If you do go to Madrid, visit the Prado museum! It is a great collection, especially their large El Greco room. I didn't give it enough time because I had to make it over to the bullfight in time across town, but the time I did spend there was great. It is free on Sunday, but get there EARLY to line up to get your free ticket! Also the Reina Sofia museum was nice which I saw the next afternoon. It has Picasso's Guernica, along with some interesting studies that he had done for the piece, so those were nice to see. Other than that, it's mostly modern art that I don't find very interesting...
Here are some other pictures from Madrid taken in Retiro Park, which was really nice. Nothing like that where I live, that's for sure! I could have spent the whole afternoon there, just lazying away the day...
And inside the Atocha train station headed to Barcelona, I got to wait in a nice botanical garden in the center of the station!
