The city, that wistfully looked back to the 80´s and the “Movida”, is nowadays positioned as one of the most attractive, modern european capital.
Since a few years ago, trips to Madrid have not stopped increasing. And many of you are just wondering why Madrid deserves your attention amongst all magic places of Spain (and of Europe, that´s nothing!). However, you should know that under these skies, there is much magic to discover…
A different and alternative Madrid for any of us
Madrid attractions and sightseeing options are almost unlimited. Those years of economic crisis which silenced the city have been left behind, and now we are living a new blooming spring full of creativity and opportunities. Music festival such as MAD COOL, the Feria del Libro, (Book Fair), sport events like UEFA Champions League final,…or less mainstreamed options such as Berenice Abbott retrospective, Catfish & The Bottlemen live concert, Pez St. Party in Malasaña Madrid neighborhood,…There are so many cool things to do in Madrid, things that you love, that would put a satisfaction smile in your face 😉
More than 10 million tourists visited us in 2018
And almost the 30% of them felt driven by our heritage, Madrid art Museums and its culture. However, if you feel like a real Nakamad person and need alternative things to do in Madrid, don´t worry: more than 150.000 music and audiovisual activities are performed in the city every year. Special mention for “Madrid´s Broadway”: we are the 3rd world destination of musical tourism, just before New York and London (more than 3 million tickets are sold every year). Sounds good, isn´t it?
21 Michelin star awarded restaurants in Madrid
Maybe this makes visitors to consider Madrid cuisine as one of the most valued aspect of the city. Or maybe they just knew which were the best tapas bars in Madrid, or maybe they just strolled by all Madrid neighborhoods searching for the best “bocata de calamares” (fried squid sándwich). Who knows…
“Just” 97.58 % of the tourists recommended Madrid
And we so proud of it. But why people are loving so much our “villa”?
