Life in Madrid is lived in crowded streets and noisy cafés, where talking, toasting, and tapa-tasting last long into the night. The capital's endless energy is hard to resist, and its sociable style invites you to jump right in.
Madrid's other main attraction is its unsurpassed collection of art by some of the world's great masters, among them Goya, El Greco, Velázquez, Picasso, and Dalí. Nowhere else will you find such a concentration of masterpieces as in the three museums — the Prado, the Reina Sofía, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza — that make up Madrid's so-called Paseo del Arte (Art Walk).
Modern-day Madrid sprawls northward in block after block of dreary, high-rise brick apartment and office buildings. The population of three million is also moving into surrounding villages and new suburbs, creating traffic problems in and around the city. These new quarters and many of Madrid's crumbling old residential neighborhoods may seem unprepossessing, but don't be put off by first impressions. Much of the city's appeal comes from its vivacious people and the electricity they generate, whether at play in bars and clubs or at work in Spain's finance, advertising, television, and film industries, all headquartered here.
Poised on a plateau 2,120 ft above sea level, Madrid is the highest capital in Europe. It can thus be one of the world's hottest cities in summer, and freezing cold in winter. Spring and summer are the best times to visit, when balmy evenings have everyone in town lingering at outdoor cafés; but each season has its own charms. In winter, steamy café windows and all-night street festivals beckon, and the blue skies are particularly crisp and bright — and that's when Madrid is, according to a local bumper sticker, the next best place to heaven.
