Madrid

Madrid is the capital of Spain and the country's third largest city. It has a population of over 3 million people, making it the second largest in Spain. Madrid is also known as the "city of arts" or "the brain", because it's home to many companies that produce TV series and movies. The city has an international airport called Adolfo Suarez Madrid-Barajas Airport that receives thousands of tourists each year.

Madrid was founded in 1561 by King Philip II after he defeated his brother Don Carlos during a civil war between Catholics and Protestants (called "The Spanish War"). To commemorate this victory, King Philip II decided to build a palace on top of hills near Manzanares River where he could view all parts of his kingdom from one place. This palace became known as Palacio Real de Madrid ("Royal Palace") which still stands today along with other historic sites such as Plaza Mayor square where bullfighting takes place before crowds every Sunday afternoon

Barcelona

Barcelona is one of the most beautiful cities in Spain and arguably the best city to visit. It has a lot of history and culture, it's a great place to go shopping, and it’s a great place to go out at night. The architecture is also beautiful, especially on La Rambla Street where you can find many shops and restaurants.

It's also very easy to get around Barcelona because they have an efficient subway system that costs only 2 euros per ride (or 1 euro if you buy tickets in bulk).

Seville

Seville is the capital of the Andalusia region and is a city of culture and history. It's home to the largest cathedral in the world, La Giralda, which towers over Seville's skyline. The city also has an amazing street art scene and vibrant nightlife that attracts people from all around Spain, who come to see what Seville has to offer.

Seville underwent significant urban development during medieval times due to its strategic location along trade routes between Africa, Europe and America (the Americas). This rapid expansion enabled Sevillians to generate wealth from various industries such as silk production or shipbuilding. In fact, so many ships were built here that Seville became known as "The Shipyard."
