The Autonomous community of Madrid lies in the centre of Spain and is home to the capital city. It is the political and economic centre and has a population of about 5.8 million. The government has its seat here as does the Spanish monarchy.  It is believed that the city was founded on the banks of the Manzanares river by the Romans in the 2nd century AD.  Its name is derived from the Arabic Matrit meaning mother or source, from the Islamic conquest in the 7 th century.  Originally, it was called Matrice.

It has a temperate Mediterranean climate, with cold winters and hot summers and most rainfall is in Spring and Autumn.

Madrid is a city rich in history with numerous monuments and cultural attractions.   La Palacio Real is open to the Public providing there are no official events. The Prado museum is home to some of the greatest art collections and is considered one of the most important art museums in the world.
