    Favorite thing: Palacio Real was built between 1738 and 1764 and is the work of several architects. The Royal Palace is an enormous, almost square shaped building.

    The Southern Steppes

    by DanielF Written Jan 18, 2005

    Favorite thing: To the south, the landscape is very different: here the steppe is dominant and the scarce precipitation create dessert like landscape.

    This area is often underrated by many visitors and Madrileños themselves, but it is enchanting and majestic in its austerity and is home to an astounishingly rich biodiversity.

    Endangered fauna

    by DanielF Updated Jan 18, 2005

    Favorite thing: The Madrid Autonomous Community hosts a large number of endangered species; something remarkable for an area significantly affected by a large metropolitan area. Bears are no longer to be seen in the Monte del Pardo, but the Imperial Eagle, the black vulture and other emblematic endangered species still have some of their main breeding areas in this region.

    Some researchers even point to the fact, more based upon hope than upon reality, that the Iberian lynx is still present in the most remote areas of the region.

    Sistema Central

    by DanielF Updated Jan 18, 2005

    Favorite thing: The North and Eastern regions of the Madrid Autonomous Communitye are occupied by the Iberian Central range, which divides the Castilian meseta into two parts. Parts of these mountains are still surprisingly unspoilt, in spite of the many urban developments that have threatened their preservation in the last decades.

    The landscape here is pleasant and rough at the same time.
