David Beckham may well have hung up his boots at Real Madrid,
saying adios to this Castilian capital to play football at LA Galaxy. Fair
enough ... who wouldn't be tempted by a $10m pay packet? We think
though David is going to miss all that this great European city has to offer
- food, fashion, style and the many museums - ok, maybe not everything.
This capital city has something for everyone and, if you can stand
the heat, come in August and you'll have the city to yourself as the Madrileños
flock to the coast.
... so this month, we give
you our essential guide to Madrid
Europe’s highest capital
(2,188 feet) is a fascinating
collection of contrasting neighbourhoods.
On a fleeting visit, don’t
miss the wonderful collections that fill the Prado or the
Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum. Velázquez portraits, Goya frescos and
haunts once frequented by Cervantes seem to crop up everywhere you
Whet your appetite in a tiled tapas bar before joining the
locals as they dine out late. Set your pulse racing with the sounds of
jazz, rock, salsa and flamenco in the fashionable clubs around Chueca
Then soothe away that hangover in the gardens of Retiro
Park, a family-friendly space, like that of Casa del Campo, where
ponds, fountains and Punch and Judy shows wait to distract.
