Art in Madrid Spain

Few cities can rival Madrid’s renowned Paseo del Arte, or “Golden Triangle of Art,” formed by three of the most important art museums in the world located about 10 minutes apart. The three major stops include: The Prado, a magnificent bastion housing classics from Velazquez, Goya, El Greco, and others; the Reina Sofia National Museum showcasing contemporary icons, such as Picasso and Miro; and the wonderful Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum featuring Gothic and Renaissance pieces. Along the Art Walk, there are also radar-worthy smaller galleries, cutting-edge foundations, and cultural institutes, including Matadero Madrid and CaixaForum, which is hosting “Federico Fellini: Circus of Illusions” until December 26.
