Next to Madrid’s most famous attractions like the Retiro Park, the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium and Cibeles, there are a couple more things you shouldn’t miss while you’re here!

I made a short list of my favorite things so far in Madrid.

  1. AZOTEA DEL CÍRCULO DE BELLAS ARTES (In my opinion, the best viewpoint of Madrid).
  2. Templo de Debod (Ancient temple and a great place to see the sunset).
  3. Madrid Río (Beautiful boulevard to go for a walk or a run).
  4. Cine Doré (Great low cost historic cinema).
  5. Casa de Campo (My favorite park because it’s natural, huge and it’s not crowded).
  6. Lavapiés (Multicultural neighbourhood).
  7. Malasañas (Neigbourhood with many things to do for young people).
