    Those planning to spend their holiday in Madrid should consider renting a holiday apartment in Salamanca district. It is one of Madrid’s newest neighbourhood’s, having only been transformed into what it is today about 150 years ago – when Queen Isabella II gave the go-ahead to have it expanded. It is one of the more expensive districts in Madrid, but holidaymakers can be sure to get good value for their money here. Aside from the apartments, there are also luxurious Salamanca lofts, Salamanca studios and holiday flats, to choose from. Salamanca is known for its impressive architecture and numerous shopping stores especially on Claudio Coello, Goya, Lagasca and Serrano Streets. Holidaymakers will never run out of things to do during their time in this beautiful town.

    Things to do

This street is named after the Spanish General, Francisco Serrano y Dominguez.

    -The Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas: This brick building located in the Salamanca district houses the biggest bullring in Spain. The construction of the bullring was finished in the year 1929; and it opened its doors to the public in 1931. During its busiest season – between March and June – the bullfighting arena holds a match every single evening. At capacity, the arena can hold about 25,000 people.
