Art Treasures of Madrid 
Wednesday 26 April

Madrid is a unique city by any standards, characterised by its ‘barrio’ (neighbourhood) character, and all the old cliches (passionate, chaotic, capricious), given full reign in the aftermath of Franco and the cultural isolation he imposed. ‘Madrilenos’ (inhabitants of Madrid) reckon that after Madrid there is only one place to go – Heaven – and its certainly true that for lovers of art of all nations, Heaven is that one step closer in Madrid, with its magnificent collections. This tour introduces Spanish art, and the great international collections held by some of the world’s richest museums – it is suitable for anyone with a love of art and the desire to know more.
