The Major Square.
The Major Square of the 15th century is one of the most famous squares in Madrid. Since the 15th century it's located inside the walls of the capital. It's a very cozy place with a lot of cafes and restaurants, which are located around. In summer the square becomes the concert place for many street actors and musicians. The Major square is especially popular with tourists, but not with all the natives.
The Museum of Thyssen-Bornemisza.
The Museum of Thyssen-Bornemisza is one of the best museums in Madrid. It's based on the private collection of Baron Hans Henry Thyssen-Bornemisza. Time passes and a great part of the collection went to the Spanish government. The exposition contains the works of the 13th – 20th centuries, among which there are paintings by Goya, Rembrandt, Pieter Mondriaan and Picasso. Together with the Prado Museum and the Reina Sofia the Museum of Thyssen-Bornemisza creates so-called 'Golden Triangle'.
