Madrid, the capital of Spain, has an infinite number of attractions, both cultural and entertainment, so many that it will be difficult for you to choose your planning!
The oldest recorded name of the city is “Magerit” from the Arabic “place of water”, and this is the most likely explanation of how the city got its name.
The symbol of Madrid is the “bear and the strawberry tree”, you already know that. What you may not know is its meaning. Some people think that the bear is actually a bear and represents the Big Dipper. But there are also those who say that this bear represents a bygone era in which the current city was full of bears. And the strawberry tree? Well, it was a tree that abounded sooooo much where buildings now abound.
