The Royal Palace, also known as the Palacio de Oriente, is the official residence of the Spanish royal family, but nowadays it only functions as such for receptions, ceremonies and occasional official acts, so don't expect to see Their Majesties there, but you can feel like one by taking one of the free or guided tours inside the Palace. In addition, the Palace also hosts a Changing of the Guard, which you can watch every Wednesday from October to July at 11.00 am. For more information, visit: www.patrimonionacional.es Don't leave without strolling through the beautiful "Sabatini gardens" to the north and seeing the "Campo del Moro gardens" to the west. In addition, in summer, the Sabatini Gardens become one of the stages for the "Veranos de la Villa" (Summers in the City) music festival. Visit their website and, if you come at that time of the year and you feel like it, enjoy any of their events in a magical setting: www.veranosdelavilla.com

Just 15 minutes walk from the Aparthotel we find the leaning towers of Plaza de Castilla (called Kio Towers or Puerta Europa), which, together with the recently created "Cuatro Torres Business Area", the new Skyline of Madrid; it is not in vain that the Caja Madrid tower, designed by the architect Norman Foster, is the tallest tower in the country at 250 metres high. Enjoy its views and those of the beginning of the Paseo de la Castellana and, if you wish, treat yourself to a meal at one of the city's most renowned restaurants in this area, such as the Txistu or the Asador Donostiarra.

Plaza de Cibeles, Communications Palace and Puerta de Alcalá In the centre of the city, right between Paseo del Prado and Calle Alcalá, we find one of the most photographed spots in the city: the Plaza de Cibeles, whose centre is occupied by the statue in honour of the goddess Cibeles (and where Real Madrid fans gather to celebrate their team's titles). The spectacular nature of the square lies in its sides, which are lined with majestic buildings, such as the Palacio de Comunicaciones (now the city hall), which is well worth a quick visit inside or, even better, a climb up to its terrace, where you can eat, have a coffee or enjoy the views. There is also the Banco de España, the Palacio de Buenavista and the Palacio de Linares (currently Casa de América, and famous for its ghostly stories), and, as we walk up Calle Alcalá, we find the recognisable Puerta de Alcalá, which bears its name and which has made us sing many times the well-known Spanish song by Víctor Manuel and Ana Belén.

From the Royal Palace, we can walk down Calle Bailén to one of the best views of Madrid: the Temple of Debod at the top of the Parque de la Montaña. This 2,200 year old temple was brought stone by stone from Egypt as a gift to our country for the help provided in the rescue of the temples of Nubia (which were to be buried by the creation of the Aswan Dam in the 19th century) and its interior can be visited free of charge within the established opening hours, although the number of tourists who come to this point also do so for the impressive views of the Casa de Campo and the Royal Palace from this hill. We recommend watching the sunset from this point and photographing the temple as it is bathed in the last rays of the day's sun. From here, a 5-minute walk away, you will find the Plaza de España, a meeting point for tourists and young people to enjoy its esplanade in fine weather, and the end of the famous Gran Vía street.

At the far end of the Sabatini Gardens, opposite the Royal Palace, is the Almudena Cathedral. While the Cathedral is very attractive and free to visit, we recommend a visit to the Sacristy and the Crypt, the latter of which can be entered at number 90 Calle Mayor. Entrance costs a donation of 1€, which is well worth it, so we recommend that you don't miss it.

In recent years, the Chueca neighbourhood has become one of the trendiest areas of Madrid. It has an enormous amount of shops, bars and cultural offerings. But if there is one thing that stands out for visitors, it is the hustle and bustle of the people who pass through its streets. In Chueca there are some open spaces that are permanently full of people, such as the square that gives its name to the neighbourhood. You will also find fashion shops with exclusive products that are not found anywhere else, public markets converted into meeting places, museums, unique buildings, the odd religious building, associations, art galleries, many bars and restaurants and some hotels. There are also underground establishments such as tattoo parlours, specialised bookshops and sex shops. On the other hand, Chueca is one of the best known gay neighbourhoods in Europe. And a reference point for the LGTB (lesbians, gays, transsexuals and bisexuals) all over the world. Madrid Orgullo, the neighbourhood's big party, is held here at the beginning of the summer and is now spreading to other streets and squares in Madrid, attracting visitors of all nationalities.
