Madrid? what to see? safety issues? restrictions?

I am going to Madrid next month on a business trip that I will extend with some personal time. Naturally I'm bringing a lot of LongTimeNikon gear with me.

Beyond the Prado, can anyone recommend areas or subjects of special photographic interest?

Are there safety issues in walking around in central Madrid or other parts? Daytime? Evening? Nightime? Of course, I expect to be careful with my gear in places like cafes.

As a result of the train bombings a few years ago, do you find the same sort of restrictions and anti-photographer mindset that seems to prevail in the US in various places?

Any other questions that I didn't ask, but should have? Can anyone answer those questions?

In advance, thanks!!
