Art Attack

Madrid is worth a visit for the art alone according the article.

“Plaza Mayor is arguably Madrid’s most iconic destination, a 17th century square now used for everything from special events to a meeting place for locals. The 16th century Palacio Real de Madrid is the largest royal palace in Europe with a staggering 3,418 rooms and is well worth a visit. It hosts state ceremonies and boasts an impressive art collection with pieces by the likes of Caravaggio and Goya.” Madrid, Spain

It goes on to say “Art is one of Madrid’s great selling points”.

“It’s home to three of the world’s best galleries. More than two million people visit Museo del Prado each year, and its collection of more than 8,000 drawings, 7,000 paintings and 4,000 prints.Nearby are another 1,000 great paintings at the fabulous Thyssen museum and, for those who prefer modern art, there’s the Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, a stylised and striking sight that is home to some of Picasso and Dali’s most famous works.”
