Spain’s capital city Madrid, is situated close to the geographical center of the country, and has a population of over three million people. The origins of the city date back to AD 852, when the Moors built a fortress near the Manzanares River. Madrid is a well-rounded travel destination rich in history and culture. With its world renowned museums, parks, shopping, entertainment, and gastronomy, this city has something for everyone. Choose holiday accommodations in a vacation rental property, apartment rental, villa rental or condo rental in Madrid and let Owner Direct Vacation Rentals be the ones to help you with your accommodation.

During the peak summer months in Madrid, the temperature can easily reach 40ºC, but this is made slightly more bearable by the low humidity levels. At 2,188 feet Madrid is the highest European capital. Summer in Madrid can be very hot, so hot that it is in fact the fourth hottest city in all of Europe. However, due to its privileged location and high altitude there are many welcome breaks from the heat in the form of low humidity and cooler evenings. The balmy summer evenings are a great time to enjoy Madrid’s legendary active nightlife. The city plays host to the largest number of bars per capita of any European city. In the winter months the minimum temperatures often fall below freezing point, although it rarely snows in the city itself. Apartment rentals, villa rentals, vacation rentals, condo rentals and accommodations are available through Owner Direct.

Madrid enjoys the most extensive areas of parks and gardens of all European cities, which include more than 40 parks within its city limits. The Retiro is perhaps Madrid's best known park. It occupies 120 hectares of land in the very center of Madrid. Tourists can enjoy this beautiful park which has a rose garden, a recreation lake where paddle and rowing boats can be rented. Around the lake there’s a large variety of shows and street theatre that take place on the weekends. Rent holiday lodging directly from owners of villas, condo rentals, vacation rentals, cabins, cottages, apartment rentals, and villa rentals.

Other landmarks worth noting include the splendid Plaza Mayor, a beautiful 17th century square filled with café’s and craft shops, and the vast and lavish Palacio Real which was home to Spanish royalty until 1931.

Madrid News and Events

Annual Events in Madrid, Spain

Reyes (Three Kings) (January)
On the evening of 5 January, Noche de Reyes, thousands of children and their parents line up along C/Alcalá to watch the annual cabalgata (parade).
Semana Santa (Holy Week) (March/April)
Easter is usually a good time to be in Madrid, as many madrileños get out of town for the long weekend, and the weather is usually fine. In Madrid and nearby towns, there are many parish processions in which hooded penitentes schlep figures of Christ and the Virgin around.
Fiesta del Trabajo (May Day) (May)
The largest May Day march, attracting upwards of 60,000 people.
San Isidro (May)
This is the time to see madrileños doing what they do best: taking to the streets and having a rollicking good knees-up. The fiestas celebrate San Isidro, Madrid's patron saint, a humble 12th-century labourer and well-digger to whom all manner of miracles are attributed and whose wife, María de la Cabeza, was also canonised, making them the only sainted couple in history. The fiestas are officially declared open and nightly gigs are held (with the odd classical performance thrown in) at the Plaza Mayor.

About Madrid Travel Guide: The capital of Spain, located in the heart of the peninsula and right in the center of the Castillian plain 646 meters above sea level, has a population of over three million. A cosmopolitan city, a business center, headquarters for the Public Administration, Government, Spanish Parliament and the home of the Spanish Royal Family, Madrid also plays a major role in both the banking and industrial sectors. Most of its industry is located in the Southern fringe of the city, where important textile, food and metal working factories are clustered. Madrid is characterized by intense cultural and artistic activity and a very lively nightlife.

10 best things to do in Madrid: a local's guide
by Tripbod Inés
www.skyscanner.net/news/10-best-things-do-madrid-locals-guide

From the best places for real-deal tapas to the hottest places to hang out and the coolest places to chill out, take a tour of 10 exciting things to do in the Spanish capital with a native Madrilenian.

1. San Ginés: hot chocolate

Founded in 1894, San Ginés chocolaterie is the perfect place to enjoy Madrid's famous breakfast: chocolate and churros. Open 24 hours every day, it's definitely worth a visit even if it's almost always full. If you're patient you'll find a seat sooner or later. I love to sit on one of those green couches, sipping dense chocolate while I admire the decoration of the room and watch people come and go. Better not come too early for breakfast, as one consolidated tradition in Madrid is having chocolate and churros after a loooong night out! I also recommend stopping by La Mallorquina patisserie, just a few blocks away, to get some napolitanas.

2. Museo del Prado: saints and sinners

Renowned as the world's largest art gallery, Prado Museum was opened in 1819 and contains over 9,000 artworks. As an art lover, I tend to let myself drop in on weekday afternoons before 5pm, when it is less crowded. Sometimes I attend the educational activities that take place daily: these are free and you can sign up for them at Jerónimos building 15 minutes in advance, but you need to understand Spanish. The Museum also holds temporary exhibitions of artworks by prestigious artists or pieces from other museums around the world. But I prefer to laze around the permanent collection, looking for pigs dressed as nuns and saints being breastfed by the Virgin Mary. If you have the time, make sure to visit the nearby Thyssen, Reina Sofía and Archaeological Museums as well.

3. Ateneo de Madrid: art, science and culture

Virtually unknown to the general public, Spaniards included, this hidden gem is one of my favourite places to read, study and rest in Madrid. When I say hidden I don't mean it idly: the entrance generally goes unnoticed by passers-by. Founded in 1835, this institution holds the second largest library in Spain, only surpassed by the National Library, and it has witnessed many historical events, as this was the cradle of liberal movements and Masonic meetings. I love its smell of old books, wood and paintings. You need to be a fellow to study at the library, but everybody can attend the numerous concerts, exhibitions, lectures, film series and plays that take place throughout the year paying a small fee. Definitely worth a visit.

4. La Latina: great barrio for tapas

Tapear: one of those Spanish words that can't be translated to English. You go to a bar and ask for a drink. The waiter brings not just the drink but some good food as well. You think they're going to charge you for that, but don't worry, it's free! In Spain you ask for a drink, you get a tapa. La Latina is a good area to go and find tapas in Madrid. Most people like to go round the bars, looking for the best ones, of which there are many. If you're lucky, you can have lunch paying for just two or three drinks! Personally I prefer to sit on a terrace with friends, enjoying delicious food and good conversation for hours.

5. El Retiro: green escape in the middle of the city

When I need a mental break from the streets, a walk through El Retiro transports me to the loveliness of 18th-century palace gardens. My favourite place is the Crystal Palace and its surroundings, where I love to sit on the grass with a book, poking my head up once in a while to admire the play of light, shadow and colour on the pond. There are also ducks, turtles and plenty of birds to watch, and stands to buy ice-cream or snacks; and the palace holds modern art exhibitions that are interesting to see. If you're looking for liveliness, there are always activities, exhibitions, concerts, puppet shows, street performers and fortune tellers in other areas of the park, besides an annual Book Fair.

6. Teatro de la Zarzuela: quintessential Spanish experience

One of my all-time favourite personal traditions is an annual visit to La Zarzuela. Practically unknown to non-Spanish speakers, zarzuela is the Spanish musical theatre genre, combining operetta and spoken parts. This is quintessential Spanish classical music, and Teatro de la Zarzuela is the place to enjoy it: a beautiful 19th-century theatre, live instrumentalists, dozens and dozens of performers, first-rate singers, superb staging and reasonable prices. Even friends who don't understand Spanish have loved the music, costumes, scenery and dancing. The fact that the sound is all acoustic, with no body microphones used, adds charm to this not-to-be-missed experience: Spain as it used to be. Concerts, ballet, opera and guided visits are also available.

7. Mercado de San Miguel: food from €1

An old traditional market converted into a modern gastronomic experience, its greatest asset is you can taste samples of food for very little money, sometimes even for free, before deciding whether to buy this or that. There's a huge variety of food: cold meat, cheese, fruit, vegetables, sushi, seafood, chocolates, frozen yogurt, juices, sangria, wine… all deliciously tasty and fresh. I love to walk around enjoying mouth-watering smells and flavours, while natural light floods the building, emphasizing the beauty of its iron and glass structure. Always full, it is nevertheless another great place for tapas, very lively and really close to Plaza Mayor.

8. Microteatro por Dinero: alternative theatre

Created in 2009 as a theatrical experiment, Microteatro was a total success from the beginning, and it's indisputably one of the hottest places in Madrid nowadays. Five plays take place simultaneously within the small rooms where prostitutes worked in this former brothel. I love having the chance to experience theatre in a totally innovative way, as actors and public interact in a limited space. Plays are 15 minutes long at €4 each, with several performances per day. I like to come here with my actor friends: we book tickets, ask for a drink at the bar and have a good conversation between each play, spotting famous faces more than once. Always crowded, especially on weekends, you must come early as tickets sell out very quickly.

9. Templo de Debod: Egypt with a view

A gift to Spain in 1968, this 2200-year-old Egyptian temple dedicated to Amon and Isis is located on a hill over Casa de Campo and is, without a doubt, my favourite view in Madrid. Stunningly beautiful sunsets behind an illuminated temple that is reflected in the water makes this the perfect spot for pictures. By day the views to the Royal Palace and cathedral on one side and Casa de Campo and the mountains on the other are also worth enjoying. This is one of my favourite places to go for a picnic, too, as there is a nice park surrounding the temple. Not to be missed!

10. Lavapiés: around the world in one dinner

Arguably the most genuine neighbourhood in Madrid, Lavapiés is the place to go for dinner. With over 50% of its population being non-Spanish, here you can find any kind of food: Chinese, Moroccan, Thai, Indian, Senegalese, Greek or a Cuban delicatessen, all serving great food for little money. I love to come here at night, when there's a great atmosphere of bars, tapas, terraces and multiculturalism, and enjoy a nice couscous for only €8. Another option is spending an evening with friends in an Arabian tearoom. One of my favourite events is Tapapiés, a tapas' fair that takes place in October: tapas and beer for only €1 each. Just get ready for a whole lot of smoke as many Spaniards smoke like chimneys, and try not to look like a tourist!
