4. Visit the Golden Tri­an­gle of Art

HK Magazine - - TRAVEL -

There are three ma­jor art gal­leries in Madrid within a 10-minute walk from each other, and guides will tell you that they’re all a must-visit. But re­al­is­ti­cally, hit­ting up the Prado, the Reina Sofia and the Thyssen-Borne­misza in a sin­gle visit is pretty im­pos­si­ble—so pick the one which best suits your art in­ter­ests. If it’s old-school Velazquez, El Greco and Goya you’re after, the Prado’s for you. If Span­ish art means Pi­casso and Dalí to you—and you feel the need to be over­whelmed by Pi­casso’s enor­mous, legendary “Guer­nica,” then the Reina Sofia is where you need to be. Want some­thing in be­tween? The pri­vately-owned ThyssenBorne­misza fills in the gaps, and tends to be a lot less crowded.
