The vivacious Spanish capital city, Madrid is located on the elevated Castilian plain in the center of the Iberian Peninsula. This culturally rich city whose landscape is dotted flamboyant fountains, baroque buildings and medieval and renaissance palaces can trace its origins back to the 9th century when it was invaded by the Iberian Moors. The Iberian Moors then continued to reign over Madrid and much of the Iberian Peninsula for several decades and evidence of this rule can be seen in the many Arabesque buildings that populate the Spanish capital city. Today however Madrid aside from functioning as the premier city of Spain, is also an important economic nerve center of Europe as it is home to some of the continent’s biggest companies like the banking conglomerate Banco Santander, the telecom giant Telefonica and Endesa, the largest utility company in Spain.
