Design: Migma Hydrogen-Powered Catamaran By RUMA In Madrid, Spain

Migma is the greek word for mixture, an evocation to the life of the sea through structural bionic elements where the rationality of the technique is mixed with the fluidity of nature, represented by this noiseless Hydrogen-powered 180 feet electric Catamaran as a living  entity that furrows the seas with zero emissions.

Migma catamaran is based on a minimalist and high-end aesthetic, creating a new way to understand spaces within a catamaran, where the core structure is located in the middle and all elements grow from it.

Views: Retiro Park & Paseo Del Prado In Madrid, Spain

UNESCO has added Madrid’s historic Paseo del Prado boulevard and Retiro Park to its list of world heritage sites.

The Buen Retiro Park, Retiro Park or simply El Retiro is one of the largest parks of the city of Madrid, Spain. The park belonged to the Spanish Monarchy until the late 19th century, when it became a public park. In 2021, Buen Retiro Park became part of a combined UNESCO World Heritage Site with Paseo del Prado.

The Paseo del Prado is one of the main boulevards in Madrid, Spain. It runs north–south between the Plaza de Cibeles and the Plaza del Emperador Carlos V (also known as Plaza de Atocha), with the Plaza de Cánovas del Castillo (the location of the Fuente de Neptuno, and of the Ritz and Palace five-star hotels) lying approximately in the middle. The Paseo del Prado forms the southern end of the city’s central axis (which continues to the north of Cibeles as the Paseo de Recoletos, and further north as the Paseo de la Castellana). It enjoys the status of Bien de Interés Cultural (BIC), and as part of a combined UNESCO World Heritage Site with Buen Retiro Park.

Aerial Travel: Madrid, Barcelona & Cadiz, Spain

Madrid – Madrid is by far the largest city in Spain with a population of over 3.3 million. While the size of the place might seem intimidating to some, there is a vast amount to see in this fine European capital. Getting around is also fairly straightforward thanks to the city having a superb metro system. Whether you’re looking for an unforgettable party holiday or a cultural visit to some of Spain’s best known landmarks, Madrid has everything to offer. Among the many sites to see in Madrid is the enormous central square (Plaza Mayor), the stunning Royal Palace, the Puerta de Alcala and the Plaza de Cibeles.

Barcelona – Barcelona is Spain’s second-largest city with a population of about two million. It is the capital of the region of Catalonia and you’ll hear the Catalan language being spoken here considerably more often than you’ll hear Spanish. The city offers plenty of sightseeing opportunities and a legendary nightlife scene. Barcelona was first established as a Roman town about 2,000 years ago. Sightseeing in Barcelona largely revolves around the Old Town, known locally as “Cuitat Vella.” The area is also home to the Barri Gotic, the city’s Gothic Quarter. One of Spain’s most famous landmarks, La Sagrada Familia is also located in Barcelona. One of the most stunning structures in the world, the church has been under construction since 1882 and is only now nearing completion.

Cadiz – For lovers of history, Cadiz certainly won’t disappoint. Founded by the Phoenicians as early as 1104BC, it is the oldest continuously inhabited city in the Iberian Peninsula. The city is located in the very south of Spain. It has a population of only 130,000 making it an easy place to explore on foot. Cadiz boasts a vast number of historical landmarks including the central Plaza de Mina, the Plaza de San Antonio, Cadiz Cathedral, the Roman theatre, the City Walls and the Fortress of Candelaria. Cadiz is also home to some of Spain’s best beaches, especially the Playa de la Caleta. Another popular beach is the Playa de la Victoria, a three kilometer stretch of sand near the city.
