Weekend Breaks in Madrid

Having undergone rejuvenation over the last couple of decades, Madrid is now a bustling capital that that has put culture and art at the forefront of its identity. Apart from the main sights such as the Prado Museum and the Royal Palace, there are plenty of hidden gems, quaint curiosities and tranquil green sanctuaries that can be found immediately within the vicinity of the city centre.

The Prado is one of the most famous sights in Madrid, and together with the nearby Thyssen-Bornemisza and the Reina Sofia, they form what is known as the Golden Triangle of Art. These three museums cover an abundance of art that spans over both classical and modern pieces. See Picasso’s evocative masterpiece Guernica at the Reina Sofia and travel through art history at the other two to be completely updated. Exploring Madrid will also undoubtedly expose you to the amazing amount of green spaces found here. Surrounding the Prado, the eight hectare Botanical Gardens and the Retiro Park offer scenic escapes from the urban landscape, and each park in the city has a habit of being the home of beautiful buildings, like the Palacio Cristal in Retiro Park, quirky monuments like the reassembled, ancient Egyptian Temple of Debod in Parque del Oeste, as well as free-roaming animals like the peacocks in Sabatini’s Garden, just to name a few examples.

The heart of Madrid is the Puerta del Sol, where all the all the main streets meet. From here, you can head for a short walk past the Gran Via, to the vibrant areas Malasana and Chueca, where you’ll find narrow streets lined with vintage boutiques, restaurants and exciting bars. Further north, is Madrid’s most stylish avenue, the Castellana. Designer shops and luxurious hotels populate the area and here, like anywhere in the Spanish capital, you won’t be far from new experiences or beautiful buildings and parks to marvel at. Enjoy plenty of drink and tapas, and cheer on the local football teams among fanatical fans in one of the numerous bars, for a true experience of Madrid.

This majestic city has so much to offer that a weekend city break in Madrid may not give you enough time to explore its many charms. But if you are interested in weekend breaks in Madrid, as a romantic gesture for a loved one or to celebrate your forthcoming nuptials, we can help you find the best options to suit your budget.
