Fundación Juan March is one of those cultural centres that marked a before and after for me – I visit regularly since I found it. It’s been around in Madrid since 1955, when it was set up by a philanthropic financier Juan March Ordinas with the aim to promote Spanish culture.

It offers interesting and well-curated exhibitions that cover a range of diverse topics and also has free lunchtime and early evening concerts every week, usually classical or jazz, as well as free lectures and film showings. The exhibitions are rarely crowded, you just stroll in – no tickets. It is not a huge space, but the shows are always well curated and often educational.

If you want to see a concert or attend a talk, you must enter the online draw in the morning about a week before each event. If you aren’t lucky, you can go and queue on the day – the ticket office opens an hour before each event. A small shop features very well-priced quality postcards and posters (50 centimos and 5 euros respectively).

There’s a super chic cafe/restaurant downstairs with sexy black leather booths, and a self-service library in the gorgeous garden too! It’s near La Cazorla Castelló too!
