Madrid’s Salamanca district is a highly sought after, upmarket area of the capital just north of the Parque del Buen Retiro. With exceptional public transport links and boasting magnificent early 20th century Spanish architecture, the neighbourhood is popular with both business and leisure guests. Just a short walk away on foot or via the metro is the iconic Paseo del Prado area of the city, home to some of the most highly regarded art institutions in the world. Known as the ‘Golden Triangle’, the Reina Sofia Museum, Prado Museum and Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum are acclaimed art museums home to masterpieces by the likes of Picasso, Dali, Titian and Goya. As some of Madrid’s premier cultural destinations, the museums attract millions of tourists each year and are a must-see for art enthusiasts.
Hotel guests can immerse themselves in Spanish culture by paying a visit to what is popularly considered the home of Spanish bullfighting, the Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas. Established as a large bullring with a capacity of 25,000 in 1931, the Las Ventas has been in operation ever since and to this day hosts bullfights every Sunday during the season from March to October. Even if tourists do not have the stomach to witness a fight, the arena is a must-see if not for its impressive architecture and historical significance alone.
A trip to Madrid would be incomplete without enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the Parque del Buen Retiro, the largest public park in the capital. Perfect for couples or young families wishing to experience the great outdoors in the heart of the city, the park boasts over 350 acres of pristine parkland, beautiful sculptures, art galleries and a large boating lake.
