Madrid is a welcoming city full of contrasts and home to Europe's best nightlife, museums, outstanding cultural life (opera, live concerts, bullfights, theatre and cinemas), restaurants and hundreds of attractive destinations. A combination of styles, customs, food and accents enriches its culture. Be sure to visit one of the world's most outstanding flea markets, El Rastro, where you can find anything from valuable antiques to fashionable clothing, and catch the world-famous tomato fight fiesta every August!
