My wife and I have seen this museum many times and we decided to see it again this December. There are many paintings that I enjoyed, specially the ones by Vicente Lopez and Zurbaran.

Museo de la Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando is a less visited art gallery and museum but it contains a lot of interesting art from the great Spanish painters, which can be enjoyed more easily without the crowds in the Prado.

Can I admit I enjoyed it more than the Prado? An opportunity to learn about Goya and others in a more intimate setting. The museum staff were personable and helpful. I strongly recommend.

went to visit during free wednesday, not many people though so it was an enjoyable and quiet visit. Has 3 floors. Might take you 2-3 hours to see everything. The building itself is beautiful too!!!

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide

it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
