 World Events, May , Madrid Labour Day
 

Event Information:

 

The Fiesta del Trabajo, or Labour Day is celebrated in Madrid every year on the first weekend in May. As a public holiday, shops and banks will be closed, but bars and restaurants mostly remain open on one of their busiest days as the residents of the city come out in large numbers to celebrate the day with their family and friends.

The city of Madrid is located on the Manzanares river in the centre of both the country and the Community of Madrid (which comprises the city of Madrid, its conurbation and extended suburbs and villages); this community is bordered by the autonomous communities of Castile and León and Castile-La Mancha. As the capital city of Spain, seat of government, and residence of the Spanish monarch, Madrid is also the political center of Spain.[17] The current mayor is Alberto Ruiz-Gallardón from the People's Party.

While Madrid possesses a modern infrastructure, it has preserved the look and feel of many of its historic neighbourhoods and streets. Its landmarks include the Royal Palace of Madrid; the Teatro Real (Royal theatre) with its restored 1850 Opera House; the Buen Retiro park, founded in 1631; the 19th-century National Library building (founded in 1712) containing some of Spain's historical archives; an archaeological museum; and the Golden Triangle of Art, located along the Paseo del Prado and comprising three art museums: Prado Museum, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, a museum of modern art, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, housed in the renovated Villahermosa Palace.
