Directly east of the ancient heart of Madrid lies the fantastic ‘literary neighbourhood’ the Barrio de las Letras where some of the greatest writers, poets and playwrights in history made their home. The memorable quotes lining the streets make it one of the cultural highlights of the city by day and the busy bars and cafés a party hotspot by night. These two sides of the district collide in the figure of legendary American author Ernest Hemingway – discover one of his favorite bars and his passion for bullfighting. Visit the Cervantes’ House, where the world’s greatest novel, Don Quixote, was written.

Away from the narrow, twisted medieval streets of the center, you’ll find the other side of the city. The Madrid of the Bourbon dynasty: the grandest streets and stunning ensembles of early 20th century architecture from Art Deco to Neo-Mudéjar. Calle de Alcalá and the Paseo del Prado, where you’ll find the famous institutions that make Madrid one of the most majestic cities in the world. Madrid’s most iconic buildings form an incredible skyline of bold designs, vibrant colors and monumental grandeur. The phenomenal Golden Triangle of Art combines three of the world’s best collections of Old Masters, Early Modern and Contemporary Art.
