The capital is a good destination for those who have not yet had the chance to see it. Perhaps a weekend is short to see all the things it has with peace of mind, but without a doubt it is an occasion to see its most emblematic monuments and places. When visiting the capital you have to take a walk through the Retiro Park, visit the Puerta del Sol or the Royal Palace. Museums are an essential visit, especially the Prado Museum, but you also have to see the Reina Sofía Museum and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum. Other places of interest are the Gran Vía, full of activity or the Plaza Mayor. For children there is Parque Warner, Faunia and the Zoo.
During the winter we want to take a getaway in the sun from time to time. For example to Tenerife, which offers flights to both the north and south airports.
