Total Hunt Time
About 3 to 4 hours, depending on options selected
Sunny Madrid, occupying the geographical center of the Iberian Peninsula, is in many ways the heart of Spain. (Spanish distances, in fact, are measured from the “Kilometer 0″ mark of Madrid’s Puerta del Sol.) The nation’s capital since 1561 under the reign of King Philip II, historic Madrid is a city of many faces: Medieval Madrid, Hapsburg Madrid, Bourbon Madrid, Madrid of the Romantics. Today’s contemporary city of 3 million is a sprawling yet elegant place, a satisfying mixture of old and new that hustles by day and lights up at night (as befits a place where dinner begins at 10pm!). Your Madrid treasure hunt takes place in the historic district, spanning out from the Plaza Mayor and its Renaissance architecture. Some clue sites you may encounter include: a column dedicated to painter Diego Velasquez; a statue of a giant bear; a memorial to Madrid’s greatest bullfighter and much more.
