“Top contemporary art museum in Madrid. Always featuring interesting activities and concerts ”
“It is widely considered to have one of the world's finest collections of European art, dating from the 12th century to the early 20th century, based on the former Spanish Royal Collection, and the single best collection of Spanish art. ”
“With over 1,600 paintings, it was once the second largest private collection in the world after the British Royal Collection. A competition was held to house the core of the collection in 1987–88 after Baron Thyssen, having tried to enlarge his Museum in Lugano(Villa Favorita), searched for a location in Europe. The Thyssen-Bornemisza fills the historical gaps in its counterparts' collections: in the Prado's case this includes Italian primitives and works from the English, Dutch and German schools, while in the case of the Reina Sofia it concerns Impressionists, Expressionists, and European and American paintings from the 20th century. ”
“Located in the center of Madrid, the royal botanical garden gives visitors the chance to enjoy the peace and quiet of being immersed in nature. While the garden has species dating back more than two centuries for visitors to enjoy, it is also the home to both researchers and botanists. A great collection of plants and flowers from the Americas and the Pacific, including Europa's most ancient magnolia.”
“A cultural center where you can have a coffee and do some laptop work (free wifi), there is also a rooftop area to enjoy a drink at. Just check times, as it is closed and/or has special events frequently. ”
