Madrid - Where night becomes day

The Spanish capital is constantly on the move: the political and cultural centre of Spain is indeed more restless and livelier than the rest of the country. The vitality of the inhabitants (madrileños), their need to enjoy themselves, and the fact that this is a very sunny city, mean that life pours out onto the streets. Royal palaces in the classical style and wide avenidas characterise the city. Let yourself be wooed by its varied night life, enjoy the cafés, discos, cocktail bars and Flamenco tablaos. Spanish joie de vivre really is infectious!
