Top attractions

Top attractions

Madrid is famous for its rich history and diverse culture, and with a wide range of attractions and activities there is something for everyone. The best thing about Madrid is that it offers a fuss-free city break, with a number of excellent attractions and restaurants within easy reach. The Puerta del Sol is the vibrant plaza at the heart of Madrid, a place where tourists and locals alike congregate to enjoy festivals, street performances and open-air parties that embody the vibrant spirit of the capital city. Another great feature of Madrid is the year-round gorgeous weather, which makes it easy to enjoy a summer vibe no matter what time of year you visit. The top attractions here make good use of the pleasant climate, such as heading to the Parque del Oeste, the city’s botanical gardens with incredible landscapes perfect for relaxing with family and romantic picnics as a couple.

Beaches

Beaches

While there’s no beach in Madrid itself, there are plenty of lovely beaches in the surrounding area if you’re searching for a place to cool off in the sea breeze or top up your holiday tan. While Madrid is land-locked in the heart of the country, the city has been cleverly designed with the needs of tourists and locals alike in mind. There are a number of public pools in close proximity to Madrid, meaning you don’t have to go to the beach to enjoy a refreshing swim. Alberche Beach is around an hour’s journey from Madrid and features a scenic riverside spot with sandy beaches and warm waters, ideal for swimming, paddling or renting boats. Nearby you’ll also find the Embalse de Picadas, a lake nestled in stunning green pine forests which separates you from the urbanised areas if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle. Here you’ll find a recreation area with space for a picnic or barbecue, fresh water and scenic landscapes.
