About Madrid

It is the capital of Spain and home to over 3 million people, making it a hub for business, politics, and culture. Madrid is also a popular tourist destination, with millions of visitors every year coming to see its famous landmarks, museums, and cultural attractions.
The city center of Madrid is particularly busy, with a lot of traffic and pedestrians. The streets are often crowded, especially during rush hour, and it can be difficult to find parking in some areas. However, the city has a well-developed public transportation system, including a metro system, buses, and trains, which can make it easier to get around. Despite its busyness, Madrid is also known for its relaxed and laid-back lifestyle.
On-street parking in the inner city is difficult to non-residents. In the rest of the centre visitors are allowed to park in the blue zones and in the green (residents) zones).
