    We walked around the outskirts of the palace several times, one right after a rain storm and the other right before sunset. Both times were perfect for gorgeous photographs. And I love that it is probably haunted.

    Incredibly beautiful store buildings with all kinds of shopping! One of our favorite stores is Primark (many floors with a gorgeous open atrium).

    The plaza has the charm of an old town, and the amenities of modern life. Beautiful!
    I went there for the second time with my family and we all enjoy a stroll at the plaza:)

    Quick stop with lots to see and admire. Go during the day, and don't miss it at night. There is something simple and magical about being there... Great to walk around!

    Palacio de cristal is a nice building in the parque del buen retiro. Just steel and glass and a small exhibition. Must see.

    Puerta del Sol is mile 0 or center of Madrid, the capital of Spain where there is always street attractions. The horse & Jockey stature is a great point of regency where to meet, in from of the horse, it’s back side. It is the “Time Square” of Spain where New-year eve celebration start where the is a tradition of eating grapes. Make reservations early to participate in its festivities.
    But beware, beware of pick pockets there & at the Metro or really any place where there are crowds. You may think you are a savvy traveler but they are real, real experts.

    Lavish home which is stuffed full of paintings, porcelain and armoury. Something for everyone and only 3 euros entry!

    Very impressive building which is well worth a good look but the restaurant is very expensive for what it offers. Possibly best seen at night when there are lighting effects and much less traffic.

    It's a wonderful building and they do still hold bull fights on sundays. We were lucky to be there when they had one monday since it was a holday. Glad we went but be warned they do kill the bull

    The tour guide told us about it, it's a pitty you don't feel that literature atmosphere anymore, just some poems on the ground, sad... but still nice.

    The beauty inside this magnificent house of worship is nearly as stunning as some of the world’s greatest cathedrals, places we’ve seen like Vatican City’s St. Peter’s and Moscow’s St. Basil’s. With the third largest dome of any active church in Europe, measuring 108 feet (33 m) across, and incredibly well-preserved priceless works of art on the walls and ceiling, this destination cannot be missed while in Madrid!
