The long-awaited Easter holidays are getting closer and closer. As every year, in Madrid you can make a multitude of plans with family and friends. That’s why, this 2022 you can’t miss the opportunity to come to Madrid and enjoy Easter in the capital.
We know that there is still time for Holy Thursday to arrive, however, planning a trip in advance is a good solution to make it economically better for you.
Things to do in Madrid this Easter
Madrid has a great variety of things to do, from visiting exhibitions, going shopping, strolling through the streets, and tasting the most typical dessert of these dates, torrijas. But, above all, you can’t miss the processions. The best known is the Cristo de Medinaceli, which takes place on Good Friday. It starts at the Parish Church of Jesús de Medinaceli and goes through almost all the streets of the city.
One of the things not to be missed is a visit to the famous Plaza Mayor square. It’s one of those places that has something inside that makes it special and unique. It is always full of people, and there is a great environment. You can enjoy a good beer or, if you prefer, a hot chocolate.
On the other hand, if you want to visit the city by foot and have them tell you all the history and show you the hidden corners, we recommend you to choose a free tour. Also, for more cultural visits, Madrid host a wide variety of museums, such as the Reina Sofía, the Prado Museum, and the National Archaeological Museum.
As it can’t be otherwise, Easter is to enjoy with the family, and a plan to do if you come with children is to go to the Theme Park of Madrid (Parque de Atracciones de Madrid). Here you will find different attractions, some for the little ones, and others for all ages. Without a doubt, it is a day where you will have fun and feel the “adrenaline” of going on some of the rides with your kids.
Four days of sightseeing alone may appeal to someone, but others may prefer to combine culture with nightlife. So if you’re looking for a good nightlife, that’s possible too. There are areas full of bars, terraces and nightclubs. Among them, we would highlight Malasaña, Chueca, Sol-Gran Vía, and Castellana.
Finally, you can discover the best views of Madrid’s skyline from the cable car. You can enjoy emblematic buildings of the capital from the top, such as the Royal Palace, the Moncloa Lighthouse, or even the Four Towers.
