Looking at the Madrid sightseeing map is enough to realize that a week is not enough to get to know all the historical monuments, architectural ensembles and museums of the Spanish capital.
Take the famous National Museum of the Prado, which has one of the largest and most valuable collections of paintings by the great masters of European painting. A whole day would not be enough to see all the paintings, sculptures and decorative arts in this museum!
At the same time, a map with Madrid attractions offers tourists to visit other famousmuseums: the Queen Sofia Art Center (a magnificent collection of modern paintings), the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum (a large collection of paintings from different eras), the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando (a rich collection of medieval and modern paintings).
A description of Madrid's attractions would be incomplete without mentioning the luxurious residence of the Spanish kings. The King's Palace in Madrid impresses with the beauty of its interior decoration, which was created by such masters as Sabatini, Caravaggio, Velázquez and Goya. Here you can see beautiful collections of weapons, paintings, furniture, and at the same time walk in the two royal parks - Sabatini Gardens and Campo del Moro.
Madrid's sights are best described by professional guides, who will probably suggest you visit the majestic medieval Encarnación monastery and the beautiful Cathedral of Almudena.
If you are making a trip on your own, buy a brochure with descriptions and names of Madrid's sights, so that you don't miss something really interesting from the riches of the Spanish capital. Then you are sure to bring back from Madrid photos of sights that take your breath away!
