Ernest Hemingway once called Madrid "the most Spanish of all the cities." Follow Adela la Ucar through the baroque Royal Palace, a bullfighting stadium, the palace fort of Alcazar, and El Rastro, the famous flea market, in this Pilot Guides episode. Adela tours the imposing Plaza Major, used by the Spanish Inquisition to publicly humiliate heretics but today a bustling urban center, before heading to El Prado Museum to check out two of Spain's greatest artists: Velasquez and Goya. She stays in a hostel called Los Gatos after young, partying Madrile©łos, meets a cutting edge fashion designer, learns about the Spanish Civil War, attends the Gay Pride festival, admires the 15th-century Gothic cathedral, goes on a Spanish Inquisition tour, visits the Museum of Torture, and meets a traditional blacksmith.
