XX century and contemporary art museum

The Reine Sofia museum (Queen Sogia Museum) was inaugurated on 1992. Is the 3 angle of the “Madrid art triangle”, compose by the Prado museum and the Thyssen-Bornemisza museum the all 3 are in a 10 minutes’ walk distance.

On the permanent collection the most relevant artist are Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali and Joan Miro represented by some of their best paintings. Just an example, you will find here “Guernica” painted by Pablo Picasso.

There are also collections from surrealist artist like Francis Picabia, René Magritte, Oscar Dominguez or Yves Tanguy.

Besides Pablo Picasso, there are other cubist artists like Juan Gris, George Braque, Robert Delaunay, Fernand Léger or Albert Gleizes. At last but not least you will also find some expressionist artists like Francis Bacon and Antonio Saura.

There are also other artist trends represented in the Reina Sofia museum, a non-exhaustive list will be: Lucio Fontana, Yves Klein, Diego Ribera, Alexander Calder, Roberto Matta, Mark Rothko, Antonio López Garcia, Antoni Tápies, Miquel Barcelo and Sam Francis.

La Latina: Madrid’s Beating Heart neighborhood

Imagine strolling down narrow, sun-drenched streets lined with buildings that whisper tales of medieval times. La Latina isn't just a tourist trap; it's a living, breathing tapestry of history, pulsing with the energy of locals going about their day. Around every corner, you'll stumble upon charming plazas teeming with life, bustling bars overflowing with laughter, and enough tapas bars to make your stomach growl a flamenco.

Order a plate of patatas bravas (spicy potatoes – perfect for soaking up the sangria!), melt-in-your-mouth croquetas (fried ham and béchamel croquettes – because duh!), and juicy grilled chorizo, and thank me later.
