The bustling, compact and medieval heart of the city is where Madrid's story began and where the city became the seat of royal power. It’s also where the splendour of imperial Spain was at its most ostentatious, with palaces, ancient churches, elegant squares and imposing convents. It’s an architectural high point of the city, with plenty of fine eating and shopping options thrown in for good measure.
