Madrid sits on a plateau like an elegantly dressed matron, bejeweled with classic monuments and crowned with stately museums housing some of the world's greatest works of art. But don't be fooled by this formal exterior. At night, the confines of being the economic and governmental center of Spain are shed, and the city transforms into an energetic party girl staying out until dawn swinging through the myriad of clubs, cafes and restaurants. Madrid is compact and most of the sights of interest are found in the Centro area between the Royal Palace and Parque del Retiro. Some of the important sights not to miss are: Museo del Prado, one of the world's greatest art galleries containing important works by Spanish and European masters, the massive Royal Palace, commissioned by Philip V and open to the public, and the Plaza Mayor, Madrid's famous central arcaded square, a very lively bustling place day and night. If you re in Madrid during the bullfighting season (March to October) Plaza de Toros is Spain's largest bullring, where regular bullfights are held each Sunday. The STREETWISE® map of Madrid contains all important sites, plus hotels, metro stations and parks.

Also highlighted are special walks through old Madrid. The inset Madrid Metro map provides a quick way to travel throughout the city. The Madrid Area map inset will navigate you in and out of Madrid and help you find the Aeroporto International Barajas.
