    Madrid - La ciudad que nunca duerme Madrid - La ciudad que nunca duerme

    The capital of Andalucía is located in the south of Spain. It is famous for its flamenco dance, particularly in the neighbourhood of Triana.

    The main iconic sites include the ornate castle complex of the Alcázar, built during the Almohad Moorish empire, and the Plaza de los Toros de la Maestranza from the 18th century.

    In the Gothic cathedral of Seville, there is the tomb of Christopher Columbus and a minaret transformed into a bell tower, the Giraldo.

    Most of the main monuments of Seville are located within the old pedestrian city. The medieval Jewish quarter of Santa Cruz has serpentine alleyways of cobblestones lined with orange trees. The Arsenal district has the Museum of Fine Arts, which exhibits masterpieces of the paintings of El Greco and Velázquez.

    The April Fair of Seville takes place in Los Remedios, in the southwest of the city, a festival in which people eat, drink sherry and dance flamenco, in colourful stands along the Guadalquivir River. The tapas bars usually offer the famous soup of the city, gazpacho.
