The 10 most instagrammable spots in Madrid

February 16, 2023

Palacio de Cristal (Crystal Palace)

Let’s start with one of the city’s most classic spots, and rightly so. The Palacio de Cristal, located in the also extremely Instagrammable Retiro Park, will be perfect for an amazing photo shoot in Madrid. Its transparent structure lets in light, making it the perfect backdrop at any time of day.

The Streets of Malasaña

The alleyways of the colourful neighbourhood of Malasaña are clearly some of the most popular places to take photos and upload them to social media. It was here that you could find the famous blue mural with eyes that made a photograph by the influencer Dulceida go viral, and nowadays, you can still find many works of street art that will take your Instagram feed to the next level. 


Can you imagine a place made exclusively to be photographed and uploaded to social media? IKONO is precisely that. It is defined as an immersive and sensory exposure where you will find many colourful rooms where you can take the most fun and original photos. Admission for adults is €15. Don’t miss it!

Bloom Restaurant

If you’re a #foodie, you’ll love Bloom. Sample their cocktails and delicious dishes in a picturesque setting full of flowers and with a pink background. Indeed, it’s one of the most popular restaurants for taking photos, where the food and the atmosphere are 100% Instagrammable.

Plaza Mayor (Main Square)

Plaza Mayor is a must if you want to take a good photograph in Madrid. Its classic reddish façade with balconies is a symbol of the city that will stand out in your feed by itself or with you as a model. We recommend going early in the morning, as it tends to get crowded during the day.

ABC Museum

The ABC Museum of Drawing and Illustration is the ideal setting for your interior and outdoor photographs. The mural made up of triangles on the façade means that there are always visitors trying to get the best shot.

Gran Vía

You haven’t been to Madrid if you haven’t had your picture taken on Gran Vía. Madrid’s most popular street is a must if you’re looking for an iconic backdrop for your Instagram. There are multiple corners and options, the most famous being the Metropolis Building, which is only 10 minutes away from our apartments.

Royal Botanical Garden

What better than a natural setting for a perfect photo shoot? The Royal Botanical Garden of Madrid is beautiful at any time of the year; its vividly coloured plants and flowers will allow you to take unique pictures. You have all the information about this garden here

Casa Isabella

If you’re the type of person who makes your friends wait so you can photograph the food first, we have the ideal place to make your Instagram photo carousel look perfect. At Casa Isabella, the presentation and quality of the dishes are top notch; from colourful cocktails to beautiful desserts or an impressive pasta alla ruota, everyone will be impressed. 

Gran View Apartments Rooftop Terrace
