    The Prado Museum

    115 reviews

    The Prado was my main reason for stopping in Madrid en route to Barcelona. The entire collection is magnificent, and one of my two favorite paintings in the world happens to be housed there - The Garden of Earthly Delights. The museum does not permit photography, so be stealthy with a small point and shoot (NO FLASH) if you're so ...

    Market of San Miguel

    82 reviews

    In the morning light this mercado is perfectly photogenic so bring your favorite camera. There's just something beautiful about neat rows of vegetables, black and white tiles shining cuts of meat. It makes an omnivore want to cook, and eat, of course. In the meantime, take a few photos.

    Basílica de San Francisco El Grande

    8 reviews

    San Francisco El Grande is without a doubt my favorite church in Madrid - and it doesn't receive the recognition that it deserves! Just down the street from the Almudena Cathedral, the smaller church often gets overshadowed. While its exterior may pale in comparison, you will fall in love with the interior. And, the last time I went, it was ...

    Wow! This was the largest gathering of people I have ever seen in one place! Not so good if you are claustrophobic. This is the largest flea market in Europe. It is divided into sections (food,shoes,clothing). I have been twice and still haven't seen it all. You WILL lose your friends...

    Plaza de Oriente

    Lovely plaza with a cool statute of Felipe IV designed by the great Velazquez and in front of the Palacio Real, Spain's attempt to create its own Versailles. The palace is obviously worth checking out, as is the nearby Teatro Real.

    Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza

    My favorite museum in Madrid and one of the best in the world. It's hard to believe that it was once a private collection! It is organized chronologically, and it is like walking through a timeline of art with some of the worlds most accomplished artists in front of your eyes. Don't miss it!
