The Madrid region
MADRID: "From Madrid to Heaven"
Madrid, the capital of Spain since 1562, is also the geographical center of the Iberian Peninsula. Its altitude, being on a plateau, and proximity to the mountains that surround it, influencing its climate, characterized by warm summers and cool winters.
As it is expected, it is certainly a city of great and impressive monumentality, which among its highlights has a very peculiar historical center, built in the days when the Habsburg dynasty reigned in Spain, hence the name "Madrid of Habsburg ", and of course, the Museo del Prado, one of the most important museums worldwide.
Although only for its cultural worth a visit, is also a capital Madrid exceptionally lively. His glittering nightlife, with many bars, pubs, café-theaters and nightclubs open late into the morning, made ??famous many years.
The Medieval Madrid
Starting the tour in the Moorish Quarter, which hosted a historic Arab Court, you get to La Casa del Pastor, First City of Madrid and Toledo. From here we will be well placed for exploring the three places that formed Medieval Madrid: La Plaza de la Paja, which was the commercial center, Plaza de San Andres, where he was one of the oldest parishes in the city, and the Green Cross Square, where the horses were coming through the "Puerta de Moros".
Then, through two Mudejar buildings, San Nicolas de los Servite and the Tower of San Pedro el Viejo, one arrives at the House of Lujanes, located in the Plaza de la Villa.
The Hapsburg Madrid
This is the name given to Madrid from the time of the Habsburg dynasty ruled Spain. This reign began with Charles I, who enriched the city with palaces and monuments. Later, when Philip II made it the capital of Spain, the city grew significantly. The journey through the Renaissance and Baroque buildings from this period is perhaps one of the most picturesque and Madrid:
We started in the Puerta del Sol, Km 0 of Spanish roads. This cheerful and lively square can be considered the heart of Madrid. Continuing along the picturesque narrow crowded streets leads to the square where the convent of the Barefoot Royals, then very close to the Royal Palace, the Monastery of the Incarnation and the Captaincy General, to return to the High Street Plaza de la Villa which houses the Casa de la Villa, Casa Cisneros and Lujanes Tower.
Just behind is the impressive Plaza Mayor, within which you can see the House Bakery and House of Carnage. At its center is the statue of Felipe III.
Although worth making a detour to visit the Cathedral of San Isidro, to return to the tour and appreciate the beautiful building of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the House of Lope de Vega, Cervantes Street.
