My wife and I went to see the Archeological Museum and enjoyed it very much. The statue of the Dama de Elche was very good. Also the statue of the Lady of Baza and that of the Great Lady Offerant were also wonderful. The Pozo...More
There is also an excellent video about how they managed the collection during the Spanish Civil War. In a city that never mentions Franco, they describe the relentless bombing and destruction by Franco, and how they looked after the objects
this is a superb museum and suitable for young teenagers as well as raging pensioner.
Excellent prehistory section that sets the seen for the deeper historical sections later. Everything from 120,000BC up to the present day. Great collection of preRoman and Roman era material.

Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights frame the neighbourhood of Barrio Salamanca. With beautiful condominium buildings that make up most blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of
opportunities for shopping or checking out the stylish displays. The locals here are polished and fashionable, the atmosphere is leisurely, and the lush Retiro Park on the southern border is yet another opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. A stroll through Barrio Salamanca is all about admiring the beautiful architecture, window-shopping, and people-watching in this upper-crust corner of Madrid.
