At last, the great capitol of Spain, located in the center of the country. Madrid is hip, modern, and cool, yet high-class, historic and greatly preserved. In the city, there are many amazing buildings, including "Los Correos" the main post office, "Metropolis" an architectural marvel, and the "Teatro Real" (Royal theatre), a historic building that makes you feel like you are in a fairy-tail. This city is very clean and organized, with "La Guardia Civil" guarding what seems like every building and street corner, as the King and Queen of Spain live here, as well as most of the Spanish goverment. Some of the best seafood in Spain can be found here, even do the sea is not present.
