Madrid, the capital of Spain

Madrid is one of our favorite cities in Spain. It’s also the most visited city in this special country. There are endless amounts of great restaurants, bars and nightlife. The capital city has a rich history. There is also gorgeous architecture, amazing restaurants, and incredible museums. The sites and things to see are plentiful, with something from everyone from history to soccer buffs. There are also accommodation choices for any travel style and budget.

Villa Magna

One of our favorites in Madrid (we covered some of these properties a few weeks ago) is Villa Magna. Beautiful, well-designed, recently re-opened property. Details like the special attention to clients from the service at the front desk to the restaurant staff make this place stand out. Amazing interior design (the showers are spectacular) and a standard that Rosewood properties always deliver. W love the neighborhood as well, a part of Madrid great for walking, shopping, and dining. Rosewood Villa Magna is a reason to make a stop in this wonderful city.


Granada has an unmistakably Moorish flavor. It was the last city in Spain to be reconquered by the Catholics in 1492. This means that the gastronomy, arts and architecture are all heavily influenced by this fascinating past.

There are so many reasons that this city is so beautiful. It’s a top choice for clients in 2023! Full of fountains and scenic viewpoints. Also, “Cármenes”, typical houses surrounded by gardens in Granada. These all add to the beauty of this destination. One of its historic districts, Albaicín, is a World Heritage Site, together with the Alhambra and Generalife. It was an important cultural centre for many centuries, under both Islamic and Christian rulers. The reasons to visit are unending!

One of our trending tours in 2023?

Private Walking Tour of Granada. One of Spain’s richest and most populous cities during Moorish rule. With your expert private guide, you’ll tour the Alhambra, a breathtaking Moorish castle, palace, and garden complex on a hillside overlooking the city. Also visit the Generalife, the summer palace, and gardens of Moorish royalty. See additional city highlights such as the opulent Royal Chapel, where monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella are buried, and the labyrinthine Albaicin (the former Arab Quarter), a world of winding streets, Moorish fountains, and teterias (Arabic tearooms) in the hills. For lunch, we can make reservations at a restaurant with spectacular views of the Alhambra.
