Community of Madrid travel guide

Art Museums · Historic Sites · Parks
The area surrounding the capital city, the Community of Madrid is located in the very heart of the country. Densely populated and quite industrialized, the region still retains some remarkably unspoiled and diverse habitats and landscapes, including tall mountain peaks, dense oak forests, and low-lying plains. The region’s lush valleys are noted for sheltering the last bastions of the Spanish imperial eagle, as well as several other species nearly extinct everywhere else in the world. Though the region’s main attraction is undoubtedly the city of Madrid, it is the impressive biodiversity of the area that draws tourism to this part of Spain.
