    I've been praying there for some times during my stops in Madrid. The 1 thing I really appreciate from Spain (Madrid's airport) is that it's 1 of the few or perhaps the only 1 airport in Western Europe to have prayers facilities for muslims & christians (in front of each other even)

A typical Mediterranean climate is found in Madrid, with summers that are pleasantly warm and winters that are quite cold. Madrid also offers the most number of trees and greenery per inhabitant in Europe and is home to several parks, gardens and places of natural wonder. Museums and art centres are amongst the other popular tourist attractions in the city.

The city is located towards the North East of the Iberian Peninsula, over the Manzanares River. Most of the tourist-attractions are located within the city centre, with must-visit spots including the Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, Palacio Real and Plaza de Colón.
