Madrid Travel guide
Madrid : Michelin's recommendations
At the heart of Spain, backed by the foothills of the Sierra de Guadarrama, Madrid, one of Europe’s youngest capitals, is a dynamic city with a welcoming atmosphere. Its dynastic heritage, from the Habsburgs and Bourbons, has resulted in an exceptional artistic legacy, which can be best admired at the Prado, Thyssen-Bornemisza and Reina Sofía museums. Birthplace of the post “movida” movement at the end of the Franco period, this vibrant city has seen huge growth in recent decades.
