Some Incredible Getaways in Madrid

Madrid, Spain's central capital, is a city of elegant boulevards and expansive and manicured parks .It’s renowned for its rich repositories of European art. But If you thought that Madrid is the only city where all the fun lies, then this travel guide is for you. After you are done with exploring the Spanish capital, scoop some time out for a nice weekend getaway to its neighbourhood cities. I will recommend 3 great jaunts with a variety of activities.


Valencia is one of the beautiful cities of Spain. Every March, the whole town turns out for a special fest with pomp and show, literally! Every year, each area of the city and some distant towns too spend around 1,00,000 Euros and enormous amount of time in constructing big and animated statues. The sculptures are exhibited on the streets throughout the week-long fiesta, and then blown into pieces by letting off firecrackers on them, followed by street parties and plenty of dressing up and parading in fancy outfits! Shopping devotees can look forward to spend their buck on high street shops and malls; the beach lovers can steal in some peaceful moments by watching the sun set while relaxing on clean, soft sand of wide and long beaches such as La Malvarrosa and Playa de las Arrenas. Even after all that sightseeing, visitors can never get bored in Valencia, for the city has several traditional shops, bars and cafes.


Granada is a perfect getaway from Madrid, and you won't have to battle the cool kids for a spot on the sand. The mesmerising beauty of Granada, a city dripping in Arabian history, has to be seen to be believed. Take a walk in winding medina of the Albacin neighborhood, and you'll be stunned by the impressive views—every bit made for your Instagram feed. The brilliant grounds of Alhambra, Granada’s famous Moorish fortress, are worth checking out. It takes five hours drive from the South of Madrid to reach this all-embracing tourist getaway. Explore the colourful street market amassed with ethnic stuff of all kinds—bags, shoes, clothing and the likes.


Seville is Madrid’s affluent cousin wherein the wealthier and most aristocratic people live. Both the cities are easily connected via regular bus service; but stay prepared to put through a 6-hour-long journey. The aristocratic nature of the city permeates the hotels nestled in its every nook and cranny. There are, however, affordable hostels with beautiful rooms and rooftop gardens. Bus and metro services are well in place in Seville, even though it is worth mentioning that every place is easily accessible by foot. Shoppers on shoestring budget can delve into the sea of hidden treasures in the street markets.
