A warm welcome from Madrid

Madrid is the political and financial capital of Spain with 3.1 million inhabitants (6.4 million in the region), making it one of the main metropolises in Europe. It has excellent hotel capacity, beautiful architecture and a pleasant climate that confers brightness and warmness on the city. Additionally, the local Mediterranean cuisine adds flavour to all these ingredients. These, together with the city’s good value for money, make Madrid an excellent place for business, meetings and leisure.
