Madrid Spain Attractions
To admire the large collection of olden-day Spanish paintings from artists like Goya and Velázquez, check out the Prado Museum. Created between 1904-29, the Gran Via displays early 20th century architecture everywhere you turn and is a beautiful zone to walk through. The Royal Palace, one of Europe’s grandest, has over 2000 rooms and is as sensational as the Versailles one it was modeled after. With its large lake, museums and monuments, Retiro Park is simply delightful. Inside, be sure to give the army museum (or Museo del Ejército) a shot. Other attractions include Plaza Mayor, Alcalá street, Cibeles Palace, Fountain of Cybele, Monument to Alfonso XII, Fountain of Neptune, Campo del Moro Gardens, Las Ventas Bullring, the Santiago Bernabéu (a FIFA elite stadium) and many more.
