Madrid is the capital of Spain, and the largest municipality of the Community of Madrid. The population of the city is almost 3.2 million with a metropolitan area population of approximately 6.5 million. It is the third-largest city in the European Union, after London and Berlin, and its metropolitan area is the third-largest in the European Union after London and Paris. Located in south-western Europe, the city spans a total of 604.3 km2 (233.3 sq mi).
While Madrid possesses modern infrastructure, it has preserved the look and feel of many of its historic neighborhoods and streets. Its landmarks include the Royal Palace of Madrid; the Royal Theatre with its restored 1850 Opera House; the Buen Retiro Park, founded in 1631; the 19th-century National Library building (founded in 1712) containing some of Spain's historical archives; a large number of national museums, and the Golden Triangle of Art, located along the Paseo del Prado and comprising three art museums: Prado Museum, the Reina Sofía Museum, a museum of modern art, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, which completes the shortcoming of the other two museums. Cibeles Palace and Fountain have become the monument symbol of the city. The Plaza was built in the 1900 it was originally named Plaza de Castelar however this name was replaced, by the well known name it has become today, Plaza Cibeles.
Madrid is also known for its large business activity and its unique and exuberant offices and buildings. Its neighborhoods complete the diversity of Madrid, and from Engel & Völkers Commercial, we want to provide information focused on commercial and business activity that takes place in each of them.
