When traveling to the capital city of Spain, there are must-do activities that you should never forget.

Alcala St., Madrid

 

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.

Moreover, Daily Mail UK Travel writer Chris Leadbeater gives us several activities to do when visiting Madrid (“The One Minute Guide to… Madrid: Glamour, Gastronomy and Guernica in Spain’s Capital”). Aside from checking out the largest park in the city, namely the Parque Del Buen Retiro, and dropping by the “three lauded institutions that make up its ‘Golden Triangle’ of galleries”, he also made sure that he tastes a slice of the Spanish cuisine during his stay.

For those seeking an unfussy – and still happily authentic – foray into Madrid’s culinary scene, the grungy tapas bars around the Plaza Santa Ana hold a definite charm. There are any number to choose from, not least on Calle de Nunez de Arca, where La Trucha, at number six (0034-91-532-0882), ranks as a suitably packed showcase for Hispanic snacking. Think hanging hams, pulpy octopus, and tomato-rich patatas bravas.
