Madrid is the economical and industrial center of Spain. This modern metropolitan city is home to the Spanish Government and Spanish Royal Family.
After seeing my friends in Barcelona, I am headed to the last stop for this whole Europe trip – Madrid! And this time, I’m gonna meet some of my family who lives there!
Getting to Madrid from Barcelona
Located in the center of the country on a plateau about 650 metres above sea level, Madrid is the highest capital city in Europe. It being in the center makes its easily connected to other major cities in Spain by road, train or air.
I tried to book a last minute flight from Barcelona to Madrid to save some time but unfortunately the prices had gone up. Ultimately, I took ALSA bus which cost me just €32,2. The trip was almost 8 hours. A bit long, but I took the morning trip at 10:30 AM so I got the chance to see the countryside which was very peaceful and relaxing.
