Juan Gris Room in the Reina Sofía National Museum Art Centre

If you like arts and culture, Spain is the perfect destination for you. We have more than 1,500 museums (art, archaeology, science, sea...). Come and enjoy special moments gazing at masterpieces by world-renowned artists such as El Greco, Velázquez, Goya, Titian and Rembrandt at the Prado Museum (Madrid). Discover one of the best private art collections in the world at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum (Madrid), avant-garde art at the Reina Sofía National Art Museum or at the Guggenheim Museum (Bilbao), and the works of important artists, for example, at the Picasso Museums in Barcelona or Malaga... But Spain is not only about museums. You can visit beautiful buildings such as the Alhambra in Granada or the Basilica of La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. Discover Moorish art at the mosque in Cordoba, be amazed by our cathedrals (like those in Santiago de Compostela or Burgos) and take a look at our events calendar to see what cultural activities are on. Spain has a lot to say about arts and culture, any time of the year.
