Places in spain madrid
As every good tourist knows, you have to know the capital of every country you visit. In this case, visiting Madrid is essential for us because we can find the most important museums in the country, stroll through the neighborhoods of a city that never sleeps and of course to visit in one day trips in cities as important for tourism as Segovia, Toledo, Avila and Cuenca.
Visiting places such as the Reina Sofia Museum, the Prado Museum, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, the Plaza Mayor, the Royal Palace of Madrid, the Plaza Puerta del Sol, the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium and the Sunday market El Rastro, in the Barrio de la Latina, is an essential part of our trip.
But the city of Granada is much more than its imposing Alhambra, walking around its surroundings, the medieval neighborhood El Albaicin, the Cathedral, the historic center, the Jewish quarter El Realejo, the neighborhood with cave dwellings El Sacromonte, and La Cartuja de Granada, will make this city a great memory in your memory.
Walking through the main monuments and getting lost in its streets is an essential part of the visit. We recommend you to get to know it with the help of any of the guided tours in Seville that are made daily.
This is a route that visits the two main cities of the country and that, geographically, covers a bit of everything: from the center (Madrid, Segovia, Toledo), from the south (Granada, Seville, Cordoba), from the Mediterranean (Barcelona) and from the north (San Sebastian/Bilbao).
Summers are, in general, quite hot, reaching temperatures of up to 35-40 degrees in some places (center and south of the peninsula, in inland areas, in cities like Madrid, Toledo, Seville, Cordoba or Granada). The north has milder temperatures.
In the Gothic Quarter of the city are architectural gems such as the Cathedral of Santa Cruz and Santa Eulalia, the Plaza de San Jaime, the Palace of the Generalitat and the Museum of History of Barcelona.
Among the former are the bridge and church of San Antón and the City Hall building, while among the modern buildings are the Iberdrola Tower, the Isozaki Towers and the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao.
The Alameda Principal of Malaga is a tree-lined avenue with ficus trees, which houses beautiful buildings and works, such as the monument to the Marquis of Larios, the fountain of Genoa, the building La Equitativa, the Cajamar building and the government headquarters of the Junta de Andalucia.
Lonely travelers, archeology lovers, can visit the Prehistoric Park and the Cerro del Villar site in Malaga, where a Phoenician city of important proportions was discovered.
In these festivities can also be seen the love for bullfighting, one of the oldest activities nationwide, with a bullring, the Real Maestranza, which is one of the most visited monuments of the city.
