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)

Thank you for your pics, I enjoyed them a lot. They brought me some very nice memories of Madrid.

By the way, I love this building (you have a good eye, because it's not a famous one):

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.

Does Madrid get as many foreign visitors as Barcelona? I always though of Madrid as being more of a business city than a tourist destination. Looks very nice with some beautiful architecture.

You don't need VISA to enter in Spain if you have a canadian passport and your stay doesn't exceed 90 days.

Anyway, great pics Ralphkke!!
