Madrid is the capital and largest city of Spain, with a population of more than 3 million, making it the third-most populous city in the European Union. The city is located in the center of Spain and as the capital is, naturally, the political center of the country.
Significantly, Madrid is also an economic powerhouse with the 4th largest gross domestic product in Europe. The presence of a major financial center makes an LLM in Madrid a compelling choice.
Madrid is a beautiful city which is positively steeped in history, while managing to remain thoroughly modern at the same time. Because it has preserved many of its historic neighborhoods and buildings, an LLM in Madrid means students can experience such landmarks as the Town Hall (Palacio de Telecomunicaciones), the Buen Retiro Park, the Plaza Mayor, the National Library, the Royal Theatre, the Royal Palace, the Prado Museum, and much more. Moreover, the continental climate makes an LLM in Madrid inviting. The city is mainly dry and hot in the summer, with fairly cold temperatures and frequent rain in winter, though most rainfall is in the spring and fall.
