An absolutely amazing collection of modern art, including Picasso's Guernica (and several of his preparatory sketches for it). Vast number of works by Spanish artists, including a good selection from the Spanish Republic. Don't miss the huge Calder in the courtyard (and other sculptures). Several...More

Museo Nacional Centro de Reina Sofia excels in its sober grandeur. Part of Madrid’s busy museum scene, a visit to this site is must if you’re interested in art. But more importantly it showcases Pablo Picasso’s largest painting “Guernika” (1937) after bombing of Guernika small...More

I was staying at a hotel about 1-1/2 miles away and decided to check this out. It's a former hospital. The collection is mixed; a few excellent pieces and a lot of other pieces not so great. The layout is very confusing given the former...More

Paseo del Prado
The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard
is much-visited by both locals and tourists. The
world-famous Prado, the Reina Sofia, and the
Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and
culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On
weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free
after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue
of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de
