Coslada is a city located on the outskirts of the city of Madrid about 20 minutes from the capital's centre by car. The city is known as a dry port and an ideal travel base for visiting the capital city due to its close proximity to it. Coslada is connected to Madrid via the metro lines, commuter trains and regional bus networks although many travellers opt for car hire in order to get around the region.
For travellers who don't want to stay within the chaotic city centre in Madrid, Coslada makes for a great starting point for touring the area. From the city, travellers can drive to the city of Madrid and visit some of its most notable attractions such as the Royal Palace or the Golden Museum Triangle which comprises the world renowned Prado Museum, the National Museum and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum. Be sure to visit the National Archaeology Museum, Puerta del Sol and the Real Academia de Bella Artes de San Fernando.
To the other side of Coslada is another notable day trip destination, the Alcala de Henares. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is known for being the birthplace of Cervantes, the famous writer who created the classic Quixote. The town is about 30 minutes to the east of Coslada by car.
