Madrid, a world city and the capital of Spain, is one of the main financial centres of Southern Europe. Modern buildings stand side by side with neo-classical constructions. Running in Madrid means admiring both its business districts and its ancient squares.
Very close to the geographical centre of the Iberian Peninsula, Madrid lies on the Meseta plateau, between 600 and 700 m above sea level. This makes Madrid the second highest European capital, after Andorra la Vella. The city is in constant motion, with a chaotic atmosphere all its own. However, there are some pleasant green spaces where you can recharge your batteries. One of the best places to run in Madrid is Retiro Park. Some of our routes will take you on a tour of the park and show you the many monuments that surround it. One of them is the Atocha train station, the oldest in Spain, which houses a tropical garden!In the heart of the city, you will also discover the Temple of Debod, an authentic Egyptian temple dismantled and then rebuilt in Madrid. Or the Puerta del Sol, which is the ground zero of the roads leading out of the capital. By running or walking, we will take you to the foot of the Metropolis building, built at the beginning of the 20th century in a French Beaux-Arts style. Its round tower is covered with thousands of gold sheets !
