Madrid, the largest city in Spain, is often described as the European "capital of joy and contentment." Although the city is a modern business hub, and the political center of Spain, the residents take time to enjoy life with long walks, and lingering evenings with friends over tapas. Madrid, referred to as "the city that never sleeps', is the origin of the Flamenco dance and bull fighting. It offers many entertainments, art museums, luscious foods and wines.
