  • Madrid is a great metropolis and the Paseo del Prado is the great cultural vein which concentrated various museums. It is remarkable to say, that the Thyssen-Bornemiza, although it is facing one of the most famous and visited, never lose relevance or presence. Let's start with the exposed cultural heritage, a rich private collection that is broken down chronologically cured of sober and simple, so that the viewer can decide which picture is which most interested and thus appreciate the art of so many centuries, we continue with the building itself, an exceptional restoration that preserves the original shape and renews the spaces to have the appropriate distribution of exhibition areas Let's end with enlargement and not less interesting area of the cafeteria, which is nicely integrated into the original buildings, with garden and invites the public to end the visit with a delicious coffee. Not to be missed.

  • Wonderful private collection of paintings spanning five centuries of Western art. From pre-Renaissance Italian works to French Impressionism and American abstract expressionism, the Thyssen museum carries a remarkable series of paintings laid out chronologically from some of the best artists in history. Here's a quick tip: there's free entrance on Mondays from 12-4pm. Definitely worth spending 1-2 hours here.
  • It's awesome. The free hours are on Monday until 16:00. But they let everyone go on 15:55. We didn't manage to get to the third floor, but the first two are just great.
  • I could be here the whole day and be amazed by all the beautiful art! Will definitely come back.
  • It was a nice place. Maybe 8-10 valuable paintings. Enjoyed.
  • Amazing permanent collection, very neat arrangement which makes you take into account the progression of art through the the centuries. Unique!

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
