I didn't see the whole area, but it was so refreshing to get out of the train station, lots of people and a bit lost to then arrive to this little oasis. It was so so pretty and inspiriting.

This "art gallery" belongs to the Community of Madrid and it offers free exhibitions about modern art, about 4 a year. Big names (Brian Eno, Annie Leibovitz...) have had exhibitions here the last years, but other exhibitions equally are worth the visit. I cannot remember having been once to one where at least one work didn´t impress me. Don´t forget... More

The Sala Alcala 31 is owned by the Ayuntamiento of Madrid and there are always free art exhibits here. This is a service to visitors who enjoy art.

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
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 desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
