Travel video about destination Madrid in Spain.
Madrid is Europe’s most elevated metropolis, a royal capital of history, outstanding buildings and cultural treasures.
Most of Spain’s royal palaces are in Madrid, the capital of Spain since the 17th century. Including the Royal Palace, that even today serves as a royal castle. The colossal building of grey granite and limestone owes its impressive appearance to its length of 500 metres and strategic elevated location.
On the southern side of the castle is Madrid’s most recent cathedral, Almudena Cathedral. It boasts a combination of styles between New Gothic and Classical and was 200 years in construction.
Madrid also has a boulevard that has transformed it into a major metropolis, the Gran Via, that compares in both flair and dimensions with the exquisite streets of Paris and New York, with splendid noble buildings along with the contemporary.
What the Gran Via a hundred years ago, the Paseo De La Castellana achieved comparable renown at the end of the last millennium, a replica of Manhattan, the Zona Azca. A modern city district with spectacular skyscrapers and spacious streets where chrome, glass and concrete dominate the futuristic skyline.
The royal splendor of former times has managed to successfully combine with the contemporary and today, Madrid is no less flamboyant, a city of historic joie de vivre!
