Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza 4.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #7 of 27

Castle, Fortification, Palace - #8 of 27

Chueca 4.0 stars
Quarter - #13 of 27
Chueca in Madrid is the gay area and home to the coolest bars and restaurants around. The main street is packed with bars; the most difficult thing is to choose where to go. It makes for a very good bar crawl, but don’t go there if you are ... [more ]
