The Romance of Madrid

Madrid is a city with a little bit of everything. Romantic, narrow alleyways wind through the historic district, and large parks seem to appear out of nowhere.

Flamenco dancers twirl their brightly coloured costumes in cafes, theatres and restaurants.

Young groups of friends flock to the bars and discos, well after midnight until the early hours of the morning. Sports are an integral part of life in Madrid, and bullfighting is a time-honoured tradition that still brings tourists and native Madrileños to its arenas.

Romance of Madrid at parks Parks and Gardens of Madrid

One of the largest public parks in Europe is Madrid’s Casa de Campo. The Casa de Campo houses an amusement park, zoo, and cable car station.

From there, take the cable car to the Parque del Oeste to enjoy the sweet fragrance of its large rose garden. El Retiro is one of Madrid’s most popular parks, where visitors can go boating on the lake or visit the Crystal Palace.

There are also many live shows in the park on the weekends. Click here to read more »
