Modern. Historical. Romantic. Cultural. Words to describe this fascinating city. Madrid, Spain has been occupied since pre-historic times and the origins of the modern city, starting with the palace, date back to the 9th century.
You’ll find Madrid awash with green spaces and parks; with a large one in central Madrid. Located in the Atocha Railway Station, the city’s central rail station is a 4,000 square meter indoor garden filled with tropical plants and is a destination for plant lovers to visit its hothouse and see the 500 species of plant life. There are also ponds, goldfish, shops and cafes.
