- ●● Tentative
The coordinates shown for all tentative sites were produced as a community effort. They are not official and may change on inscription.
I did have to research Google Maps, Wikipedia, and old pictures to make sure I visited this nomination. Though most visitors of Madrid will have strolled in and around much of the nomination, since it also includes Madrid's most iconic museums.

At the time of my visit in 2007, I was far too inexperienced to identify and truly appreciate the architecture of this great capital. While I think it will certainly be a long shot for inscription, this large portion of Madrid is worth exploring and I remember much of my visit as enjoyable. Indeed, being so new to most European city centers, Madrid was quite impressive.
