Madrid Art & Design School Trips & Tours
Soak up the Spanish culture and explore the many museums, monuments and parks during an NST art school trip to this colourful city.
The Museo del Prado alone justifies a study tour to Madrid, but this city of Velázquez and Goya has been complemented over the years by the installation of the amazing Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the Reina Sofia Museum. Home to the ‘Golden Triangle of Museums’, Madrid offers gallery after gallery of masterworks.
Located at the very heart of mainland Spain, Madrid is a large and lively city. A school trip to this exciting and cosmopolitan destination, offers excellent educational visits, and the chance to sketch the many fountains, cathedrals, dazzling Bourbon architecture and boulevards.
