The Spring in Spain Is Ready For You

By Chris Boyle

Panel-entrada-logo-webThinking about what to do next weekend?  While most of the Northeast U.S. and Midwest is still feeling the effects of a long winter, the 10-day weather forecast for Madrid is sunny with temperatures into the 70s.

If you go, you can be first among your friends to see the effects of over $90 million and six years of painstaking effort as MAN, The National Archaeological Museum, reopened in Madrid today with official fanfare.

According to officials, exhibit space has increased from about 80,000 square feet to over 110,000 square feet and features over 13,000 archaeological, historical and artistic objects that raise awareness of the historical and cultural narrative of Spain, from prehistory to the nineteenth century.

Collections of Greek, Near East and Egyptian art provide a panorama of ancient Mediterranean cultures and their influence on Spain.

The museum building was restored from “the ground to the roof” providing more logical flow, high tech elements and a number of spaces which are perfect for your elite events and parties.  An interesting video about the restoration can be seen at

The National Archaeological Museum extends the stretch of Paseo del Prado, considered the golden mile of Madrid’s museums.

And afterwards, if you decide you are ready for a bit of fine dining, El Celler de Can Roca is less than about 40 minute by air flying into Girona-Costa Brava Airport while Azurmendi in Bilboa runs about 25 minutes.  The two restaurants ranked Sixth and Seventh in the World, according to 2014 Elite Traveler’s 100 Restaurants list, also released today.
