I stumbled upon this little gem. The Miro’s were great and the photography exhibition was done really well. I will always check see what’s on when I’m in Madrid. 3€ entry was a great surprise.

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.

Went for my eighth time (really enjoyed 6 of the 8). They have wonderfully curated shows. Only costs 3 euro to enter (over 65 2). The current exhibit explores the works of three friends Derain,Balthus and Giacometti. Wish there had been more of Giacometti's sculpture....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
