Best Museums in Spain

If you are an art lover, Spain will definitely steal your heart. In Spain you will find the largest collection of art in the whole of Europe, and of course it has some famous artists of its own such as Picasso and Dali. Most museums in Spain are related to art and history and often not only what is inside is impressive, the building in itself is already a work of art. Even though the biggest museums are in Madrid and Barcelona, both the museum for Picasso and Dali are found in the towns they were born. The Picasso museum is in Malaga and the Dali museum in Figueres.
