The capital of Spain, and perhaps the most important city in the country's history, throngs with remnants of its imperial past. Madrid's architecture is a reminder of just how powerful this city once was and visitors are spoilt with abundant palaces, churches and cathedrals, all handily laid out on the city's grid-like road network. Madrid is particularly alive at night-time since it has the more bars and restaurants than any other city in Europe.
The largest palace in Europe, Palacio Real, dominates the centre of the city. Visitors can take a tour of the palace to view its extensive collection of historical weaponry. Directly opposite is the Almundena Cathedral, the site of many Spanish royal weddings. The Plaza Mayor and the Puerta del Sol are vast squares where classical music concerts are often put on. The Golden Museum Triangle features three celebrated art museums which showcase paintings by some of the world's most renowned artists.
Visitors will be struck by just how many UNESCO World Heritage sites are close to Madrid. With car rental in Madrid, these sites are very accessible. Toledo is perhaps the most famous excursion since its medieval walled city is a UNESCO World Heritage site with many Jewish, Christian and Muslim influences. Other nearby heritage sites include Alcala de Henares, Aranjuez and Avila.
Best time to visit
Madrid can be stiflingly hot in the summer (June to August), making this an uncomfortable time to take in all the attractions. The spring and autumn months are far more moderate in temperature and a jumper will be enough to keep warm. Being a predominately Catholic country, Spain sees the run up to Christmas well celebrated, with many cultural events held in Madrid at this time.

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
