Send a Parcel to Madrid, Spain
The city of Madrid is not only the capital of Spain but also Spain's largest city. The city itself is home to around 3.3 million people with around 6.5 million living in the Madrid metropolitan area. This actually makes it the third largest city in Europe behind London and Berlin.
Madrid has the third largest GDP of any city within the European Union and this contributes towards making it one of the World's major global cities. It is this high economic output that helps make Madrid into the leading financial centre within southern Europe.
The city is also home to the World Tourism Organisation and the United Nations.
Whilst the city of Madrid is considered relatively modern, you will find that it has preserved much of its historic character throughout the city.
The weather is mainly dry and very hot in Summer, yet has a fairly cold Winter with regular overnight frosts and the occasional snowfall. Of note is that the nearby mountain ranges receive plenty of snow in Winter.
Key sites to see include the Plaza Mayor – possibly the best known Plaza in the city, the Puerta del Sol – this plaza is at the heart of the city and one of the busiest places that you will come across, being a popular meeting spot for local people, guided tours, festivals and street performances. Note though that this also makes it a popular spot for pickpockets.
Other recommended places to visit are the Catedral de la Almudena, a huge cathedral finished towards the end of the 20th century, and the Gran Via, which is one of the cities most bustling streets and home to numerous shopping malls.
Its economy means that the parcel trade around the city is kept busy, and it is near enough to the UK to offer next day delivery in some cases. The EU free trade agreement means that your shipment should be trouble free, but as ever check with us if in doubt about what you are shipping.

Collected parcel via DHL carrier and…Collected parcel via DHL carrier and posted to Spain . Came 2 days later than agreed postage but I think that was more to do with Spanish bank holidays. Other than that the cost was very good and service very good
