Beautifully sparse design to the building's exterior, but packed with wonderfully thought-provoking modern art, and supremely situated within sight of the Monasteirio - and also within walking distance of a great natas shop :) Henry Moore, Picasso, Modigliani plus loads of interesting stuff. Definitely recommended

An impressive collection of modern and contemporary art from the 1960s to the present, housed in an amazing building. Get away from the crowds of tourists outside and give yourself a treat.
