Full description
In the 1990s, a former hospital was renovated and turned into the Reina Sofia, home to 20th century art mostly from Spanish artists. Your expert guide will discuss the various artistic movements on display here, including abstractionism, cubism, surrealism and modernism. Learn all about Spain’s most famous artistic export, Pablo Picasso, while standing in front of his world-changing painting, “Guernica.” You’ll see works by Joan Miró, like “The Man with a Pipe,” as well as Salvador Dali’s “Face of the Great Masturbator,” learning about the techniques and stories behind these sometimes offbeat works of art. Your guide will situate all of these works in their larger social and political contexts, allowing you to understand how events like the Spanish Civil War shaped these artists lives and works. By the end, you’ll have experienced one of Spain’s and the world’s, most exquisite collections of contemporary art, which no trip to Madrid should go without.

We had such a great time with Martha walking through the museum. She did such a great job pacing our visit and we had so much fun discussing the art, the history of the art pieces and their artists. Hands down best tour we did in Madrid.
