So much of Spanish history is tied to it's Naval prowess. This museum just blocks away from the Prado and Thyssen should not be missed. Beautiful rooms filled with important artifacts, fascinating ships models, as much world history as Spanish history. The small suggested donation...More

One of the best museums in Madrid, in my opinion. The most interesting part of the exhibition represents the models of the ships starting with the earliest and simplest ones and finishing with the huge marvelous constructions. It`s so interesting to explore every separate detail...More
The models and artifacts tell that Spain was once the strongest naval power in the world. The museum is free but please donate 3 Euro to keep it going. It is still a training school for the Spanish Navy.

Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses
here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
