The Capital never stops to reinvent itself, to enrich itself and to put at the reach of tourists and visitors a great offer of leisure, and also of culture! Today we will talk about five cultural events in Madrid that you will love to meet.
The Community of Madrid received 12 million tourist visits in the year 2017. And most of these tourists visited the city. And is because we are a reference for tourism in one of the most visited countries in the world. There must be a reason!
Tourism in Madrid is also a quality tourism. Unlike the coastal areas, visitors (both foreign and foreign) who choose our city, often seek monuments, art, music, theater, information … in a word: culture!
For all readers of our blog, and especially for lovers of cultural tourism, we have made a small selection of cultural events in Madrid that are worth visiting. Some are very popular, although others maybe you do not know them. But what we are sure that you will love them.
Cultural events in Madrid that you cannot miss
The artistic and intellectual activity of Madrid is so wide that selecting some cultural events in Madrid means leaving others equally fascinating on the sidelines.
But do not worry, because if you follow us, you can meet other cultural events that are worthwhile in any of the posts we publish every week.
We have chosen cultural events that are held annually, and that you can attend, not only in what remains of 2018 and 2019, but also in 2020 and in successive years.
