Viewing Modern Art Masterpieces in Madrid for FREE

I’m not one to catalog every tourist attraction, I usually prefer to chronicle off-the-beaten path experiences that every tourist in the world hasn’t done, thus I haven’t posted much from Italy or Spain.  However after a visit to the Reina Sofia in Madrid I feel the need to explain just why I loved this museum so much.

Visiting Europe is incredible but after a few museums and churches, I reach my limit. To truly experience a city I prefer to wander aimlessly and of course people watch, preferably with cocktail in hand. After visiting the amazing Prado Museum in Madrid, I was feeling museum overload. That is until I realized that Reina had an incredible  collection of modern art from Miro, Picasso, and Dali. Did I mention you can view this collection for free on Sundays after 1:30? Here are photos (not all mine as many rooms didn’t allow photos) of some of my favorites.
