The Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, or Queen Sofía Museum, is Spain’s national museum of 20th-century art. Formerly an 18th century hospital, but was renovated into a modern museum situated near the Atocha station in Madrid. It was officially inaugurated on September 10, 1992,
The museum is mainly dedicated to Spanish art. Highlights of the museum include excellent collections of Spain’s two greatest 20th century masters, Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dalí. Even if Dali´ is my personal favourite, the most famous masterpiece in the museum is Picasso’s painting Guernica.
