Ham so fatty that it will melt in your mouth as you cry with happiness. Cheap, delicious wine from Catalonia. Bars stocked with tapas of steak, foie gras, olives, and pretty much everything else we love. There are lots of reasons to love Madrid. It turns out that its contemporary art scene is another. Above is our three-part guide to it. It's partial and incomplete, but hopefully it'll provide a few ideas for you if you're planning a visit. One more pleasing feature: the gallery hours. Most spaces are open Tuesday to Saturday from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm, then close for a lengthy lunch for everyone involved, before reopening from 5:00 pm to 8:30 pm.
