Museo del Prado

One of the sites not to miss in Madrid is the Museo del Prado. This construction is not to turn the museum into a museum of Modern Art, but is for maintenance purposes.

Painting by El Greco

This is a painting of El Greco, to be seen in the Museo del Prado.

If you prefer modern art, you better visit the Thyssen-Bornemisza museum, which has some Miró's, or the Mueso de la Escultura Abstracta, with work by some of Spain's better known modern sculptors.

Dos Leones

This lion is very close to the hotel where a very large crowd of 13-year-old girls were waiting for a glimpse of their idols: the Backstreet Boys. Our estimate of how many 13-year-old Spanish girls were present in this street: probably all of them.

Palacio Real de Madrid

This impressive building is the palace of the king, but probably there isn't always a crowd in front of it. We have absolutely no idea what was going on here; maybe those Backstreet Boys again.

El Retiro

Tired of walking and culture, the park offers boating, fortune-tellers, palm-readers, ice-cream parlors and shadow under the trees.
