Art Walk in Madrid

The most awaited long weekend since the summer holidays, but also the most atypical to date. From Be my Driver we suggest you take advantage of the confinement of Madrid to make those plans that are always pending. How about a walk and art?

A little bit of the Art Walk in Madrid

Many European capitals are noted for their impressive museums and galleries, but when it comes to Madrid, there is something curiously unique. You can walk down a street and find three of its most illustrious museums and some of its best-known cultural centres not far away. 

The Paseo del Arte is one of the best ideas to enjoy Madrid and the best masterpieces without leaving your seat. 

Reina Sofia Museum

  • One of Madrid's greats, the Reina Sofía specialises in 20th century Spanish art. This is one of the largest museums in the world dedicated to modern art, a pretty impressive feat for a museum that opened relatively recently, in 1992. Inside you can find works by Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí and other bold names. If you've never visited, don't miss the masterpieces that focus on feminism, dreams, the Spanish Civil War and, in particular, Picasso's "Guernica". 

However, it is necessary to to book a ticket

Following the Art walk that we have marked the next stop would be...

 

Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum

  • We continue our art walk and arrive at a former aristocratic mansion converted into the Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum.
  • This museum is somewhere in between the avant-garde works in the Reina Sofia and traditional Spanish art at the Prado. With a huge collection of European art from the continent's most respected masters, the museum is a must-see for anyone.
