Madrid Photography Tour: Places To Photograph

Madrid photography tour options can be a great way for a vacationing tourist with a keen interest in photography to experience the Spanish capital. Madrid offers many beautiful, intriguing and unique sights that are definitely worth capturing on film. However, a tour guide with experience of photography can help make these photos even better.

That's because photography tours are run by experts who understand the importance of good lighting and location. This isn't just exclusive to Madrid; it could be said for all photography tours Europe wide. And Madrid is no different. While there are many obvious sights to see that are often pushed by the mainstream tours, a photo tour can allow you to see the large sights from different perspectives that suit the lens better than the naked eye. Experts are local to the area and will know the best times to achieve optimal light levels to make for the most impactful photography. They will also be able to take you and your party to locations off the tourist track. Take, for example, the Templo de Debod which offers simply stunning shots at sunset. For those interested in fauna and floral photography, Parque del Oeste's Rosaleda Gardens offer a chance to stroll through 30,000 square meters of roses and beautiful flowers. For nature photography combined with architecture, Palacio de Cristal is a 'crystal palace' made in the late 19th century from glass and wrought-iron. It sits in the middle of lovely El Retiro park, offering a glimpse of Madrid's citizens relaxing and having fun.
