  • We arrived almost by accident at this Museum of Madrid. Very well put, free. A Museum for the whole family. Called "well of San Isidro", you can see the Saint lived there with his family. The history of what we know today as Madrid, since prehistoric times. The staff is very friendly but some of these ladies should talk softly because they annoy visitors. The area is beautiful, walking is the Church of San Andrés, which is also worth a visit as well as the chapel of the Bishop.
