Madrid’s ancient city walls are well worth a visit and the remains of the old Arab walls can still be seen. Originally, the walls surrounded the Settlement of Magerit, which later became Madrid. If you walk beside these ancient relics, breathing in the hot afternoon air, you can almost feel what it was like to live so long ago.

Keen observers will also be able to see Islamic Remains from the 9th and 10th centuries and later Christian relics from the 12th and 13th centuries. You can spend a full day or more here, as there is plenty to see and learn.

The Arab Wall provides the chance for you to see a piece of history, whilst getting outside to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine that Madrid is so renowned for.
