Located right next to the parking lot of Atocha’s train station, we found La Neomudejar, which is an avant-garde center in Atocha which houses different kinds of art: Brut art, Visual art and Street art. If you are looking for a museum which exhibits the opposite of El Prado museum, then this is your place!
Also the city center hides a special spot in Calle Doctor Fourquet. It will completely surprise you! The following garden was occupied in 2002 by local neighbors who were fed up with a controversial situation. In its interior, there are some great artworks to see Street art in Madrid, some of the artists are Zeta1970, Roa (famous Belgian artist) and Blu (Italian artist).
Furthermore, Parque de Las Siete Tetas probably offers one of the best sunsets in town. This is a 7 hills area where you would get a panoramic photograph from all the city center, including but not limiting to Royal Palace, Almudena Cathedral and a former telecommunications tower called El Pirulí.
