MADRID

Welcome to the Museo del Prado, an almost bicentennial institution whose origin and powerful uniqueness owes much to the tastes of the monarchs of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The collecting then differed from the current one. Without encyclopedic pretenses, he aspired to gather as many works as possible of the favorite artists. This explains why the Prado has said that it is a museum of painters, not paintings, because the represented artists tend to be superlative, being able to boast of having the largest sets of El Bosco, Tiziano, El Greco, Rubens, Velázquez or Goya , sometimes with more than a hundred works.

The Thyssen-Bornemisza collection is one of the most important private collections of paintings gathered in the 20th century, and the history of its development is undoubtedly one of the most fascinating collections. Although its origin is private, the collection belongs to all Spaniards today, after its acquisition by the State in 1993, only one after the opening of the Madrid Museum. Duccio, Van Eyck, Carpaccio, Durero, Caravaggio, Rubens, Sargent, Monet, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Kirchner, Mondrian, Klee, Hopper ... are just some of the great names of the painting whose work can be seen in the museum. About a thousand works that allow to go through the history of Western painting from the thirteenth century to the twentieth.

The Reina Sofía Museum Collection begins in the late nineteenth century, posing the conflicts between a dominant modernity understood as progress and its multiple discontents, being an ideology in constant contestation on both the social and political, cultural and artistic fronts. The vanguard, in its reinvention of the subject, the public and the artistic milieu, becomes a symptom of the new twentieth century. An excellent modern art collection, the most important piece being Picasso's Guernica.

The CaixaForum Madrid building, conceived by the architects Herzog & de Meuron, is an open space for the production and dissemination of culture in its broadest sense. The center is located inside the "Art Triangle", next to the Reina Sofía National Art Center Museum, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the Prado National Museum. On the old industrial building of the Central Eléctrica del Mediodía, in 2008 CaixaForum Madrid opened its doors converted into a cultural space and architectural work of reference. The building rests on a large square in which stands out a spectacular vertical garden of 24 meters high, the work of Patrick Blanc, where 15,000 plants of 250 different species coexist.
