What to expect

Get ready to feast your eyes on masterpieces by some of Spain’s most cherished modern and contemporary artists at the Reina Sofia Museum. This guided tour is a great way to discover its treasured walls. Marta, one of our local expert guides says, ‘The Reina Sofia is part of Madrid’s Golden Triangle of Art and is the place to see 20th-century and contemporary art. Roam the corridors of this former hospital to capture the essence of paintings, listening to stories and hidden details.’

Get up close to the abstract shapes and faces of Pablo Picasso, step into the surreal eccentric art of Dalí and admire the vibrant playfulness of Joan Miró. These are just some of the names you’ll get to see among the museum’s 20,000 collection of 20th-century art. Other names that will leave you inspired include Juan Gris – master of Cubism with his unmissable piece The Musician’s Table – Lucio Fontana, Ives Klein, Max Ernst, Robert Delaunay, Yves Tanguy, Georges Braque and many more. You’ll be spoilt for choice.

The Reina Sofia Museum’s world-class art regularly leaves art aficionados speechless. An example of this is the Guernica, Picasso's 1937 masterpiece. Marta, our guide, says, ‘In response to the bombing of Guernica, a town in northern Spain, this huge 3.5-meter artwork is one of the most powerful anti-war paintings in history. Powerful imagery and emotion make up for the piece’s lack of colour – delve deep beyond the strokes of the weeping woman, soldier, horse and bull.’
