With three world class museums, a world renowned opera house and two palaces, Madrid is an outstandingly culturally rich destination.

A diverse range of galleries exhibit art from European Masters to performance art. Steeped in tradition, Madrid’s legendary Fiestas cannot be missed, especially San Isidro which infamously marks the beginning of the Bull Fighting Season. Madrid’s streets buzz with activity and at times the city’s leafy open spaces are a welcome retreat. An extraordinary and unexpected green space, the ‘Forest of Remembrance’, is situated inside Atocha Station. Designed by Rafael Moneo, the temperature-controlled garden consists of 192 olive and cypress trees. Retiro Park, close to the museums and grand hotels, is a beautiful expanse and features a striking Crystal Palace. Madrid’s affluence is evident among the sumptuous boutiques of the Salamanca district and the influx of five-star design hotels and luxurious restaurants. Alongside experimental gastronomic creations, high-end traditional restaurants flourish, serving authentic Spanish delicacies. It is the contrast of the avant-garde with rich tradition that makes visiting Madrid a must for the Elite Traveler.
