  • Is a small museum, and interesting. Admission is free. Is in a region where there are many bars and restaurants. If you have time, it's worth the visit.

  • Why is it not more known? With the history of the origins of the cities, beautiful models, the well where the patron saint of the city realized his first miracle, paintings of Goya... In addition the entry is not paid! It's not very big and the visit will not take more than an hour. Really surprising and awesome. Kind and caring personal

  • Not much to see.
  • Beautiful Museum of the origins of Madrid (also called Museum of San Isidro). Every corner is worthwhile but if you had to choose I would stay with its garden, where through the history of Madrid through its Botany, and store, place in which are stacked neatly countless pieces worthy of being observed

  • STOP 3.-PLAZA DE SAN ANDRÉS: MUSEUM OF SAN ISIDRO. On the way to the Plaza de Carros, it is worthwhile to stop at the jewelery and ornament shop "of stone", in The No. 10 of the street of the almond tree. Its facade is constructed from black slate, and can be observed areas of network color Due to the oxidation of the slate
