Het Velázquez -paleis is een groot gebouw in Madrid, Spanje. Het werd gebouwd in de 17e eeuw voor de Spaanse premier, de graafduke van Olivares. Het paleis is vernoemd naar de Spaanse schilder, Diego Velázquez, die een goede vriend van de graafduke was.
De buitenkant van het paleis is gemaakt van witte steen en is versierd met veel sierlijke sculpturen. Het interieur is net zo weelderig, met prachtige schilderijen en wandtapijten die de muren sieren. Er zijn ook veel indrukwekkende sculpturen en meubels.
Het Velázquez -paleis is open voor het publiek en is zeker een bezoek waard als je geïnteresseerd bent in de Spaanse geschiedenis of kunst.

🗣️ Velázquez Palace: Meningen
Beautiful full of History and amazing art.
Lovely place to spend some time. You can enjoy a walk in the park, explore the exhibition that changes from time to time or spend lazy time in the sun. There are several places to buy snacks or drinks. Very good place to spend time with the kids
Palacio de Velázquez is a wonderful, airy and truly beautiful space to exhibit art in the middle of the Retiro Park. Whether you like the art on display or not depends on the time that you visit. If you're lucky, your visit will coincide with the exhibit of an artist that you will appreciate. But even if the exhibited art is not your cup of tea, go in and see the space. It's free.
Very interesting temporary exhibition at the moment.
They always have interesting art for free.
Highly recommended if you like modern art.
It was free to get inand see the exhibition, so you can not complain
A smaller, but interesting museum to visit for free while in El Retiro Park.
Always excellent exhibitions
Sadly, I couldn't visit any exhibition but the architecture is gorgeous.
The current exhibition is awesome!
I visited the Palacio de Velázquez during an exhibition of paintings and sculptures by Tetsuya Ishida. Much of the work seems to focus around the de-humanising automation of modern work (because breaking you back working in a field was better?). I loved the way the works invoked a feeling despair by workers struggling to adapt to social and technological changes in contemporary life and working demands. A fantastic exhibition. The building itself is also worth seeing for it's mix of Neo-Classical and Neo-Mudejar, with it's lovely polychromic brickwork and especially two winged lions at the entrance.
Originally known as the Palacio de la Minería, it was built in 1881-3 for the Exposición Nacional de Minería by architect Ricardo Velázquez Bosco (and named after him), engineer Alberto Palacio, and ceramist Daniel Zuloaga.(Wiki..). Its a hub of art and culture.
Big palace with some important exhibitions
A must go free museum in Madrid
Superb exhibition of paintings by Japanese artist Tetsuya Ishida. Very personal work of expressionless people entrapped by various aspects of modern life. Images of solitude, his subjects are dehumanised and become part of the technological landscape.
Free exhibitions in a beautiful building in the middle of a beautiful park.
Huge space for exhibitions in the centre of park Retiro.
Right now they have a beautiful exposition of a Japanese Artist and I was amazing
One of the highlights of Retiro. Always nice to stroll through and see what's showing inside.
Great exhibition. Very well explained by a young lady which made it even more interesting.
The exhibition of Tetsuya Ishida was beautiful. You should go see it. Powerful!
Free entrance, great exibit
A Place to take a stroll and enjoy a free exhibition of art
The Palacio de Velázquez is a lovely building and event space in the centre of El Retiro.
Beautiful building, free to enter in a breath taking park. Hosts temporary free exhibitions from the Reina Sofia collection.
I went to see paintings by the Japanese modern artist Tetsuya Ishida. It wasn't crowded so much for Sunday afternoon and it was a great exhibition. A rare opportunity to see his works in Europe.
This is an extension of the Reina Sofia museum in the giant Retiro park, offering rotating contemporary art exhibitions. Unlike the main museum building, admission is free.
If you have a long layover in Madrid, I would recommend this museum. We all enjoyed it.
The 2 pavilions in Retiro Park: the Palacio de Velázquez and the close Palacio de Cristal are the temporary exhibition spaces of Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía. So if someone is not amazed by the beautiful architecture of these pavilions, and their fantastic setting in the park (especially for the cristal palace) - the well curated exhibitions might do the job. It is a great experience to transfer between the natural environment of the park and realm of the arts, forth and back. The entry is free into both pavilions, and after the exhibitions coffee or ice-cream is close by in the neighbouring café.
There was a tsutaya ishida exhibition while I was there. Amazing..
Beautifully lit space for showcasing art at its finest. A great way to unwind.
Very nice exhibits and a great place to get put of the sun. Free entry and a calm atmosphere
Loved the artistic vibes .
Queen Sofia's art gallery offer free admission exhibitions around the year.
Great architecture masterpiece. The exterior it's especially interesting. The effect of those "azulejos", small pieces of ceramic forming big mosaics is striking and look special (for me personal).
More of a gallery than a museum. The building itself is very beautiful, though I can't tell about exhibitions - they change
The most amazing exhibition space for contemporary art.
Fantastic artwork from Beatrice Gonzales. Wonderful collection. Information about each painting in Spanish with a few with English translation so may need a translator to assist!
A place you should not miss! Cool contemporary exhibits in a beautiful setting!
Great free collections that rotate frequently. Right in the heart of the beautiful Retiro Park, the jewel of Madrid.
Great exhibit when we visited....lovely builying..
