Madrid Holidays

Your Madrid holiday

Madrid’s population dates back to prehistoric times, based on artefacts found along the Manzanares River. The city’s name Madrid is said to come from the Muslim Matrice, which refers to the water found in the region.

The city’s modern history began in the 10th century, when the Moors occupied a fort along the Manzanares River, from where they controlled the area until Alfonso VI conquered and changed the main mosque into the a Catholic church. Madrid’s first court was established in 1329, and Madrid was later handed over rule to Enrique of Tastamara.

During the 1500s, King Felipe II moved the imperial court to Madrid, and the population of the city increased dramatically. Much of Madrid’s city improvements such as gates, bridges, were built in the 18th century, as well as now-historic buildings like The Royal Palace, the Royal Theatre, the Ministry of Finance, the Natural Science Museum, and the Botanical Gardens.

The 19th century marked the War of Independence commemorating the battles against Emperor Napoleon’s rule. The French left the city after five years. Isabel II became the Queen until the revolt that eventually led to the Spanish Civil War.

Madrid maintained sovereignty from the Spanish Republic until Nationalist troops under Franco entered. Madrid became heavily industrialized, and Franco’s death resulted in the succession of a constitutional monarchy. Today, Madrid is a leader in culture, education, and industry on the peninsula.

As the autumn slowly approaches, there is no better way to kick back and relax than taking your holiday in Madrid.

A city with boundless energy and spirit, visitors can spend a day watching a live football game of Real Madrid, spend hours inside some of the most beautiful art galleries and museums in the world, and walk all around the city’s numerous parks and monuments.

Madrid is also known for its great nightlife of bars, restaurants, and legendary flamenco, so tourists will stay entertained through the wee hours. So what are you waiting for – hop on the next flight to Madrid today!

Best time to take a holiday to Madrid

  • The most comfortable times to visit Madrid are in the spring and fall, when temperatures average 25°C. Summers can be hot and relentlessly sunny, and many days reach 30°C and higher in June, July and August. If you are looking for pleasant weather without the crowds, visit Madrid during Easter, when many residents head out of the city for holiday. The winter is the low season, when you will find shorter lines at the city's museums. From late November until February, temperatures can drop to 1 degree Celsius and rain is common around Madrid.

Madrid highlights

  • Watch a Bullfight

    As one of Madrid’s most traditional and controversial sports, bullfights provide a fascinating glimpse into the country’s cultural past. The main bullring in Madrid is La Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas del Espíritu Santo.

    The arena has a unique style of red brick and ceramic tiles. The construction of the site was finished in 1929, and now services political speeches and rock concerts in addition to bullfights. It is the third largest in the world. Fights are held on Sundays.

    Go to a Fútbol Match with Real Madrid

    Head to Santiago Bernabeu Stadium to witness Spain’s favourite sporting event. With some of the world’s best players like Ronaldo, Kaka, and Higuain on the field, the atmosphere of a live Real Madrid game is incomparable. Most tickets are held on reserve for club members, but leftover tickets are sold at the stadium days before the match. Visitors can try this option or buy online, although the latter is more expensive.

    Listen to and watch some of Spain’s best flamenco

    Flamenco artists from around the country have flocked to Madrid since the 1800s, so it is no surprise to find Flamenco music in many different bars and restaurants around the city.

    The most famous spot is the Corral de la Moreria. It is the oldest flamenco restaurant in the city, and has some regular notable artists like Antonio Gades, Lucero Tena, and Mario Maya. If travellers want to learn how to dance flamenco, they should take some classes at Amor de Dios Academy, one of the city’s most famous.

    Shop at the Rastro Flea Market

    The largest market in the city happens every Sunday in the centre from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., catering to shoppers who are looking for products both antique and modern. The name comes from the trail of blood left from cattle that were brought to neighbouring tanneries. The market has over 3,500 different booths that line up and down streets and the Plaza de Cascorro.

  • Madrid

    The Royal Palace

    This is one of the first stops guests should check out within the city. The Palacio Real is the largest building in the city, and easily the most beautiful. The neighbouring Plaza de Oriente Square gives the palace a run for its money, however.

    The palace was designed for King Felipe V in the 18th century. Originally built for all of the king’s courtiers, today the palace has antique furniture, and artwork by artists such as Goya, Giordano, and Mengs.

    The Puerta del Sol

    This square is located in the centre of the city, and just a few blocks from Plaza Mayor. It was once the eastern edge of the city, and its gates face the sun (hence its name).

    Located in the heart of the city, the square is surrounded by beautiful buildings such as the clock towered Real Casa de Correos, which was part of the post office. On the other side of the square is the city’s official symbol the “Bear and Strawberry Tree” statue.

    The Prado Museum

    Arguably Madrid’s most famous cultural destination, this museum has one of the most complete art galleries in the world. The museum has historic works from European artists like Velázquez, Goya, Raphael, and Bosch.

    The building itself is almost 200 years old, and the name “Prado” comes from the gardens that originally surrounded the area. Notable works include Velazquez’s “Las Meninas”, “The Triumph of Bacchus”, and Rembrandt’s self-portrait, “Artemisia”. Another classic is Goya's once-controversial “The Naked Maja.”

    The Santa María de la Real de la Almudena Cathedral

    Visitors cannot leave Madrid without visiting at least one historic religious site such as the main cathedral. Construction began 100 years ago, but was not completed until 1993. Pope John Paul II consecrated the church, and its name holds true to Spain’s European and Arabic cultural mix. The architecture has neoclassic and gothic styles, and contains both granite and marble.
