Prado and Reina Sofia each offer free entry at select times (see their pages for the most up-to-date info). The Thyssen now has free admission on Mondays, from 12:00 to 4pm. Not sure if that's permanent.

there is only one Cathedral in Madrid (as in any city) and it is free entry -- it is also unusually uninteresting for a Cathedral in a major city

The main floor of the Cathedral is uninteresting because it's a 20th century construction in a previous century's style, BUT the dome, which may have a fee, is interesting for its view, and the lower level is (basement) for its its being an older construction. Someone will surely follow with more details.

Not far from the extraordinarily dull Cathedral of Madrid is the Basilica San Francisco El Grande -- small charge, but well worth it to see the lovely interior:

The Cathedral of Madrid was built on top of another church. The Neo-Romanesque crypt houses a 16th-century image of the Virgen de la Almudena and there are mausoleums of the most important Spanish families. On the right side of the façade is an entrance to the museum that brings one to the roof of the church, where one can have great views of the surrounding areas.

Thanks for all the info

Thanks to you all my Holiday File is already building up nicely ..

Another Question is this ... Why many Hotels give their rates as for Room Only ...

Does this means that one can find loads of Restaurants around (Gran Via) offering nice and not too expensive Breakfast /and Menu of the Day lunches/Dinners Please .

Regards

Anthony

'Room only' usually means they don't include breakfast in the rate. However, there are many bars and restaurants that offer a simple breakfast for 2-4 euro. These seem to be everywhere in the city center. On my street alone, there were six within a block. And there are indeed lots of restaurants offering inexpensive "menus of the day" for lunch, some for as little as 8 euro. If you want to budget even more, head to the Corte Ingles supermarket and buy some of their already-made sandwiches. (These are located near the registers.) I was running on a tight budget during my recent visit and that was one way I was able to get by. Usually, I had a menu del dia in the day, then a sandwich or two at night. Not very exciting, but had no choice as I had spent most of my money on the flight, accommodations, and other travel expenses. You'll get better, more specific answers no doubt.
