  • Aside from the Museum that is definitely what I like most is the vertical wall full of vegetation. So beautiful as to seem composed of fake plants and instead is pure vegetation. As I said last time, a nice shot of color in this corner of the city from there then walk you can delve in all streets of Madrid where you can find plenty of places to eat or just drink a tea. It is not a main attraction but miss it I think it's a sin

  • It was a very good idea to make a garden on the wall. Looks fantastic in a sunny day. U can seat there with a cup of coffee and relax 
  • Very nice building and a great show. The shop had a great choice of art for sale and some really interesting exhibits.
