What to see in Madrid

The Spanish capital always offers a colossal range of cultural and sightseeing options: its many museums, not least the Prado, the Thyssen-Bornemisza, and the Reina Sofía National Art Centre, or exhibitions in Centro Cultural Fernán Gómez or Casa de Vacas (in the Retiro park) underpin Madrid's status as a cultural and artistic epicentre. But Madrid has another, equally well-known side to it: the famous "Madrid nightlife" in districts such as Latina, Malasaña, Lavapiés and Chueca, where the fun doesn't stop until dawn.

What to see in Guadalajara

Guadalajara boasts spacious green areas and a range of interesting tourist activities to tweak visitors' interest, in addition to its numerous monuments. Among Guadalajara's architectural heritage, we highlight the Co-cathedral of Santa María, Convento de la Piedad and Palacio de Antonio Mendoza, not forgetting palaces such as those of Dávalos, Condesa de la Vega del Pozo and Infantado. Your visit to Guadalajara may well coincide with one of the many cultural festivals, book fairs, concerts, plays or local festivities held in the city over the course of the year.
