Comunidad de Madrid
Madrid is one of the world’s leading destinations for congress tourism and in recent years it has also been a preferred destination as a cruise extension for foreigners. It offers excellent flight connections, high quality hotels and leisure facilities together with a rail infrastructure with high-speed trains which quickly connect the main cruise ports of Spain with Madrid City.
The Region of Madrid has something for everyone, whatever your age, whatever your preferences: culture, leisure, nature, shopping, cuisine and much, much more.
A visit to Madrid is always more than just a visit. It is an immersion in art, with a choice of the many exhibitions on show at the best museums, such as those on the Paseo del Arte, with the Prado Museum, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the Reina Sofía Museum.
Furthermore, within a radius of just 50 km from the capital city there are three sites whose rich historical legacy have earned them UNESCO World Heritage status: Alcalá de Henares, Aranjuez and San Lorenzo de El Escorial as well the Montejo Beech Forest, Hayedo de Montejo, recognised as Natural World Heritage.
But Madrid is also about food, about tasting a delicious meal in some of its fashionable restaurants, 24 restaurants with 30 Michelin stars in the region as a whole; and traditional markets turned into exquisite delicatessen centres where tradition and innovation come together at the table it’s about being a part of Europe’s most vibrant leisure scene, whether by day or by night (leisure parks, live shows, live music, discos, flamenco venues, cocktail bars and much more).
And the Madrid Community is a privileged shopping destination, where visitors will find endless retail options with high quality brands. From bohemian designs and the latest trends in the districts of Malasaña, Chueca, Triball and Salesas, to a world of luxury designers in the Barrio de Salamanca or Galería Canalejas. And a huge number of shopping centres which combine shopping, cuisine and leisure, and the many outlets where we can shop for designer brands at affordable prices.
