Cozy squares that can be found throughout the city are simply ideal for walks.

Sightseeing in Spain: things to see

The Royal Palace remains the main landmark of Madrid. Nowadays, the palace is used to host most important meetings and official ceremonies. An ancient Moorish castle stood on the site of the modern Royal Palace until 1755.
