Midnight City

Spain's top city for tourism, Madrid attracts more than six million visitors a year. Helen Crisp and Jules Stewart relate the story of a city and its people through the centuries, while their carefully curated listings give a nod to well-known attractions and sights, as well as hidden gems. Spain's art capital, with its "Golden Triangle" of museums and myriad art galleries, Madrid is also a city of dazzling nightlife, with a profusion of cafes and bars. This is the story of a vibrant, energetic city, one that remains an enigma to many outsiders.
