Driving around Madrid

If you plan to visit Madrid and arrive by car, you should pay attention to certain aspects of movement, traffic and parking. These are complicated taking into account the huge movement of vehicles that takes place daily through its streets and the large influx of people from outside who come to the city, either for work during the week, or for tourism on weekends mainly.

In addition, in the centre of Madrid there are several Residential Priority Areas (APR) established, where only residents and authorized vehicles can circulate (for example, those who go to one of the car parks that are within these areas).
