Madrid can be described as an autonomous community pertaining to Spain. It lies at center of Spain.
This place has managed to retain certain remarkably diverse and unspoiled landscapes and habitats.
One would find mountain peaks which rise above 2000 meters; apart from low-lying plains and holm oak dehesas. The climate is quite pleasant. Population is around five millions.
Relaxed and green (besides the city traffic) and improving in leaps and bound on each return. It also has a vibe and a gogo attitude but only at night, late...well all night.
Lovely cultural city. Shame about all the strikes. Not really helping their economy. Or sick people. Won't really encourage tourist industry.
