There's always energy in the air in the Spanish capital. Cut off from the country by the rugged Cuenca Alta Manzanares and the windmill-creaking hills of La Mancha, this is where the heart of Iberia beats and pulses. You'll join Madrilenians for tipples of sangria and evenings of pimientos de padrón washed down by cold cerveza in tapas kitchens. You'll wander vast plazas built by Spanish kings and queens, funded by explorer gold from the New World, and aggrandized by palazzos and parks that will take the breath away. You can stop and gawp at priceless works by Goya and Picasso in the very same morning, or watch flamenco dancers twirl under a hazy evening sky. Enchanted yet?
