Great things to do in Madrid

As a capital and political centre of Spain, Madrid is portrayed as a hub of creative and cultural activity. Also known for its vivacious night life and fun-loving people, one cannot just simply ignore including this place on their places to visit wishlist. Enlisted below are some of the unique experiences you can gather while in Madrid.

• Eye feast at sundown … Experience the dazzling ducks that Madrid has got to offer, popularly known as ‘magenta affairs’. Admire the shade and sight from top of the Paseo del Pintor Rosales and don’t forget to carry a pair of binoculars to get a magnified view!

• Watch flamenco … Considering Madrid as a stage for a good percentage of the finest flamenco dancers on the planet, be sure to attend a restaurant of that class to begin a huge night out – though keep your moving shoes ready for the party!

• Experience Madrid’s Little Egypt … Regarded as the city’s most wonderful spot and laid beyond the edge of the Casa de Campo, you can witness the Templo de Debod, for an interesting Egyptian touch in Madrid. It’s a genuine art with stony sculptures flowing right from the tributaries of the Nile.

• Relax at Valencia … A half an hour drive from Madrid, this beach is an epitome of a leisure spot. Provided you already had the pleasure of the wonderful spa hotels in Madrid, the sun beating down at the Valencia beach is just a different sort of natural feeling, nothing can beat.

• Go high … See the wonderful sight of this city from the top, utilising the Teleférico de Madrid cable car, which undertakes a 2.5km outing over Casa de Campo. Assuming that doesn’t fit your mania, take the lift up to the communication tower, which at 92m presents to you the best outlook over the entire city.

• The Golden Triangle … Formed by the city’s three fundamental display centers, Golden Triangle is the social focal point of this city. The Prado Museum, the Thyssen Bornemisza and the Reina Sofia Museum are a must see while in Madrid. Be sure to carry your cameras, since you wouldn’t want to miss out on capturing rare pieces in the museum.

• Head off to the Rastro … Weekly flea market in Madrid permits you to purchase essentially anything and everything! Known to be the biggest such platform in Europe, boasting upto 3,500 separate stalls, it expands through numerous avenues in the city’s eldest working population neighborhoods. Created in the Medieval Ages, its centre point is Plaza de Cascorro (emphasizing a statue of incredible trooper Eloy Gonzalo) and slumps downhill towards the stream.
