at La Rotonda, an elegant restaurant under a huge stained glass dome that attracts a fashionable crowd.

Hotel Orfila

Even though it’s close to the city centre, this boutique hotel has an air of quiet calm. Housed in a converted 19th century mansion, it’s the perfect place for a quiet, relaxing stay in Madrid. The leafy patio and garden is a great place to spend an afternoon with a book.

Residencia Sudamericana

If you’re on a budget, head for the charming Residencia Sudamericana. This laidback hostel near the Prado Museum is popular with discerning backpackers, and a cut above the usual cheap accommodation: think wooden floors, quiet and pleasant rooms, and great views over the Paseo del Prado.

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
