The museum was inaugurated in 1992 and is located in what was once a hospital.

The museums is host to many contemporary art pieces, as well as artwork from the likes of Picasso, Jean Miro and Salvador Dali. By far the most prized possession in museum collection is without a doubt Picasso’s “Guernica”.

Mercado San Miguel

A mandatory stop for every foodie (or not), here you will be able to have any “Vino” (Spanish word for wine, and one you MUST know when visiting Spain) or beer you wish a long with any “Tapa” (Spanish word for small plate of food, think appetizer.

When you combine many tapas, you have created a great varied meal) Tapas can be served cold or hot and may be consumed at any time, as a meal or snack. El Mercado de San Miguel is a food market that hosts many food vendors that sell a varied selection of typical Spaniard food from seafood, to meats, to olives, cheeses, to desserts including the famed Spanish churros.

Although it would be almost impossible to show you all that Madrid has to offer in just one article, I hope I have inspired you to venture from your usual vacation and jump to the other side of the ocean, where this vibrant city and culture awaits you. This without first taking you to one of the world heritage cities just outside of Madrid.
