Maps of best attractions in Madrid, Spain

Madrid maps will guide you to the best destinations in the city. Madrid is large but manageable. The major points of interest are located within a relatively confined area bordered in the west by the Palacio Real (Royal Palace) and in the east by the wide avenue known as the Paseo del Prado. The three major museums are situated around the Paseo del Prado, while just to the east of it is the Parque del Retiro and the chance for a perfectly relaxing reprieve from the hyperactive city life. Following the Paseo del Prado north, it comes to be called the Paseo de los Recoletos, which is of less interest to most tourists; it is sided by tall office buildings housing many of the country’s most prominent businesses. Recoletos passes by the upscale Salamanca district in the northeast of the city, popular for its shopping and restaurants. Madrid's top sights, plus hotels, shopping centres, and many of the city’s key landmarks are plotted on our detailed city plans. Public transportation points are also marked, and indicated by the symbols listed in the maps key. Armed with these maps, you should be able to find the accurate location of must-see places. Mapping out a trip to explore Madrid can be far from the usual. This page includes a range of maps and plans which will help you make the most of your visit to Madrid. If you are either a first-time tourist looking for the top 10 must-do sights or if you are returning to Madrid to discover something new - all you need to ensure an enjoyable trip is some advance planning. For some help in narrowing down the options, we present you with a range of high resolution maps which will help you find the detailed locations of the must-see sights - just click on a selected map to access a large version that can be downloaded and printed, or saved onto your mobile device. When in Madrid, you can also get free pocket-size maps of the city from the tourist information centres. Metro stations will in turn provide you with a free map of underground and suburban railway (cercanias) systems.

Map of top 10 attractions in Madrid

The typical top ten attractions are listed below. You can find the detailed locations of these places on the maps above.

What are some interesting facts about Madrid?

Madrid Card - This card gives you free entry to several museums as well as unlimited travel on the Madrid Vision tour bus and other discounts. 24-, 48- or 72-hour cards are sold at tourist offices, on Madrid Vision buses or over the internet.

Public Transport - Madrid is a compact city when compared with other European capitals. although most of it can be easily explored on foot, if time is tight don’t hesitate to make use of the metro as cross-city trips are rarely more than four or five stops. Buy the economical Metrobus ticket, valid for 10 journeys, or the Tourist Travel Pass. Keep track of the number of rides you’ve done, to avoid running out (ticket machines indicate how many journeys are left).

Buying a map - It's worth equiping yourself with a good city map before exploring the town. One of the best and most detailed is the Michelin version, which sells at around 6€ in the travel sections of large stores like the Corte Ingles, FNAC, or Casa del Libro (the latter’s located near the Gran Via metro stop). The free maps given away by tourist offices and hotels are generally less detailed, giving a mere outline of the fascinating maze of little streets that form the labyrinthine center.

Geography - Five and half million people live in the Madrid Region (Comunidad de Madrid), with approximately three million concentrated in the metropolitan area. This region is situated at the geographical centre of mainland Spain, and is bordered by Castile & Leon, whose domains extend northwards as far as the Cantabrian Range and westwards to nearby Portugal. Stretching away to the south and east are the plains of Castile-La Mancha, which convey the traveller down to the beaches of the Mediterranean. Madrid stands on the Castilian high plateau or tableland (meseta) at a height of 646 metres (2,119 ft.) above sea level, where Barajas Airport is one of the most popular focal points for the forty-nine million tourists who flock to Spain every year. Radiating out from the city’s inner hub is a complex rail and road network that speeds travellers to any corner of Spain, to neighbouring France and Portugal, or to the sea frontier with North Africa.

For free - Most of Madrid’s world-class attractions have admission fees, and these have, for the most part, been rising steadily over recent years. Even so, a significant number of attractions – from parks and churches to museums and art galleries – remain free, regardless of when you decide to visit. With careful planning, the combination of free attractions and specific times when major sights offer free entry enables you to see the best the city has to offer without burning a large hole in your pocket.

Neighborhoods - Madrid can be divided into two main zones of real interest to visitors: the old traditional Center, with the Puerta del Sol and Gran Vía at its heart and surrounding 17th-century Austrias, and Castizo (traditional) Arguelles, Chueca, Malasana, Chamberí, Sol, Heurtas, Salamanca, and Lavapies districts; and the newer Ensanche (extension) refers to all parts of Madrid built outside of the old city walls from the 18th century onward. This area includes the wide cosmopolitan Castellana Avenue, with its business offices and classy hotels; the grid-planned, once mansion-filled Salamanca barrio, home of some of Madrid’s best shops and restaurants; and northern Chamartín district, with its easier-going residential atmosphere.

Orientation - West of the Paseo del Prado is the neighborhood known as Huertas, a traditional literary haunt and home to numerous cafes and tapas bars. Huertas merges with the crowded Puerta del Sol, which is the heart of the city and, for that matter, the country, with roads radiating off in all directions and people doing the same. From here, a number of pedestrian streets funnel crowds northward between department stores and boutique shops to the Gran Vía. This main commercial street runs east-west with theaters and less-than-appealing eateries spanning the length of it. Immediately north of the Gran Vía are the trendy, trashed areas known as Malasana and, just east of it, Chueca, both loaded with raging clubs, hip sipping spots and cheaper shopping choices than that of Sol or Salamanca. To the south and west of the Puerta del Sol is the area generally referred to as Hapsburg Madrid, with its ever-popular Plaza Mayor. South of it is La Latina, full of character and creativity and within sight of El Rastro flea market, along with many of Madrid’s most traditional restaurants. Farther south is the white-collar barrio called Lavapies. Northwest of the Plaza Mayor is the oldest district of Madrid, originally a Moorish quarter known as Morería and, finally, the Palacio Real, the grandest vestige of Habsburg Madrid in the area known as Opera.

Nightlife - 7 The legend of Madrid’s hedonistic nights was born in the narrow, innercity streets of Malasana and Chueca In gritty and grungy Malasana, hard-living rock venues share punters with elegant 19th-century literary cafes Next door in Chueca, a cool and predominantly gay clientele ills bars and nightclubs to capacity most nights. More than anywhere in the city.
