20. Gran Via

City Landmark

Madrid's grand avenue, Gran Va, which rises through the city's center from Plaza de Espaa before dropping to Calle de Alcalá, is a tough thing to imagine without. It wasn't actually constructed until 1910, though, after being plowed through a labyrinth of ages-old passageways. Gran Via, Madrid's main thoroughfare, is home to approximately twice as many businesses as there are homes for them; over 13,000 people work there, and up to 60,000 vehicles pass through it every day.

Tip: Make sure to stop by this location at least once while you are in Madrid because it offers tourists every urban amenity and necessity they could possibly need.

Attractions in Madrid - Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando
Attractions in Madrid - Plaza de Oriente

22. Plaza de Oriente

City Square

This charming square, one of central Madrid's most appealing, is home to a royal palace that once aspired to be the Spanish Versailles, upscale cafes guarded by apartments that cost the equivalent of a royal salary, and the Teatro Real, Madrid's opera house and one of Spain's temples to high culture. The square that the palace looks out onto is in the center of a statue of Felipe IV riding a horse. Velázquez designed it, and it's the best place to do so because there are amazing views wherever you look.

Tip: Because it is lively all year long and doesn't get overly crowded, this is one of the best areas in Madrid to visit if you want to experience the city's vibe.

Attractions in Madrid -  Ermita de San Antonio de la Florida
Attractions in Madrid - El Rastro de Madrid

24. El Rastro de Madrid


Spending a Sunday morning at El Rastro, the biggest flea market in Europe is a tradition in Madrid. The bustling Sunday flea market was primarily a meat market in the 17th and 18th centuries. Due to the fact that everyone in Madrid is here searching for a deal on Sunday mornings, it is the place to be. Making your way down the hill and through the maze of streets might easily take the entire morning. The main products are cheap apparel, luggage, flamenco albums from the past, and old pictures of Madrid.

Tip: An additional major draw is antiques, which can be found in abundance in Nuevas Galeras and Galeras Piquer. Monday through Saturday, the majority of the shops are open from 10 am to 2 pm and from 5 pm to 8 pm.

Attractions in Madrid -  Palacio de Cristal
Attractions in Madrid - Barrio de Las Letras

26. Barrio de Las Letras


The area that extends down the hill east of Plaza de Santa Ana is renowned as the Barrio de las Letras because writers lived here during Spain's golden period of the 16th and 17th centuries. Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, the author of Don Quijote, was born and died on Calle de Cervantes 2 in Madrid and spent the majority of his adult life there. The convent, where nuns continue to live in isolation and are still housed there, is off-limits to visitors; forensic archaeologists finally found Cervantes' remains in 2015.

Tip: Reserving a day for Barrio de las Letras is recommended because it is one of the most significant areas to see while in Madrid.

Attractions in Madrid - Plaza de la Puerta del Sol

28. Plaza de la Puerta del Sol

City Square

The geographical center of Spain is an attractive, bustling hemisphere of elaborate facades. The fact that everyone here is always heading someplace by bus, metro, or foot makes it a crossroads above all else. Although it's hard to fathom now, the Puerta del Sol once served as Madrid's eastern entryway. Several bus and metro lines converge here, making it difficult for anyone utilizing a form of public transportation to avoid visiting this square.

Why Visit: This is one of the best places in Madrid to go during celebrations because both locals and tourists congregate here to mark almost every occasion.

Attractions in Madrid - Plaza de La Cibeles

30. Plaza de La Cibeles

Sightseeing | Leisure

Out of all the enormous roundabouts that border the Paseo del Prado, the Plaza de la Cibeles is the one that most evokes the majesty of imperial Madrid. The exquisite Cybele fountain in the midst of the plaza is one of Madrid's most beautiful fountains. Since Ventura Rodriguez constructed the fountain in 1780, it has become a popular attraction in Madrid. The Puerta de Alcalá and, even better, the Edificio Metrópolis can both be seen from Plaza de la Cibeles.

Why Visit: The spectacular Palacio de Comunicaciones is the pinnacle of achievement. Other well-known buildings that surround the plaza include the Palacio de Linares, the national Banco de Espaa, and the Palacio Buenavista.
