So much of Spanish history is tied to it's Naval prowess. This museum just blocks away from the Prado and Thyssen should not be missed. Beautiful rooms filled with important artifacts, fascinating ships models, as much world history as Spanish history. The small suggested donation...More

The models and artifacts tell that Spain was once the strongest naval power in the world. The museum is free but please donate 3 Euro to keep it going. It is still a training school for the Spanish Navy.

It's a great attraction for anyone who appreciates the art of scale models, in this case of ships form the last 4 centuries. It also includes the Titanic. There are many models, although the venue is not big. We spent there half an hour. Entrance...More

Chueca
Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where

people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main
thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is
Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables
serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture
of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses
