This venue is a great spot to put your finger on the pulse of Madrid’s art scene. Constructed in 1887, it is an outpost of the Reina Sofía museum and is one of our favorite places in the city to take check out new exhibits. It’s right in the middle of the Retiro park, so you can stop in as while you take a stroll. The space is light-filled, and most often showcases larger installation pieces, sculptures and shows specifically designed to complement the atrium-like space.
The capital city is one of the most expensive in Spain, but that doesn’t mean you have to empty your pockets to enjoy all the city has to offer. This is our comprehensive guide filled with museums, clubs, parks, landmarks, monuments and much more that you can visit without spending a single euro.
