Learn a bit about the history of the capital of Spain, Madrid

Madrid, a canvas in constant evolution, where echoes of the past resonate in every alley and square. Founded in the 9th century as an Arab enclave, Madrid has witnessed the rise of empires and the transformation of small villages into a vibrant metropolis.

Its foundations intertwine with the history of Al-Andalus, when walls erected by the Muslims protected the fortress they called Magerit. With the Reconquista, Madrid passed into Christian hands, but its urban profile barely glimpsed the greatness that awaited it.

It was in the 16th century, when Philip II moved the court to Madrid, that the city began to forge its destiny as a political and cultural center. Iconic constructions, such as the Royal Palace and Plaza Mayor, were erected under the shadow of this boom.

The 18th century marked a significant change with the arrival of the Bourbons. The Gran Vía, the main axis of the city, was traced, shaping an architecture that embraced neoclassicism and European elegance.

During the Civil War, Madrid became a symbol of resistance. The scars of the conflict are still appreciated in its streets, reminding of the struggle and resilience of its inhabitants.

Today, Madrid stands as a cosmopolitan metropolis, where modern skyscrapers coexist with historic buildings. Its museums, such as the Prado and the Reina Sofía, treasure the art that has flourished on its streets.

Walking through Madrid is strolling through the centuries, where each corner tells a story, each alley whispers secrets of a past that has left an indelible mark on this constantly moving city. Madrid, where yesterday and today converge in an eternal dance, remains a silent witness to the richness of its history.
