Madrid is the next stop on the ATP and WTA Tours with the Mutua Madrileña Madrid Open beginning this weekend.
Madrid is the capital and largest city in Spain. Landscaped by lush parks and beautiful architecture, it’s not hard to find something to do in this amazing European city.
You could visit Museo Nacional del Prado and view paintings by great artists like Diego Velázquez, El Greco, and Titian. Madrid also has a vivid nightlight and a love for sports. (You are probably familiar with the local soccer team, Real Madrid.)
An easy city to navigate, Madrid has one of the fastest metro networks in the world. But if public transportation doesn’t work for you, Madrid is a great city to tour by foot. Especially on a cloudless day, there is so much to see in this great Spanish city!
The players can expect temperatures in the low 40’s to high 60’s with the only threat of rain (so far) being the first weekend and Monday. Hopefully the weather will hold up and keep the clay courts dry.
