The museum houses paintings and sculptures dating from 1939 to the present day. You will find one of Picasso's most famous paintings, "Guernica".
Gastronomy in Madrid
For gourmets, My-Webspot advises you to visit the "Museo del Jamón". It is a restoration chain, which is considered an institution in Spain and is part of the country's heritage. You can buy cheese or ham sandwiches there for 1 or 2 €, add a beer, and it will cost you about 5 €. For a more substantial lunch, you can go to Melo (44, calle Ave Maria, 28012 Madrid). Melo offers you the best "croquetas" in the Spanish capital. You can also find very impressive "zapatillas" (massive sandwiches, usually with cheese and ham), which are large enough to satisfy 5 people. For sweet lovers, go to the "Pasadizo San Gines", the specialty, "con churos de chocolat" is the traditional breakfast. You can also have a very traditional cup of hot chocolate with churos.
