Spain’s large capital city showcases the country’s incredible history. It’s a perfect holiday destination, as there are royal palaces, marching soldiers, changing of the guards, and hundreds of museums to visit.
No visit to Madrid is complete without visiting all three of the city’s major museums. The Prado Museum showcases what was formerly the Spanish royal collection of art, while the nearby Reina Sofia Museum shows modern masterpieces like Picasso’s moving Guernica.
