Escape of the Week: Reina Sofia

Written by on May 2, 2012 in Destinations - 2 Comments

Located in the heart of Madrid is one of those places you’d be remiss to skip — the palatial Reina Sofia Musuem (Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia).

The museum came highly recommend from my art-inclined friends back home.

“You can’t miss it,” one said.

“It is so breathtaking,” said another.

And they were right.

So, first thing on a Saturday morning, I lined up to experience this attraction for myself.

I was not disappointed.

Named after the Queen Sofia of Spain, the museum features mostly Spanish art, including works from Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali.

Like the city itself, I quickly fell in love with the work on display.

The journey for me began with a walk through the immense courtyard.

Then, I wandered through the many rooms featuring different artists and exhibits.

One of my favorite exhibits ...

Getting there: Located near the Prado, take the metro to Atocha.
