Make sure you don't take any type of pictures (it is strictly forbidden) and experience the magic of great masters. Works of Goya and Velazquez are mandatory.

Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and
culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On

after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue
of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de
