Madrid and its “Paseo del Arte” (The local name given to the distance between the top 3 art galleries in Madrid (The Prado Museum, the Thyssen Bornemiza, and the Reina Sofía Museum) set Madrid amongst the top art destinations in the world. Enjoying art is one of the top things to do in Madrid.
Besides these 3 top museums, there are other smaller art galleries which would stand out in most cities in the world: The Real Academis de San Fernando, the Lazaro Galdiano museum he Casa Sorolla museum and the Cerralbo Museum.
Something that we enjoy a lot about the art galleries in Madrid is the diversity you will enjoy. Each of the above mentioned Museums have such a different personality and collection that all could be visited. Let´s start with the smallest: the Sorolla Museum is actually located at the small palace where the artist lived. Along with his fantastic art the visitor enjoys a unique experience admiring the environment. The Real Academia de San Fernando does not “just” hold the second largest collection of art from Goya, but also the place where top artists like Dali and Picasso studied, an actual academy and a place to enjoy sculpture, photography, many fantastic objects and one of the world´s most important copper plates collections.
