With its bright blue skies, mild climate, endless days of sunshine, and the exuberant lifestyle of the locals, Madrid never sleeps. The Spanish capital is unquestionably one of the liveliest cities in the world, and what’s more, it forms part of a dynamic region brimming with culture, art and natural beauty. Small towns and villages nestled amongst valleys and mountains are interspersed with prominent financial and business hubs. All of this makes up the Region of Madrid. Geographically situated in the centre of the country, and with great transport links, you can get pretty much anywhere in Spain or Portugal within a few hours. It’s also well connected to Europe and the rest of the world, especially America, by air.
Four places recognized by UNESCO
You’ll find three cities close to the capital whose historical and artistic heritage has been included on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Alcalá de Henares, San Lorenzo de El Escorial and Aranjuez are all united under the World Heritage in Madrid brand. Hayedo de Montejo has also recently been declared a UNESCO
World Heritage Site of outstanding natural beauty.
