Where you'll be

We’ll be in the beautiful Salesas neighborhood, a centric area of Madrid, trendy, chic and bohemian, renowned for its contemporary art galleries. There is plenty to see, all of them are high standard and we will visit more or less depending on how you feel. My studio is in the close and typical Chamberí quarter and I´ll love to show you my work and have a relaxed chat while having a drink and a snack.

The tour with Maria was absolutely amazing! Maria is a very lovely person, very knowledgeable and a great storyteller. She showed us beautiful hidden galleries that we otherwise would not have found so easily. Also she gave us very interesting insights. Seeing her own studio was really nice too and we very much enjoyed the conversation we've had together. If you're in Madrid and interested in art, get in touch with Maria!

Maria is a great host! She gave us a good glimpse of the artwork scene in Madrid. Additionally, we finished the tour in her own atelier seeing her paintings and sharing tapas and drinks! Totally worth including it in your visit to Madrid!

It was an amazing tour. We visited many galleries, each with a distinctive character. Maria was very friendly, informative and fun, and it was great to see her own art too, so colourful and joyful.

It was just the best tour you could have in Madrid! María is sooo nice and genuine and every gallery was so special - also because of Marías storytelling! At the end we went to Marías Gallery and had some wine and snacks there - such a nice ending for a tour like this. We highly recommend that tour! It was magic.
