Driving in Madrid
If you came to Madrid by train and want to explore the city center, you can easily do so by foot. But if you want to explore Madrid properly, you should rent a car and drive around on your own. Renting a car is especially useful if you are planning a road trip through Spain and want to start it here in Madrid. The only thing you need to keep in mind is that you need to follow the traffic rules. Traffic in Madrid can be heavy, especially during rush hours, so you need to be patient and pay attention to the signs.
There are many parking garages in the city. So if you want to skip part of the city, it is best to park your car and walk around the city or use the metro, which is also very well organized.
To drive a car in Madrid, you must be at least 18 years old and have a valid driver's license and proof of insurance for the vehicle you are driving. Drive on the right-hand side of the road. There are a large number of roundabouts in Spain, so you need to be extra careful if you are not used to it. The driver who is already in the roundabout has the right of way unless there are traffic lights at the roundabout to control the flow of traffic. Before leaving the roundabout, you should put on your right turn signal to indicate that you are leaving the roundabout.
The speed limit on the motorway is 75 mph (120 km/h). On normal roads, the speed limit is 75 mph (90 km/h), on inner-city roads, it is 50 mph (50 km/h), and on all other, through roads, there is a speed limit sign.

Since its foundation in 1851, the station has been repeatedly rebuilt and renovated. In the last renovation, after a great fire that practically destroyed it, it was divided into two parts. The new part of the station is used for all train traffic (high-speed terminal, long-distance trains and local transport), while the older part is used for all kinds of offices, shopping centers, bars, restaurants and also a botanical garden with 400 different species and over 7,000 plants in total.
