Madrid is a modern, cosmopolitan city with many of the country’s most important museums and historic monuments, including the Prado and Reina Sofia art museums, and the Palacio Real. The city boasts majestic tree-lined avenues, impressive architecture, beautiful parks, and is well known as a great place to study.
