Motorways in the Madrid area
Madrid is a maze of motorways, and unless you really want to drive into Madrid, then the best bit of advice is "Don't".  The M50, which is just visible in the bottom corner of this plan, goes 80% of the way round Madrid, and is the outer orbital motorway - and for this reason less busy than the M30 or M40.
   Most motorways in the Madrid urban area are free, but the radial "R" motorways are toll, as are some of the M motorways - but not the orbitals.
