Coming from a rich regal history and being the hub of the Spanish Kingdom, the modern-day Madrid now proudly offers its architectural churches, huge cathedrals, imposing Spanish Monarchy establishments and most especially the Royal Palace.

So travelers who’re in for a good amount of cultural and architectural experience ought to check out the capital city of Spain, though those who are simply looking for a good time will enjoy Madrid as well because this doesn’t merely limit its self to Spanish landmarks, museum triangles and parks but also presents flamenco shows, concerts and the most popular among young crowds, parties.
