The Casino Gran Via is located on one of the most prestigious sections of the city, with a stunning Art Deco design hosting first-class restaurants a wine cellar and, of course, a stunning poker room.
The City in the Heart of Spain
Madrid is a true capital – right in the middle of Spain. Many of the historic buildings date from the Spanish Golden Age from the 15th to 16th Centuries. Check out the Plaza Mayor, Alcazar, the Prison of the Court or the Palace of Councils for your architecture fix.
Then there is the art. The Golden Triangle of Art is located along the Paseo del Prado and is made up of three museums. The most famous is the Prado Museum, known for such delights as Diego Velázquez's, Las Meninas and Francisco de Goya's La maja vestida. The other two museums are the Reina Sofía Museum, where Pablo Picasso's, Guernica is displayed and the Thyssen Bornemisza Museum.
However, Madrid isn’t all brick and mortar. It has the highest number of trees and green surface per person in Europe. El Retiro is one of the most popular parks in Madrid and well worth a walkabout.
