Madrid’s origins date back to the 9th century, particular the times of Arab Emir Mohamed I, born 852 and died 886. Alonso V took over ruling in the 11th century, after a scuffle between the Arabs and the Christians. Carlos III ruled the city for a part the 18th century. Under his reign, the superb arteries like the Paseo del Prado and the Paseo las Acacias were created.

A particularly verdant, ecologically thriving area, Madrid is widely considered to be one of the “greenest” places in all of Europe. The Retiro is vibrant with flowers, fountains, and a lake, while the sprawling Casa del Campo, a moorland, is filled with copses of trees and birds. Alberto Ruiz-Gallardon has many plans to improve the city, especially on an ecological level; his plans include planting hundreds of thousands of trees and to develop the Manzanares River area into pedestrian friendly park.

Madrid Spain is still as diverse as it always was. The city itself is at once a celebration of history and cultural as well as modern, metropolitan versatility. In the hart of the city lies its vintage, historical section, which houses Los Austrias, the Plaza Mayer, and the Palacio Real.
