Madrid. What city. Spain's capital and largest city, Madrid is the main destination for most visitors. And for good reason - it's a lively city that is not only affordable by Western European standards, but also boasts exceptional culture, architecture, art and great nightlife. But it's also a fairly modern city, so you'll find that much of the architecture is from the 20th century – which can sometimes come as a surprise to many visitors looking for "old" Europe. That said, it's a city brimming with energy that continues to attract visitors year after year.

If you want to travel to Madrid for a few days and make the most of your stay, we recommend that you do it mainly in two periods, included in the months of September and October or in April and May. In these seasons they like a warm and very welcoming climate. Summer in Madrid is not recommended, as it is very hot and almost everyone takes the opportunity to go out to other coastal areas to beat the heat.

We visited the Jardim Parque Del Capricho, which was created at the end of the 18th century by the Countess-Duchess of Benavente. This park is one of the most outstanding and exclusive examples of the Spanish landscape garden. Its stage, full of romanticism, synthesizes Italian and French influences. You can admire a delightful "serpentine" estuary with lake and island, the pier or "reed house", the Bacchus temple, the "old house", the fort, the hermitage or the "beekeeper", an incredible pavilion just to behold bee activity. The palace, the delicate work of Antonio and Martín López Aguado, has already opened numerous paintings by Goya. The visit is particularly recommended in spring, which is when we were there, when the walk takes place among the scent of lilac woods and rose waterfalls.

If you are looking for plans in Madrid to enjoy the city in the summer, this guided tour of Parque El Capricho is perfect to endure the hot mornings. Surrounded by vegetation, tree-lined paths, shadows everywhere and even a maze of bushes, in the domains of the Duchess of Osuna there is space for a navigable estuary, a fountain adorned with dolphins and frogs and even a lagoon.

In Madrid today, you can find many original restaurants ideal for a different dinner. You have restaurants and bars with live shows (e.g. Zodiac), bars for a drink with a coat (IceBar Madrid), restaurants with really cool decor (like Taxi to Manhattan) or restaurants where you can even dine seated (the Mezklum). But don't forget to eat the incredible Spanish empanadas, which are delicious and very tasty, you can find them for 2 euros.
