Museo de la Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando is a less visited art gallery and museum but it contains a lot of interesting art from the great Spanish painters, which can be enjoyed more easily without the crowds in the Prado.

Can I admit I enjoyed it more than the Prado? An opportunity to learn about Goya and others in a more intimate setting. The museum staff were personable and helpful. I strongly recommend.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
