Madrid is the capital and largest city of Spain. The city is located on the river Manzanares. As the capital city of Spain, seat of government, and residence of the Spanish monarch, Madrid is also the political centre of Spain. Due to its economic output, standard of living, and market size, Madrid is considered the major financial centre of the Iberian peninsula; it hosts the head offices of the vast majority of the major Spanish companies.

While Madrid possesses a modern infrastructure, it has preserved the look and feel of many of its historic neighbourhoods and streets. Its landmarks include the huge Royal Palace of Madrid; the Teatro Real (Royal theatre) with its restored 1850 Opera House; the Buen Retiro park, founded in 1631; the imposing 19th-century National Library building (founded in 1712) containing some of Spain's historical archives; an archaeological museum; and three superb art museums: Prado Museum, which hosts one of the finest art collections in the world, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, a museum of modern art, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, housed in the renovated Villahermosa Palace.
