Sixt Tips back to top

Madrid is a very modern city, but many of its historic neighborhoods and structures have been well-preserved. The city has a long history, dating back to the Roman period. You can still see remnants of buildings dating back to the Medieval times and many from the Spanish Golden Age. The city grew extensively in the modern era, earning it the reputation for being an economic, industrial, and cultural center in Europe. Today, the Spanish capital is lined with contemporary sculpture, some of the most famous the Fountain of Neptune, by Ventura Rodríguez and the grandiose Monument to Alfonso XII, by José Grasés Riera. While in the city, there are various points of interest we recommend visiting. The Royal Palace of Madrid, which is still the official residence of the Spanish Royal family, is an example of Madrid's rich history dating back to the early 1700s. It is possible to visit some parts of the palace, which is filled with art and fine artifacts, such as furniture and silverware. One of Madrid's most unique attractions that cannot be missed is the Temple of Debod. The ancient Egyptian shrine was originally in Aswan, but was gifted to Spain in the 1960s and reconstructed in Parque del Oeste.
