Hey, if you want information about the art exhibitions and classical concerts at the Casa de America - an extraordinary place that looks like Herman Munster's house in the Paseo de Recoletos (just a cricket ball's lob from Recoletos station) - look somewhere else. I'm...More

My wife and I saw the two exhibitions, one about Garcilaso de la Vega, and the other about Saint Teresa. Both exhibitions were very good and interesting. We enjoyed the exhibitions very much and learned a lot.

A small little garden you can walk around with a museum on the USA Mexican wars and a cafe at the end. Lovely to sit and take in the atmosphere.

Whilst in the area taking in the Palacio de Cibeles we stumbled across the Casa de America and we were so glad we did. Plenty of unique visuals to take in with an experience that I will not forget!

Great museum about the Spanish discovery of the Americas in a beautiful area of Madrid. Its not huge and you can easily get there by metro or have a bit of long walk from the city centre. Well worth a visit.

quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large
shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle
