What to see in Madrid

This wonderful city still preserves its great historical heritage while having a vast array of cultural and leisure activities at any time of the day. Starting out at kilometre zero in Puerta del Sol, you can walk up calle Preciados, one of the busiest streets in the world and full of shops selling the best brands. The Metropolis building marks the beginning of the Gran Vía, offering a wide selection of shops and cinemas. Walking up this street towards Plaza de España you will see Torre de Madrid, which for many years was the city’s tallest building, and is still one of the highest concrete buildings in Europe. Incidentally, it was here that the great director Luis Buñuel would always stay when he visited the city in his later years.
