There is something special about Madrid. When you ask our Spanish language students what they like about the capital of Spain you will probably hear that the real star attraction of Madrid is not its grand architecture or world class museums but its people.
Madrid is the melting pot of the Latin world where people from all parts of Spain and South America have made themselves a new home. As the capital of Spain, it is the governmental and commercial centre where you can find everything Latin under the sun: fascinating museums, first class restaurants, great nightlife (be prepared to change your body clock) all set in a very inviting and friendly ambiance.

Some highlights of Madrid
Start on the Puerta del Sol in the centre of town and step with both feet on the “kilómetro cero” tile. As you may have guessed, it is from this tile that all distances throughout Spain are measured.
Continue to the Plaza Mayor around the corner (and smile because our Spanish language school is just opposite the square) and marvel at its grand architecture and street artists. Next stop could be the Prado, Thyssen-Bornemisza or Reina Sofia museum to enjoy one of the finest selections of Spanish art in the world.
Why not enjoy a lazy afternoon in the Retiro park with friends or head to one of the many excellent restaurants to enjoy the famous food of Madrid? At night the options multiply and whether you want to take it easy or dance the night away, there is something in Madrid for everyone.
Don’t forget that football is king in Madrid and everyone (yes, everyone) has a strong opinion about what their football team (most likely to be Real Madrid) needs to do next. Try to attend a game in the stadium –or share the noise in a crowded bar- to soak up what it truly means to be a “socio” or fan.
Our school in Madrid
Like every Babylon Idiomas school, you can find our language school in Madrid in the very heart of the city centre. We are located in the best square in Madrid: Plaza Santa Ana. This makes it very convenient for you to learn Spanish in our school and enjoy the many attractions that Madrid has to offer.
Madrid: city of all seasons
Madrid lies on the central plateau of Spain at a height of approximately 650m and has warm summers and fresh winters: air-conditioning and heating are equally important and of course both available in our school.
Whatever the season you plan on visiting, Madrid is an excellent destination to visit year round and we hope that you too will save a special place in your heart for this magic city.
