3. The Teatro Real

Opposite the Royal Palace, you will find the Opera Theatre (Teatro Real in Spanish), another must-see attraction in Madrid.

Built between 1817 and 1850, it’s one of Europe’s finest operas thanks to its exceptional acoustics. If you want to spend an evening at the opera, be prepared to pay a premium for the experience, as the cheaper seats don’t offer a full view of the stage.

Madrid’s Teatro Real has hosted the greatest opera singers and the high quality program varies often, so check the official website for the schedule, prices, and to book your ticket online.

And if you’re not up for a show, you have another option to discover the inside of the Teatro Real: you can book tickets to visit the opera house during the day, with an audio guide.

You will thus be able to discover the dressing rooms, theatre rooms and all exhibition halls.

Tickets need to be booked directly here.

All information can be found on the Teatro Real’s official website.

4. Visit the Prado Museum

The Prado Museum (Museo del Prado in Spanish) ranks among the world’s greatest museums and is a top tourist attraction in Madrid.

It houses a huge collection of paintings, mainly from Europe, spanning from the 14th to the 19th century. Inside the museum, you will be able to admire works from famous painters such as Francisco Goya, Diego Velázquez, and Hieronymus Bosch.

If you’re an art lover, you will be happy to learn that this museum also displays 6400 drawings and 3000 prints, setting it apart from typical museums that only offer paintings.

Voyage Tips - Advice

This cathedral was built in two prevailing styles of the time: its interior is in the Gothic style, while the exterior is classically inspired.

This results in a curious and original monument, not to be missed during your stay in Madrid. Interestingly, the Almudena Cathedral was consecrated in 1993 by Pope John Paul II!

10. The Temple of Amon (Debod)

For a touch of Africa in the heart of Madrid, head to the Temple of Amon, also known as the Temple of Debod. Here, you’ll find 2200-year-old Egyptian ruins authentically reconstructed.

This unique monument is one of my favorites for several reasons: entrance is free, it’s highly photogenic (especially at dusk), and the Temple of Debod offers a glimpse into Egyptian civilization for those who can’t travel there.

11. Las Ventas Bullring

The most significant bullring in Madrid and the third largest in the world, Las Ventas was built in 1930.

It can host up to 24,000 people and is the setting for bullfights, a famous aspect of Spanish culture. While this tradition faces ethical criticisms, Madrid locals still gather here, mainly during the Community Fair in May and the San Isidro Fair in June.

14. Cybele Palace

The Cybele Palace (Palacio de Cibeles), formerly known as the “Palace of Communications,” is one of Madrid’s most impressive monuments due to its incredible architecture.

It currently serves as the city hall but also houses the “CentroCentro,” a cultural center offering free exhibitions. During your visit, don’t miss the Crystal Gallery, a room topped with an impressive glass vault.

On the eighth floor (paid access), you can even go up to the observatory and enjoy a 360-degree panorama over the city of Madrid.

Cybele Palace is located in the Paseo del Arte neighborhood on Cybele Square, one of Madrid’s most lively and well-known squares.

15. Experience the Rhythm of Flamenco

 During your stay in Madrid, I highly recommend you to attend a flamenco show

Listed as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage, flamenco is a traditional dance with Madrid as its capital.

Choose a “tablao”, the venue for flamenco performances, and enjoy the enchanting and passionate rhythm of the dance and song. One of the most famous shows takes place at the Torres Bermejas tablao.

To attend a performance, you need to book your seats in advance here:

Voyage Tips - Advice

If Torres Bermejas is fully booked, I also recommend another renowned venue: Café Zyriab. They also offer a high quality show, and the setting is more intimate.

Tickets can be booked right here!

16. Watch the Changing of the Guard

For a dive into royal Madrid, head to the Royal Palace of Madrid on the first Wednesday of the month.

You’ll have the privilege of witnessing a remarkable spectacle: the changeover of more than 400 men and 100 horses, symbolizing the changing of the guard.

Lancers and halberdiers parade before the spectators, accompanied by musicians, fifers, and drummers.

This is an original activity I recommend if you’re lucky enough to be in Madrid at the right time.

Voyage Tips - Advice

Note that there’s also a “simpler” changing of the guard every Wednesday and Saturday morning. The first Wednesday of the month features a special, “solemn changing of the Guard.”

17. Visit the San Miguel Market

The San Miguel Market (Mercado de San Miguel in Spanish), once a traditional market, has become a trendy spot for local cuisine thanks to an innovative concept: you can taste products for free or for less than a euro before deciding to buy them!

So, get ready to enjoy cheeses, fruits, vegetables, charcuteries, seafood, and sushi, as well as ice cream, chocolates, and fresh fruit juices…

The building features a glass structure, allowing sunlight to reach the stalls and giving the market a special atmosphere.

If you’re thinking about food shopping, don’t hesitate to go to San Miguel Market!

18. Getting a Bird’s-Eye View at Círculo de Bellas Artes

If you want to rise above and get an overview of Madrid, head to the Círculo de Bellas Artes.

20. What to Do in Madrid at Night

In Madrid, the day doesn’t end with the sunset!

At night, the terraces of bars and restaurants come alive. Join the locals enjoying a sangria with some tapas, and you’ll truly discover the soul of the city.

If you’re not tired, there’s no shortage of nighttime activities: the Chueca district, in particular, is home to several relaxed nightclubs where you can let loose and dance until dawn.

21 – Savoring Chocolate Churros

For those with a sweet tooth, this Spanish specialty is a must-try: the famous Chocolate Churros are a real institution, an essential part of Spanish street gastronomy!

The thick, rich chocolate in which you dip hot, golden churros leaves deliciously sweet memories.

If you’re in Madrid and want to try the very best, do what I did and head to Chocolatería San Ginés: open 24/7 since 1894, this place offers the best chocolate con churros in the city.

Be prepared to wait, as the place is highly popular with both locals and tourists.

Here are the features of the main districts:

Centro (Sol – Gran Via)

The heart of tourism in Madrid, many tourist routes start from this district.

It’s also the “zero point” of the country, located at Puerta del Sol, one of the city’s liveliest squares. Symbolically, it’s the kilometer 0 point of all Spanish roads and thus the center of Spain.


This central district is where you’ll find Plaza Mayor.

It’s where the atmosphere is most lively in the evening, with its bars full of young Madrilenians.

Paseo Del Arte

As its name suggests, this is the heart of Madrid’s cultural life.

The 3 main museums of the city are located here, along with an architectural jewel of Madrid, the Palacio de Cibeles:

Best things to do in Paseo del Arte:


It’s the cosmopolitan and popular neighborhood of Madrid.

Lively at all hours, this friendly area immerses you in the daily life of locals, chatting at their doorstep, hanging laundry on their balconies, or playing ball in the alleys.

For dining, the Lavapiés neighborhood is packed with international eateries: African, Turkish, Chinese, Italian, etc. Be aware of pickpockets and keep an eye on your valuables.


Madrid’s version of New York‘s Soho or London‘s Camden Town, the hippie and popular Malasaña offers great shopping opportunities, and its relaxed atmosphere is definitely worth experiencing.


This is the city’s trendy gay neighborhood, featuring several gay nightclubs.

But Chueca is also a party hotspot for everyone, with its many bars and nightclubs where young people gather after sunset.

My Impressions of Madrid

My few days in Madrid left an excellent impression on me.

Madrid, a city bursting with activities, blends warmth and liveliness, tradition and modernity, captivating me more each day. I loved wandering its cobbled streets, stumbling upon churches, parks, palaces

So, I can only recommend spending a few days exploring the Spanish capital. The cultural richness of Madrid, a city unfairly overlooked by tourists (who usually prefer going to Barcelona) greatly appealed to me. In some ways, exploring it reminded me of my visit to Rome.

And you, what do you plan to visit in Madrid?
