Cultural Capital of Spain

Madrid’s world-class chefs create dishes that skillfully blend traditional Spanish cooking with ingredients brought from around the world. There’s something for every palate and budget here, from the famous tapas to gourmet delicacies hard to find anywhere else in the world.
