Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum

Located at the Villahermosa Palace, this museum is less famous than the Prado and the Reina Sofia museums, but in no way less fabulous. It is actually a very pleasant visit, since the smaller setting allows a more personal appreciation of the high quality masterpieces by Picasso, Van Gogh, Rubens and Caravaggio, amongst others, that are on display. Curators prepare special thematic exhbitions and you can also find interesting guided tours or tailor made programs for groups. Spend some time in the garden outside and try the in-house café that serves very good food. Madrileños have a special fondness for the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and we have come to agree with them, certainly well worth a visit.

Paseo del Prado 8, Madrid.
