Las Cortes and Embajadores: Perfect day

These two adjacent areas in central Madrid loosely incorporate the capital’s golden triangle of art, including the Museo Thyssen Bornemisza, the Museo del Prado and the Museo Reina Sofia. This area of surprising contrasts includes the grandiose neighbourhood of Las Cortes, with its elegant 18th-century boulevards, and also the bohemian neighbourhood of Lavapies, once home of the student Picasso. Whether you’re an art aficionado or simply seeking a special souvenir, this is a great district to find inspiration
