Madrid - Spanish Family
Madrid is a city alive with a passion for every detail of life. The aromas of international cuisine pour from restaurants. Traditional dishes catch people’s eyes in outdoor cafes. Art decorates historic buildings and brings new generations in touch with their heritage. The beautiful architecture is different than that of other cities, sweeping across the old neighborhoods with prominent medieval mansions and an unimaginable Royal Palace. The family arrives at the airport and meets the private transfer arranged by one of our Spain travel agents.
There is something for everyone in Spain’s capital city, from sweet confections to stories of historic battles, delicate paintings to rambunctious pedestrian boulevards. El Retiro is a stunning 17th century European garden affixed with marble monuments, pristine landscape, and sporadic elegant buildings. A large structure watches over the graceful lake. Marble lions add to the Baroque style, and on warm afternoons people gather to enjoy the sunlight. At sunset, a crowd forms around the monument dedicated to Alfonso XII. People bring guitars, drums, horns, and tambourines. The music starts. People dance and more than 4,000 roses shine in the lingering light.
