“Art Deco & Art”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2009

The Circulo de Bellas Artes is a public art center a few steps from the Prado and Banco España towards Puerta del Sol. It occupies a rather nice Art Deco building.

For the symbolic price of 1 Euro you can see its exhibitions which range from the strange to the fascinating. Right now, up to end August you can spend 2 Euros which gives you also access to its roof terrace - *highly recommended* with a beautiful view over Madrid.

Finally there is the cafe with its very interesting interior. One of the nicest looking in Madrid, although the service isn't always perfect.

If you explore Madrid in 24 hours, you probably have more pressing targets than the Circulo. But with a bit more time, the exhbitions and cafe might make a nice change after having walked yourself to exhaustion in the Prado,
