The Madrid region
The capital of Spanish language, Madrid is a vibrant metropolis with much to see and experience.
Above all, Madrid is a city experienced on the street. It truly offers Europe's craziest nightlife -- you'll find yourself out until 6am bouncing from tapas bars to nightclubs wondering when and where the hours escaped you. If you'd rather make a tranquil night of it, you'll find every kind of restaurant imaginable, dozens of movie theaters, theaters and flamenco venues. If you're a sports fanatics, plan ahead to see the "Best Football team of the 20th Century," Real Madrid CF, in action at the Bernabéu stadium.
The Plaza Mayor's northern wall stretches along Calle Mayor, the street that connects Puerta del Sol west towards Calle Bailén and, consequently, the Royal Palace, Almudena Cathedral and Puente de Segovia. Follow any of the alleys south off this grand square and you'll discover the Old City, also known as "Hapsburg Madrid," "Madrid de los Austrias" or "La Latina."
The Plaza Mayor was one of Madrid's first market squares in the 15th century and, as construction continued over centuries, came to host bullfights, carnivals, festivals and all kinds of official ceremonies. It's now home to the city's biggest tourist office, a city government building and a number of overpriced but pleasant cafes with outdoor seating year-round. You'll stumble upon all sorts of fairs, tents and exhibits on any given day, but especially during Christmas when nativity scenes and stands selling wigs fill the square.
The most typical Madrid attractions are concentrated around the Plaza Mayor in the "Austrias" neighborhood.
