We walked past this place a bunch of times during our last visit to Madrid, but our timing was bad, and they were closed every time. This trip, we made a point of getting here when it was open. The good thing is that it's...More

This museum is often over-looked because of the many other big named museums in Madrid that tourists flock to see. I had never visited it during my many trips to Madrid, and was very surprised to see the lovely building, filled with renowned painters beautiful...More

Not so well known as the Prado, so you won't find hordes of chavs ticking off their bucket list here without any appreciation of what's within. Just tranquil galleries, polite staff and a few people enjoying the art. Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San...More

Some fine works of art. Just like any other art gallery. Not a large display. You buy your tickets from the machine. There is a man there to help but will not take your money.

My wife and I have seen this museum many times and we decided to see it again this December. There are many paintings that I enjoyed, specially the ones by Vicente Lopez and Zurbaran.

Museo de la Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando is a less visited art gallery and museum but it contains a lot of interesting art from the great Spanish painters, which can be enjoyed more easily without the crowds in the Prado.

Can I admit I enjoyed it more than the Prado? An opportunity to learn about Goya and others in a more intimate setting. The museum staff were personable and helpful. I strongly recommend.

restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and

it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
