    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Royal Palace of Madrid, Calle Bailen, 28071 Madrid Spain

    The Royal Palace stands on the site of the former Alcázar of Madrid, a medieval fortress transformed into a lavish palace by Juan II, Carlos V and Felipe II who in 1561 made it the official residence of the Spanish Monarchy. The Alcázar was destroyed in a fire on Christmas Eve 1734.

    Felipe V then decided to raise a new Royal Palace on this site, employing the best architect in Europe at the time, Filippo Juvarra. When Juvarra died in 1736, his pupil Giambattista Sacchetti made various changes to his grandiose project. The entire building is made of a series of domes built without a single piece of wood and it has multiple floors to accommodate all the administrative offices, Crown officials and servants.

    Stop At: La Latina, Madrid Spain

    The narrow and winding streets of this irregularly laid-out area, mostly dating back to the Middle Ages, usually lead onto a square. Most of them lay outside the Medieval walled village and provided accommodation to a great many merchants who sold their goods at the market. This commercial tradition still echoes in several street and square names, such as Plaza de la Cebada (Barley Square), where the farmers’ market used to be held, Plaza de los Carros (Carriage Square), Plaza de la Paja (Straw Square), or even El Rastro (owing its name to the blood trail of the old slaughterhouse), the city’s best-known flea market.

    Stop At: Barrio de Las Letras, Plaza de las Cortes, 28014 Madrid Spain

    In the seventeenth century, the Golden Age of Spanish Literature, Cervantes, Lope de Vega, Quevedo, Tirso de Molina and Góngora, among other authors, had their homes here – hence the name. Some of the streets in this neighbourhood pay tribute to this and other brilliant chapters of Spanish history, culture and art.

    Stop At: Paseo del Prado Paseo Del Prado, 1, Madrid Spain

    Paseo del Arte (Art Walk in English) is also known as the Golden Triangle of Art. Along a 2 kilometre stretch, three of the world’s finest art collections are to be found. This includes the Prado Museum, the Thyssen-Bornemisza National Collection, and the Reina Sofía Museum.

    Paseo del Arte runs along the wide, tree-lined boulevard of Paseo del Prado and some of the streets that come out onto it. Together with Paseo de Recoletos and Paseo de la Castellana, Paseo del Prado forms a long line that flows north to south through the city.

    Once an open green space close to the San Jerónimo el Real monastery – ‘prado’ means ‘meadow’ in Spanish –, the area of the long avenue that we can see today witnessed the construction of the Buen Retiro Palace, commissioned by King Philip IV.

    Stop At: Calle Manuela Malasana 20, 28004 Madrid Spain

    This neighborhood owes its name to Manuela Malasaña, one of the heroines and victims of the historical events that took place in Madrid on 2 May 1808. Plaza del Dos de Mayo, at the heart of the neighbourhood, commemorates the rebellion against Napoleon’s occupation led by captains Luis Daoíz and Pedro Velarde, officers at the headquarters of the Monteleón Artillery Regiment.

    In the festive 1980s, Malasaña witnessed the birth of the movida madrileña, an underground movement that revolutionised the arts, culture and Spanish society at large.

    If you want to see Madrid and combine some exercise then book a bike tour. I did the tour with 3 friends and one other girl so we were a nice small group. In total we cycled 8 miles and would never have visited as much of Madrid on foot or metro. We cycled on main roads, tracks
