Student trips to Madrid
A City of Passion
The Spanish capital was once a Roman settlement, then an Arab garrison town, before rising to become the seat of a powerful world empire. Today it is a modern, sophisticated city that balances its history with its present, its internationalism with its distinctly Spanish heart.

The Palacio Real, or Royal Palace, is Madrid's largest building and possibly its most beautiful. It is located next to the equally beautiful Plaza de Oriente square. It is used for state ceremonies, official banquets and other state functions although it is not the official residence of the Spanish Royal Family.
Toledo is one of the oldest towns in Spain and lies on a granite hill surrounded on three sides by the deep gorge of the river Tagus. The highlights of the town include its cathedral, towering Alcazar and its ring of Gothic and Moorish walls. The town is situated one hours drive from Madrid, therefore a coach is required. Prices available on request.
El Pais Newspaper Visit
El Pais is the highest circulation newspaper in Spain and one of Madrid’s three dailies. It's an independent paper dedicated to the promotion of democratic ideals in a post-Franco Spain. First released in 1976, six months after his death, through an idea of the son of the philosopher José Ortega y Gasset, it is easily readable and appeals to diverse interests.
Teleférico de Madrid
The Teleférico de Madrid is a cable car ride that offers a birds eye view of Madrid. The cabins reach a maximum height of 40m and the 2.5km journey takes just over 10 minutes from its starting point at the Paseo Rosales all the way to the Casa de Campo Park.
