About Madrid 5

Madrid will surprise you with its intense and enveloping blue sky. It has a dry climate with little rainfall, resulting in hot summers and cold winters, but no matter what time of the year you choose to come, you are very likely to see with your own eyes the famous blue sky Velázquez loved to paint.

Summers are dry and can be very hot, with an average temperature of 25ºC (77ºF) in July and August. During these months, it gets dark late and the city really starts to come alive in the evening. In August, the city is much quieter since a large number of Madrileños tend to go away on holiday. At the end of the month, and during September, temperatures cool down significantly.


Madrid offers a very intense cultural life all year long: Opera, Ballet, Concerts, Theatres, Festivals, Expositions, Museums...

Art fans have the renowned Prado Museum and other world-class galleries at their disposal. Lovers of music enjoy a constant offering of concerts, whether their passion be in Opera, Rock, Jazz, or Rap. Bustling downtown avenues like the Gran Via display an endless of procession of cinemas, live theaters, trendy shops, and open markets.
