There has been a long standing rivalry between Barcelona and Madrid, not only between locals but also between loyal visitors who all praise that their favorite is better than the other for one reason or another.
So let’s stir it up a bit and compare the cities with this cool infographic from HostelBookers – where would you prefer to go?
This feud could, and probably will, go on forever. There are good and bad things about both cities, and depending on what you want you will find that one city fits your needs better.
As both cities are extremely popular, you would think that when it comes to finding Cheap Hotels, Barcelona and Madrid would disappoint - but this is surprisingly not the case. There are many cheap hostels and restaurants to keep your wallet happy.
Another factor we would like to add to this inforgraphic is the “entertainment” factor – Madrid has the better museums, where, for the record, two of the best are free every night of the week.
But Barcelona has that “wow” factor with incredible architecture that you see by just walking down the street.
This is a close and interesting bet, and we would love to hear your opinion: Who would you pick as the winner?
