Salamanca Attractions in Madrid

Filled with designer shops, upscale boutiques, and expensive restaurants, the Salamanca neighborhood is definitely Madrid's posher side. Come here to dress smart and shop or rub elbows with Madrid's old money set. Otherwise, you can take advantage of the cultural sites and other things to do in Salamanca. We've put together a list of our top 10 picks. Our top pick is the National Archeological Museum (Museo Arqueológico Nacional), a fascinating repository of mummies, jeweled crowns, mosaics, and all manner of artifacts from prehistory to the 1800s. There is a special emphasis on the ancient civilizations from Egypt, Greece, and Rome as well as Spain throughout the ages. Our second pick is the Fernán Gómez Theater (Teatro Fernán Gómez), which can be found underneath the Plaza de Colón. This hidden gem stages important plays, concerts, dance shows, exhibits, and children's shows. Museo Sorolla, our third pick, is a lovely mansion turned museum. This was the residence and studio of Spanish painter Joaquín Sorolla, known to many as Spain's Impressionist painter. There you can view his paintings and sketches, where he lived and worked, and the house's gardens. Our fourth pick, the National Library (Biblioteca Nacional), is a beautiful 19th century building with columns, archways, and statues of Spain's most famous writers. Inside you'll find Spain's national collection of books and archives, the Book Museum, and different temporary exhibits.
