A must see when in Madrid. One of Europe's greatest art collections. Ask at your hotel, there are some days in the week when entry is free!
We slipped in an afternoon visit on our last day in Madrid. I wish we had skipped the other 2 galleries and spent all our time here! I would come back to this beautiful art gallery in a heart beat (if I could). There is only one gallery you must see in Madrid- this is it!!
