The Palacio de Velazquez showcases the trending exhibitions by Centro de Arte Reina Sofía and is one of the best places to visit if you are looking for art spaces that ooze charm. The palace was built in 1881 by architect Ricardo Velázquez Bosco with the help of ceramist Daniel Zuloaga. The neo-classic building is popular for its red-brick construction with impeccable tile-work embellishments.
The tile work and design of the palace are one of its most unique features and the trending exhibitions are just as inspiring.

Palacio De Velazquez, Madrid Reviews - Write a Review
At the time we went, the exhibition on display was of the works of Franz Erhard Walther. While the exhibition wasn't necessarily for my tastes, the building itself is great to showcase works of art such as the one on display. The building is located inside the park. It has air conditioning which is an amazing break from the blazing heat. The staff there were all nice and for those who need it, there is a bathroom there too. The most amazing part of our trip to this location though was the local artist posted just outside the entrance of the building. His name is Yonathan and he has many local pieces of art for sale should you be interested. My wife and I bought a few of his pieces during our trip and would highly recommend them to others. However, the highlight of Yonathan was not just his artwork but he is one of the most friendliest, nice individuals to talk to. He has many great tips for visitors and has a great story to tell should you be interested. Definitely recommend talking a moment to speak with him!
Great free collections that rotate frequently. Right in the heart of the beautiful Retiro Park, the jewel of Madrid.
Queen Sofia's art gallery offer free admission exhibitions around the year.
This was a wonderful space which is well maintained. The exhibitions on display were modern and visually appeasing, however, there was no further information offered on the pieces offered. The only staff in the building were the security, and when my mother and I asked for futher information he replied "solo el seguridad, no se de estas cosas y la realidad es que ni me interesan" translation: I am just the security, i don't know about these and the reality is that they are of no interest to me.... We were a bit shocked at this reply. Shortly after he recommended that we visit another museum in the park, Casa de Vacas, where there was a colourful acrylic exhibition which he expressed that he was fond of.
worth visiting. very interesting.
