Lots of helpful information plus some really good photos and floor plans of palaces and museums. I use several resources for our trips and find these books are great for planning what we'll see and do.

An interesting book and some really well laid out pages about Madrid and it most famous and worth seeing features. I wish there had have bern a better map in there but it was good enough to get me around while i was there.
Restraunt guide is well worth buying the book for aswell as the sections on shopping in Madrid, great tips there too.
