I always try to pop in to have a look at the photos at the Fundación MAPFRE when I'm in Madrid but this was the first time that I realised it is free entry on Monday afternoons. Excellent photos, nice place, busy enough but hardly...More

My wife and I went to see the Derain exhibition. Other artists of the same era were Balthus and Giacometti. This exhibition was interesting because there have been few exhibitions in Madrid about these artists.

I love Madrid. Every time my partner and I visit we discover new districts, new little corners and new attractions. This was one of them. Not sure why we had never visited before. This is one of two major exhibition spaces owned by the Mapfre...More

I liked the fact that I could go through the museum in under an hour. It is in a great location and definitely has some interesting art work.

Fundación Mapfre can easily have one of the best collection of Miró paintings in the world. Ticket are more than reasonable and staff extremely friendly. Do make an effort to visit this small, but lovely Museum...

Our visit to Fundacion Mapfre Recoletos was spur of the moment. We had reservations for an English speaking tour of Casa Museo Lope de Vega, but the single English speaking guide called in sick that day. We attended an excellent Lewis Hine's exhibit at the...More

This is a site to check out if you are in Madrid. The location hosts temporary exhibits which are varied at intervals throughout the year. Invariably they bring together quality exhibits often drawn from private connections that give a good overview of an artist or...More

Chueca is the hip, gay neighborhood of Madrid where

thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is
Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables
serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture
of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses
