  • Well, the first thing is that the photos correspond to sales, not Madrid arena. We went to see the two basketball game, facilities are good for what they are, far away from the Center.

  • The ticket costs 8.90 but it's worth it all if not more ... includes the entrance to the Museum and a visit to the arena ...

  • Monumental arenas, to see even without bullfight or just before the time. Grandiose even if inside the Bullfight that day was mediocre.

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
