Penélope Cruz’s Madrid Recommendations

The Oscar winner shares a selection of her favorite spots around Madrid

Penélope Cruz was born in Madrid and continues to call it home today. Here, Cruz shares a selection of her favorite spots around the Spanish capital – restaurants, museums and a park where you might spend your free time as she does.


“My favorite park would be El Retiro, the biggest one in the city, but there are a lot of little parks that are very beautiful, too.”

Inside Sobrino de Botin restaurant, Madrid.


“My favorites are Botín, one of the oldest restaurants in Spain, and Restaurante Asia Gallery, a Chinese restaurant in the Westin Palace Hotel.”


“The Museo Reina Sofía is very interesting, but the Museo del Prado is my favorite. Even if you stay there for hours, you won’t see everything: the Goyas, the Picassos and The Garden of Earthly Delights by Bosch. That painting is so revolutionary and so modern. Incredible. Genius.”
