    A must-see on a visit to Madrid. A delightful museum displaying the extensive furnishing of a wealthy household of the 19th century.

    This small square in madrid is surrounded by small bars and specialty shops. A nice place to relax and drink some refreshments, while time goes by.

    Grerat place to try different foods, lots of tapas. Restaurant on the top floor gets crowded pretty fast. Bottom floor has a great selection of hams and cheeses, and mistura ice cream which was great.

    The Italian place was great, and the fish place on the 2nd floor too. Lots of people, plenty of places to sit and chat!

    I visited this exhibition space and I saw two temporary exhibitions. One for the artistic relationship between Gonzalez /Picasso and one for the work of photographer Bing. both of them were well curated and informative particularly the exhibition of Picasso/Gonzalez where you get to know the similarities and influences between the two friends. The entrance was free. I haven't visited any permanent exhibition in this place

    A good little museum covering the history of the capital. New signage in English makes it a valuable short stop for visitors. Terrific maps and paintings of Madrid through the ages

    Visited as a group of friends in our late teens. Be aware that reservation is now necessary but it is completely free.

    Very easy access from Sol Metro station and easy to locate. Inside the building is modern with funky architecture.

    The exhibitions area amazing (the telecommunications one is a little dull in comparison) but the colours and paisajes del luz ones were great.

    I’d definitely recommend if you have a free hour in Madrid.

    This museum is part of the memories of all of us grown up in Madrid. Very good amount of different rooms and figures. The resemblance to the original characters is quite fair though we would all find differences according to our own experiences and expectations.
    The price is just ok, not cheap but far from expensive.
    It is inevitable to compare Museo de Cera de Madrid with any of the Madame Tussauds, at that point Museo de Cera falls behind.
    The main reason to fall behind is that Museo de Cera rooms are dark and everything on it looks old and outdated.
    The different rooms are in a great need of a better light design.
    Terror rooms and crime rooms look really scary. Some of the automatism really need to be revisited.
    Because the location of the museum the visitor need to walk from area to area crossing the "patio".
    It is all about expectations. I would not recommend it for kids below 10-12 years old to avoid little kids get boring with so many history characters.

    This is a beautiful church built by Barbara de Berganza. The main door is surrounded by pleasant gardens. The main medallion of the facade shows the Visitation of Mary, the 10 commandments, and a group of angels. The interior is decorated with marble columns.

    Exciting experience. A lot of adrenaline and a lot of fun. It can be in English or Spanish.

    Ha sido una experiencia muy chula. La adrenalina estaba a flor de piel, muy divertido.

    Iglesia de San Anton must be unique. It must be the only place on earth which does what it preaches. It is not huge or fancy. However the things the people in this church do are just amazing. They actually go out of their way to help those who are unfortunate and homeless. They provide a roof over their head and food to eat. The church building is a refuge for all those who need it. There are even television screens for people to watch, like the football world Cup! The church keeps the bones of Saint Valentine, the third-century Italian bishop considered the father of romance and love. This church deserves a visit and much more from those who can afford it.

    The spectacular building, one of the few examples of modernism to be found in Madrid. A building with a unique history. It is an Art Nouveau palace that the politician and financier Francisco Javier Gonzalez Longoria ordered to be built in the district of Chueca. Longoria contracted the Catalan architect Jose Grases Riera to design and build it in 1902. It is a building which, despite renovation, still retains its unique magic and attractiveness. A pearl of architecture. It is a building that should be viewed, even if it is possible only from the outside.

    Nice casino, small, clean. They advertise a fee to get in but we were not charged. Tables were very crowded when we were there. We played blackjack, European rules are skewed more in the casinos favor, so probably would not go back again, but it was a good one time experience...

    This church once belonged to the former convent of San Hermenegildo, established in 1586 by Friar Nicolás de Jesús y María, which was known as the Carmen Descalzo Convent since it was home to members of said religious order.

    The original building, whose church was built in 1605, was demolished in the early 18th century, and in 1730 Pedro de Ribera commissioned the construction of the contemporary building, which was completed in 1748 by José de Arredondo and Fausto Manso. The construction has a typical church layout designed following Madrid Baroque aesthetics: a Latin cross plan with a central nave and two lateral ones.
    As it is situated in the central part of Madrid, it is always full of visitors, mainly tourists.

    I would definitely take time to walk down here as people have done for pleasure in the last 200 years or more. Take in the buildings, monuments and floral displays.
