Madrid is known for its cultural and artistic heritage, lively nightlife, and a dynamic culinary scene.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Alcazar of Segovia and Puerta de Bisagra. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Madrid: Toledo (El Transito Synagogue and Sephardic Museum, Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes, &more), Catedral de Segovia (in Segovia) and Mina Romana de Lapis Specularis de La Mora Encantada (in Torrejoncillo del Rey). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Prado National Museum, walk around Parque del Retiro, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathedral of Avila, and admire the striking features of Royal Palace of Madrid.
