On our trip to Morocco, exploring Chefchaouen, Fes, and the Sahara Desert our flight to Marrakech included a layover in Madrid. We’d have a full 12 hours of daytime to explore.


How to Get There

You can spend one day in Madrid if you’re in Barcelona by taking the train over. From Barcelona, you can also take a 1 hour and 30-minute flight to spend one day in Madrid. 

Where to Store Your Luggage

If you’re team carry-on only like we are or if your luggage doesn’t go through to your final destination you can store your luggage at the airport. 

To get to and from the airport you can take a taxi which is a flat fee of 30 Euro. An alternative to save money is taking public transportation via the train/metro.
