Museo Nacional del Prado
Not amazingly interested in art, but I certainly enjoyed this because there were so many great paintings to look at. I went on a Sunday evening as it was free admission. A bit too much for one day and as I stated before, I am not really into art. However, if you want to visit quickly, I would definitely visit the first floor and then maybe see some others if you have time. One of the best attractions in Madrid and a definite must see.

Week in Madrid
We spent a great week in Madrid recently. Terrific food and nightlife and we thought we would take in a few of the famous sights. First of all we visited the Museo del Prado, which did not disappoint, with so many amazing paintings by great artists - would definitely recommend the guided tour. Other cultural trips included Cerralbo Museum - absolutely stunning and the audio-guide came in handy and then the Royal Palace - we both loved the architecture. Enjoyed our visit to the Plaza Mayor, where once again, guides were extremely useful. Strolled around the Retiro Park - so much to see and a great place for a picnic.

Churches in Madrid
Madrid has more than 200 churches scattered throughout its charming streets. Visiting each church could take months, so there are a few must-sees that really encompass the architectural and spiritual feeling of the Spanish Catholics. The Cathedral de Santa Maria, Basilica de San Francisco and La Capilla de Obispo are three of the most famous and most spectacular churches in all of Madrid. If you use car hire Madrid like all of these churches can easily been seen in a few hours.

Walking the streets of Madrid
We stayed in a very central hotel and this was definitely a good idea. We were able to walk to so many of the attractions and we really enjoyed walking around the city. There is a lot of action based around the Plaza Mayor and we thoroughly enjoyed trying out the tapas bars around the Cava Baja. This is definitely a good way to get around.

Visit the zoo if you have kids
The Madrid Zoo Aquarium is good if you have come here with your children. It opened in 1770 and now has around 6000 animals. We loved the aquarium part and the dolphins. It is on the Casa de Campo and has fairly recently been tarted up a bit, so was nice and fresh when we went there. The fodo was quite good as well.

Plaza de Espana - the main square in Madrid and Spain
This is the heart of Madrid and one of Spain's largest and busiest public plazas. Lots of steet vendors tend to gather here and we enjoyed walking around and seeing what they were offering. There are some coll monuments and statues, and a big fountain. After we felt we'd explored the Plaza de Espana, we headed on down the Gran Via, which was right next to it.
