Reina Sofía National Art Centre


This is one of the most important contemporary art museums in the world, and contains works by Spanish and international artists. Known as a venue for the avant-garde, it is part of the popular 'Paseo del Arte' art walk in Madrid. The museum is housed in a building that was formerly a hospital, but due to the growth of its collection a subsequent extension was commissioned from Jean Nouvel, and it is now one of the largest in Europe in terms of its area. What will you see? All the most innovative artistic trends from the late 19th century through to the present day. It has a collection of around 20,000 works and is divided into three permanent exhibitions entitled: 'The irruption of the 20th century: utopias and conflicts' with works by Dalí, Miró and Picasso; 'Is the war over? Art in a divided world' with Antoni Tàpies and Jorge Oteiza, and 'From revolt to post-modernity' with Luis Gordillo among others. The museum has become a space for research, experimentation and reflection, and offers a wide-ranging programme of temporary exhibitions and activities. Don't miss The famous painting by Pablo Picasso you've heard so much about: the Guernica, a vast canvas representing a discourse against war. This fame and recognition of this universal work has transcended frontiers.
