Welcome to HotelGuide.Networks' directory of hotels and hotel reviews for Madrid, Spain!
As Spain's capital and largest city populated by more than 3 million, Madrid boasts exciting nightlife, historic sites and monuments, and scores of world-acclaimed museums. The Prado, with more than 7,000 works, is among the most world's most important art repositories. Madrid is also the loftiest capital of Europe, sitting on a central plateau (meseta) 2,120 feet above sea level. With altitude and a central location, Madrid has warm, dry summers and cool winters. Among other popular attractions are the Royal Palace, and the Puerta de Alcalá arch. It's easy to get involved in Madrid's social lifestyle, with its crowded streets and busy 'tapa-tasting' cafes that stay open long into the night. For morning or afternoon coffee or evening sangria, people (and pigeons) gravitate to the Plaza Mayor in the heart of Madrid, which once stood outside the city wall. Architect Juan Gómez de Mora originated it during the reign of Philip III, and under the Hapsburgs it became more important for public spectacles from bullfights to the burning of heretics. Despite fire devastation 1631, 1672, and 1790, the plaza remained viable and eventually was redesigned by Juan de Villanueva. The Museo Taurino (Bullfighting Museum) provides an excellent prelude to attending an event near the ring. On display is the death suit of Manolete, worn by the matador when he was fatally gored at age 30. Photos and other memorabilia showcase the history of bullfighting in Spain.
