And they are FREE!
Depending on the device (computer, laptop, smartphone, tablet) you are using, click or tap on the map you want to open. Then, mark it as a favorite. This way it will synchronize with your Google account.

Customized Spain Traveller maps of Madrid Spain
I always begin the travel planning process with a map.
Regardless of where I’m thinking of travelling, I’ll always turn to Google. My technique for travel planning with maps starts with tracing my eyes across a country or a city as a whole, then I zoom into more specific areas and see what’s around.
By using these maps, you’ll have the power to decide the journey you want to take through Madrid…
- Sights and museums. You can see where each highlight, tourist attraction and museum is located, and obtain more information about them by clicking or tapping on each icon.
- Madrid Hotels. This hotel map shows where the hotels I recommend are located in Madrid, including my favorite ones… So you can make sure that you’re based exactly where you to be before you book on your trip.
- Flamenco shows in Madrid. My essential guide to flamenco in Madrid includes a personal selection of what I consider the best flamenco shows in the city. Here you have all of them located in a cool map.
How to use the Spain Traveller Maps
When you look for accurate information on Madrid Traveller from your computer, tablet or smartphone, using one map or another may not matter. But when you’re on the road, you often look up directions on your smartphone (or any other device) using Google Maps.
So wouldn’t it be cool to have all these recommendations integrated into Google Maps? That’s what I thought.
Have a look at the different layers of each map
Each map includes not only places to visit but tons of other interesting things. Take the time to navigate through all the layers that the maps have because you will find a great deal of practical information.
How to save the Spain Traveller Maps into your Google Maps app
Here is how any of the Spain Traveller Maps looks like.
To do this, have a look at the star that is next to the name of the map. Click (or tap) on this star and you will add the map to your Google account. This will automatically synchronize it with your Google Maps application on your smartphone (or any other device).
On your smartphone, open your Google Maps app and tap “Saved”. Then, swipe the top menu to the left to get to the “Maps” menu.
Tap on the Maps menu to get to all the Google Maps synchronized to your account. Then, tap the map you want to display on the screen on your device.
If you want to check all the details, tap the “View map legend” option to access the map legend, as you can see in the right screenshot above.
This means that all the contents included in this map that I produce and update will be available to you along with the rest of the information in Google Maps. Everything will be in the same place, so you don’t have to worry about anything or change any app.
It couldn’t be easier!
