Madrid City Guide
Madrid is probably the most underrated capital of Europe. Less
cosmopolitan than Barcelona and less charming than Seville it seems
to be economic force and administrative hub only. This prejudice
is defied the minute you arrive.
Madrid's greatest force are the locals: energetic, joyful
and supremely tolerant they work and party hard and sleep little.
Many palaces and boulevards esp. near central 'Puerta del Sol'
are historic manifestations of Habsburgs power. Franco's unpopular
dictatorship has been a halting force now overcome by an embrace
of modernity and avant-garde. 'Museo de Prado' is one of
the world's finest collections of Goya, Velázquez and other
ancient masters. 'Reina Sofia' features the vanguard of early 20th
century art. Museum Thyssen-Bornemisza completes this cultural triangle.
Madrid's stadium fits up to 75.000 fans of notorious soccer team
Real Madrid. Other favorite pastimes include bullfighting,
partying, shopping and dining out. Madrid's hinterland and sierras
offers a multitude of outdoors activities.

impressive staff list including José Ortega y Gasset. Carlos
III university was founded in 1989 and is the youngest and most
