Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia
Home to Spains most famous painting – Guernica by Picasso, as well as a large collection of Spanish modern art the other Picasso works. Other artists within include Miro and Dali
Puerta del Sol
One of the Madrids largest and liveliest squares. Reminds one of Times Square in NYC with the mobs of people, locals, tourists, and people dressed in costumes looking for money. Also lots of street performers and despite the crowds, less concerned about crime and pickpockets here.
Taberna del Chato
Great place for lots of tapas and small bites at a reasonable price.
Rosi La Loca Taberna
Vintage and tropical inspired tapas bar that serves amazing food of all kinds. Also very reasonable.
Highly recommended and tons of locals. Artsy interior with great Galician food. Its a bit of a walk but worth it.
La Mi Venta
Lovely place with indoor and outdoor seating again depending on the weather. Wonderful food and service and reasonable cost.
