What to see Close to Plaza Mayor lies the area known as "Hapsburg Madrid", home to the Royal Palace, the Sabatini gardens and the Campo del Moro gardens. Alongside is Plaza de Oriente, the Opera House and La Almudena Cathedral. Other places of interest include La Puerta del Sol and the so-called "Art Walk", where you can visit three of the world's finest art collections: the Prado Museum, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the Reina Sofía National Art Centre. This is complemented by other outstanding buildings such as the Bank of Spain, Cibeles Palace and the magnificent Cibeles and Neptuno fountains. To discover the most avant-garde Madrid, take a stroll along Gran Vía and Paseo de la Castellana or through the famous area known as Chueca. Visit the Bernabéu football stadium or enjoy some "tapas" in the La Latina district. For an unforgettable night out, take in one of the many musicals at the theatres along Gran Vía: The Lion King, Les Miserables or Mamma Mia! On Sunday mornings, you can go along to El Rastro, the most popular street market in the city. And if you want fun for all the family, spend a day at one of Madrid's theme parks: Faunia, Warner, the Zoo or the fun fair. Enjoy a pleasant stroll around one of the parks: Buen Retiro park, in the heart of the city, Casa de Campo or Juan Carlos I park and El Capricho, on the outskirts of the city. Gastronomy Madrid means “churros y porras” (typical sweet pastries) for breakfast, an omelette as a light lunch and then “tapas” (potatoes in a hot sauce, croquettes with various fillings, pickled anchovies…) in the afternoon and beyond. You can't leave Madrid without trying its most famous dish: “cocido” (a local stew).
