Spain’s sunny weather during summer has been attracting travelers from all over the world who are seeking a relaxing holiday, but the country’s largest city and capital is no place where you can laze about. Whether you are gazing at Madrid’s architectural marvels, exploring its world-class museums or rollicking the night away at a tapas bar, the many attractions here would be too captivating for you to miss. Fortunately, its most popular destinations are just centrally located, so there is no reason for you to pass up the opportunity to be able to experience its top attractions and activities.

Sightseeing destinations in Madrid

While Madrid goes head-to-head for attention with Barcelona’s trendy lifestyle and the sunny beaches in the south, it is its diverse treasures that have been winning the hearts of travelers. As previously mentioned, great tourist attractions here can just be found within the city, from world-class art collections and 17th-century plazas to tapas festivals and flea markets. There is so much to discover and explore in this great city—as one would expect, Madrid has it all!

Top tour activities in Madrid

To make your holiday more fun and memorable, you should experience as much of everything Madrid is famous for. Here are things to do on your trip:

  • Watching a Flamenco Show - Flamenco shows can be heard or seen in many taverns and bars in the city. You should go for a dinner to one of these places and enjoy listening to the music afterwards. The best places to see one of these shows is the Corral de la Moreria and other similar tablao restaurants.
  • Seeing a Bullfight - The best time to see a bullfight in Madrid is May or June. Take note that the world-famous San Isidro bullfight festival happens during these months and brings together the best fighters and bulls, as well as aficionados.
  • Watching Real Madrid Play - One of the best things to do during your vacation in Madrid would be seeing the city’s football club play. The ticket you buy will be a complete package that includes a small souvenir and the courier charge to send your tickets to where you are staying.

Top tour attractions in Madrid

When it comes to attractions, Madrid is definitely hard to beat, as it is crawling with historical and modern pleasures for every tourist. Here are those that you should not miss:

  • Palacio Real - Built in 1764 and boasting more than 2,500 ornately decorated rooms, the Royal Palace served as the residence of Spanish royalty, from Carlos III to Alfonso XIII in the early 1900s. While it is still used for official ceremonies, many of its elegant rooms are open to the public.
  • Plaza Mayor - Dating back to 1619, this is regarded as the most famous among the many stately plazas in the city, which hosted bullfights in the past. Its structures are ornamented with balconies framed with wrought-iron railings, decorated with frescoes and topped with elegant slate spires. There is also a statue of Philip III on horseback standing in the middle.
  • Prado Museum - This 18th-century structure was designed by architect Juan de Villanueva and is now home to one of the finest art collections in the world. With more than 7,000 works of art representing history and culture, it is most likely impossible to see everything in a single visit.
