Saturday in Madrid

This morning we visited the Real Basilica San Francisco el Grande to see the beautiful restoraation of the fresco´s and the paintings by Spanish artists in the museum there.  The restoration took twenty-seven years to complete but now the work can be seen in all its splendor.

There are mirrors placed on the walls around the room so that the priests, royals, or high ranking visitors did not have to crane their necks.

Afterwards we went to the galleria to place locks on the display cases and then it was time for lunch.  After lunch comes siesta, and I needed a siesta today.  Now at nearly 2000h or 08:00PM we are going to the movies and for tapas.
