The Travel Bug's Three Fascinating Facts About Madrid

After a hard day's fact-finding mission in Madrid, The Travel Bug relaxed with a cold beer in Plaza Mayor and told me all the things he had learned about Spain’s fabulous capital city. 

Quiero cerveza, por favor! 

This is what he found out!

  • Madrid is the highest capital city in Europe, sitting approximately 650 metres above sea level

  • Madrid has more cloudless days that any other city in Europe.  

  • Madrid’s main square, Plaza Mayor, was once used for staging bullfights and inquisitions.   No one expects the Spanish inquisition…

Do you have any fascinating facts about Madrid for The Travel Bug??
