 Old Town Madrid - Madrid, the capital and largest city in Spain, is famous for its historical landmarks, world-class museums and galleries, lively street life, grand boulevards, and bustling sidewalk cafes. At the heart of the city is Old Madrid where most of the tourist attractions and night-time action can be found. Classy and dignified Ensanche, Madrid’s grandest area, is the home of upscale residences, designer boutiques, embassy buildings and elegant hotels. At around three square miles, Old Madrid’s narrow winding calles (streets) and broad avenidas (avenues) are easily explored on foot.


Las Palmas, Gran Canaria Photo Gallery - Gran Canaria is the second most populous of the dozen islands that make up the archipelago of the Canary Islands. As co-capital of the islands along with Tenerife, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, commonly known as Las Palmas, has a population of nearly 400,000 residents. It is the largest of the 21 towns on Gran Canaria.


Madrid Old Town Photo Gallery - Madrid was established as Spain’s capital in 1561 by King Philip II. The city is located in the heart of the country and is Spain’s administrative, financial and transportation center. The city’s old town section is a compact walkable area with diverse architectural styles that reflect centuries of political influences. Madrid has been called the “city of a thousand faces”. It has outstanding parks, more than 70 museums and numerous attractive historic squares. The city hosts nearly seven million tourists annually making it the fourth most visited capital city in Europe after London, Paris and Rome.

Retiro Park - Once a private retreat used exclusively by Spain’s royalty, Retiro Park today is the playground of the common man. However, there is nothing common about this historic, stately and scenic public park in the heart of Madrid. The park is home to sculptures, monuments, ponds and botanical gardens that provide a year round retreat for locals and tourists alike. With a tall, shady canopy, vast grassy spaces, wide promenades, open air cafes and natural beauty all around, Retiro certainly reinforces Madrid’s reputation as one Europe’s greenest capitals.
