Madrid is a vibrant tourist city that is one of the top tourist destinations in the world.

Madrid, being part of Europe, has one of the world’s largest international airports and with good flight connections.

Madrid also has an emotional and spiritual connection with Latin America. Spain is a natural bridge to Europe and the rest of the world for Latin America.

Madrid is also geographically close to Africa. Millions of people each year cross over by boat between Spain and northern Africa. Spain even has two cities that are geographically within Northern Africa. (Ceuta and Melilla).

Spain is also home to some of Europe’s fastest growing churches and, as a whole, the Assemblies of God of Spain is one of the fastest growing church movements in Europe.

Madrid is an international and cosmopolitan city with a rich history and is filled with tourist attractions that foster the presence of travellers. Prices in Spain are some of the most economical within Europe.

We believe that the 9th World Assemblies of God Congress will be a unique event for our churches, be welcome to Madrid for “Unlimited 2020: Unleashing Our Potential”!

Documentation

Spain was one of the first parties to join the Schengen Agreement, which abolished internal borders, enabling passport-free movement between a large number of European countries. If you’re a citizen of a non-Schengen country, you must check, with enough time in advance, with the Spanish Embassy in your home country whether you need a visa.
