There’s a road in Madrid upon which any lover of art would find themselves overjoyed at the choice of classical masterworks and modern art on view. In the Museo del Prado, Reina Sofía National Museum and Art Center and Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum of Art (all clustered around Metro station: Atocha) are housed some of the finest paintings in the world. Boasting grand displays of talent and beauty, tourists continuously gather in these go-to destinations, gazing at pieces on display in awe.
Collections at the museums include works by iconic Spanish artists Goya and Velázquez alongside Van Gogh, Monet, Mondrian, Dalí, Kandinsky and Miró. The Reina Sofía also includes Pablo Picasso's famed Guernica, making the space a must-visit for any true art connoisseur.
Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, Palacio Real and the Plaza de Colón are all places well worth visiting during a stay in Madrid. They are hugely popular destinations within the city, and not without great reason. Breathtaking architecture is a prominent characteristic of Madrid, and each of these glorious locales boasts striking structures ripe for photo opportunities.
Traditional tapas – or, small sharing plates – are a staple presence in Madrid restaurants; two places to hit for great night of food followed by music are La Latina and Gran Hotel Conde Duque. Young adults fill these stylish bars from 1:00 AM until at least 5:00 AM most nights; remember, Spaniards enjoy late dinners.
