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

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

Always an interesting exhibition. Well curated, with audioguides. just big enough to satisfy your interest. it used to be free, but it is still excellent for 3 euros. worth checking what is on. The shop is also good.

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 neighbourhood of Madrid where
many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where
the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and
people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main
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
