what to see and do in madrid

The variety of cultural activities in Madrid is our best business card

According to a Madrid City hall survey, the most relevant reason for tourits to visit Madrid is our vast heritage and the quality of our museums. We are really proud of this, to be honest. However, we are Nakamad, and we want you to enjoy all different cultural activities in Madrid, specially the most unknown spots and hidden gems of art.

Street art

If you are looking for interesting Madrid activities, you could stroll through the city and admire street art creations, specially at Lavapies and la Latina neighborhood. Some of them are considered pieces of art and icons of the city.

Summer cinema

Yeah, temperature can be really hot in Madrid, even at night! So grab something to drink and lets go to open air cinemas (don´t worry, most of the movies are subtitled or Original Version).

“Noches del Botánico” (Nights of the Botanical Gardens)

These could be considered as one of the most charming Madrid activities. Almost every night, there are concerts in a magical place: the Royal Botanical Gardens.

Art galleries & exhibitions

There are more than 50 of these places full of innovation and creativity, in an alternative network spread for all the city. Some of them are free, others are installed in open air!

Madrid Planetarium

Have you ever heard our motto “from Madrid to the sky?”. Maybe a visit to the Planetarium and the surroundings park could explain why.

And of course, the best museums in Madrid

We consider them as “typical tourism stuff”, but it can´t be denied that we are also proud of our “art triangle”: El Prado national museum, Queen Sofia Madrid art museum and Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum. If it is your first time in Madrid, don´t worry: we will include them (if you want to) in your nakaplan.

And this is also a sample of all cultural activities in Madrid that are waiting for you. Remember that you can tell us what are you into or not: classic, modern, abstract, alternative,…just ask for it, and we will do our best to make a plan full of art!
