About this place
Se pretendía dotar al Madrid liberal, en su mismo corazón, de un espacio público representativo. Se hizo realidad en 1862, convirtiéndola en un ámbito urbano de monumental centralidad, con carácter representativo y en polo de atracción para actividades comerciales, administrativas y financieras.

“With over 1,600 paintings, it was once the second largest private collection in the world after the British Royal Collection. A competition was held to house the core of the collection in 1987–88 after Baron Thyssen, having tried to enlarge his Museum in Lugano(Villa Favorita), searched for a location in Europe. The Thyssen-Bornemisza fills the historical gaps in its counterparts' collections: in the Prado's case this includes Italian primitives and works from the English, Dutch and German schools, while in the case of the Reina Sofia it concerns Impressionists, Expressionists, and European and American paintings from the 20th century. ”
