What I will remember most about our visit to Madrid will be the art. Whilst our stay in Spain’s capital was only short (at just over three days) the first two days were pretty much all about the art and after only visiting two of the museums – the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia and the Museo Prado – we felt a little overwhelmed by the amount of art we had seen. So overwhelmed we couldn’t bring ourselves to go inside Herzog & de Mueron’s gravity defying Caixa Forum and the Museo Thyssen Bonemisza. Although to be fair we did take a walk around the outside of the aforementioned Caixa Forum.
It’s been almost a month since I returned from a three week sojourn to Spain. A sojourn that took in lots of food, football, culture and of course architecture. I must admit as I have got back into the daily grind of work that I should post up some of the photos (not very good ones I might add) of some of the cities, sights and buildings that grabbed my attention. Rather than bombard you with a thousand photos in one post I am going to divide it up into a series of topical post with first cab off the rank being the first city we visited, Barcelona.
