The Prado Museum will start the year as it finishes 2013: showing the paintings by Diego de Velazquez about the family of King Philip IV, which will be on stage until mid February. Meanwhile, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum will organize a retrospective of Cézanne from February to May and an exhibition about Pop Art in summer.
  • – The season of bullfighting begins in March, but the peak will take place on May: in that moment, San Isidro Fair will gather the best bullfighters and the best cattles of the world. This season will finish as usual in October 12 with a special ‘corrida’ commemorating the Columbus Day.

But the greatest event of the year will hold in Arganda del Rey, in Madrid surroundings: Rock in Río comes back in 2014 with the best artists of the moment.
