Madrid offers some of the world’s greatest museums and art collections, from Velasquez and Goya in the Prado to Picasso and other 20th century greats in the Reina Sofia. It has been the cultural centre of Spain since it became the capital in 1561 and there are a wealth of smaller museums and private collections to explore. Madrid is a perfect city for walking and our itineraries mix art, architecture, music and bustling ‘taberna’ life. We arrange day trips to the Escorial and other towns and landscapes in the province of Madrid.
