Discover Madrid and surroundings by car
When visiting Spain’s energetic and culturally rich capital, don’t miss out on top attractions including Madrid’s Art Triangle where you’ll find the Museo del Prado, the Reina Sofía and the Thyssen-Bornemisza – all housing an impressive selection of artwork. The cultural centre known as CaixaForum can also be found in this part of the city with its visually striking vertical garden standing over 24-metres high and boasting 15,000 plants of 250 different species.
If you’re travelling as a family, a trip to Madrid’s largest green park, Casa de Campo, is certainly worth your time. Here, you can walk around the beautiful lake, picnic on the grass, check out the funfair or even head to Madrid Zoo with the Land of Gorillas being a particular highlight. Another haven of tranquillity in the heart of the city is the Buen Retiro Park which is decorated with ponds, tree-lined walkways, fountains, monuments and plenty of lush open space to run around.
Other places to pop on your itinerary include the Royal Palace and of course Gran Via, where you can do a spot of shopping, grab a bite to eat or take in a musical at one of the theatres.
Thanks to Madrid’s central location, day trips are also easily doable when you have a car. While you’ll find the beautiful port city of Bilbao to the north, those in search of sea and sand may fancy a drive west to Valencia – a city well-known for its delightful beaches. If you want to tour more extensively, you could head south from Valencia along the coast towards the Costa del Sol.
Driving in Madrid
Driving in Madrid is an exciting experience with local road signs making it easy to navigate from place to place. As the traffic becomes very heavy within the city centre, however, you may wish to park up on the outskirts of Madrid and make the most of the Metro services.
As you drive around Spain, stay on the right hand side of the road and drive slowly and carefully. There are many speed cameras dotted across the city and as fines for speeding can be rather high, it’s not worth taking the risk. Driving under the influence of alcohol is also strictly forbidden and you must never use your phone behind the wheel.
It’s also worth knowing that Spain’s road network is divided up into carreteras nacionales (toll-free national roads), autovías (toll-free dual carriageways) and autopistas (toll motorways), so keep this in mind as you map out your route.
With regards to parking, you can leave your vehicle in spaces with blue or green road markings. It is illegal to park in places where there are yellow markings or where No Parking (Prohibido estacionar) signs are displayed.
