Combination of a monestery and art in Madrid May 23, 2008
One of the highlights in Madrid was this monastery. Maybe it isn't one of the 'top 10 spots' in the city but this place is definately worth a visit. The only way to visit it, is guided so you have to go there and make a reservation for the English or Spanish tour. The Monestery is full of frescos, relics, sculptures and paintings. The art pieces aren't as well known as those in the Museo del Prado but they are very nice, especially the frescos. It's hard to describe all the rooms. Imagine a 'normal' monestery but then 10 times more beautiful. Go here when you're in Madrid and i promiss you won't regret it!

Aunque tengas poco tiempo, vale la pena recorrer una parte de la

historia de España que se vive en este Monasterio. Estan expuestas

muchas obras de arte, tanto pintura como esculturas, muebles y

joyas, pero destacan los tapices tejidos en Bruselas, sobre cartones de

Rubens, representando la Apoteosis de la Eucaristica, encargados para

este Monasterio por la hija de Felipe II, la Infanta Isabel Clara

Eugenia, Gobernadora de los Paises Bajos.

Para llegar es muy facil, justo por la parte de atras del Corte Inglés de Preciados, y caminar un par de manzanas.
