Concierge.com's insider take:
The collection of old masters and major 19th- and 20th-century works amassed by the late Baron Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza has graced Madrid since 1992. In summer 2004, a five-story, 250,000-square-foot addition by the Barcelona architects BOPBAA opened, making room for some 200 more pieces from the collection of the Baron's widow, Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza. These include canvases by Hopper, O'Keeffe, Kirchner, Kandinsky, Picasso, Fragonard, and Corot. There are now two happening restaurantsParadis, in the new wing, and rooftop restaurant El Miradorplus an amazing design store.
