Heey guys, today i arrived from a trip to Madrid, the capital of Spain. I knew Madrid was nice but what i saw was just in one word: AMAZING!

Why visitting Madrid? You can visit Madrid for her buildings (Old Madrid looks very nice with her small streets, different colors of buildings, Paintings at buildings and etc...)

You can visit it for the monuments, you will see a important one at almost every square.

The people, they will help you with everything you need.

And so many more...

I think i saw everything you MUST see in Madrid and maybe even more?

You have to see the following things when visitting Madrid for sure:

-Plaza Mayor
-Puerta Del Sol (You will find the Landmark of Madrid over there)
-Gran Via (The Metropolis building is amazing!)
-Palacio Real (A HUGE palace)
-Almudena Cathedral
-Plaza de Oriente (With her Teatre Real and monuments of all the EX kings of
Palacio Real)
-Plaza de Espana (With her 2 skyscrapers and HUGE monument)
-Puerta de Alcala
-Parque de Retiro (Also a HUGE monument over there)
-Plaza de Cibeles (A beautifull fountain in the middle)
-Plaza de Colon (A Monument of Columbus)

Heyy! I haven't been to Las Ventas, what a nice place!

Madrid is indeed a very interesting cities, I've been to all the places you said in the beginning of your thread and most of them are really amazing.

I don't see how one cannot like Madrid. And also, it has the greatest energy of all cities I've ever been to.
