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
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

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
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
here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
