Madrid's vitality and character will soon have you hooked.

This is Spain's headiest city, where the revelling lasts long into the night and life is seized with the teeth and both hands. Strangers quickly become friends, passion blooms in an instant, and visitors are swiftly addicted to the city's charms.

Madrid may not have the Roman origins that get city historians hot and bothered, and it may be a comparative parvenu, selected from rural obscurity to become the capital only in the second half of the 16th century, but it oozes an ebullience that rarely fails to move.

Weather

From late June until the first weeks of September, the summer heat can be appalling, averaging above 30°C (85°F). The winter months are bitter, with temperatures averaging 2-11°C (36-52°F), though February occasionally produces crisp blue days and temperatures around 17°C (60°F).

As in much of Spain, spring (March-May) and October are the best times to be in Madrid. The weather is generally agreeable, the city has a fresh feel to it and it isn't too overrun with tourists. If you love to party, visit during May for Madrid's biggest fiesta. You might like to book ahead though, it's a tough month for tracking down accommodation.

A Top Day in Madrid

Take the street down the left side of the Casa de Cisneros, cross Calle del Sacramento at the end, go down the stairs and follow the cobbled Calle del Cordón out onto the Calle de Segovia. Almost directly in front of you is the mudéjar tower of the 15th-century Iglesia de San Pedro El Viejo 10. Proceeding down Costanilla de San Pedro, you reach the Museo de San Isidro. Next door is the Iglesia de San Andrés, where the city's patron saint, San Isidro Labrador, was interred. From here you cross Plaza de la Puerta de Moros and head southwest to the Basílica de San Francisco el Grande, or you can walk east past the market along Plaza de la Cebada, which was once a popular spot for public executions to get into the Sunday flea market El Rastro.
