  • Freaking!!!!! walk up to get some cash from an ATM machine. Just with in 5 mins from walking my rate just went up to 1 euro (They're pimping EURO out of this).
  • Prado National Museum, since it was opened in 1819 and throughout its centuries-old history, has met the high mission of conserving, expose and enrich the set of collections and works of art which, closely linked to the history of Spain they are one of the highest manifestations of artistic expression of recognized universal value.

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.
