Top sights in Madrid
A visit to Madrid isn’t complete without a dose of Spanish culture. With over 7,000 paintings at the Museo del Prado, you’ll see some of the best artworks from Spain and across Europe. From Goya to El Greco, here are our top 5 paintings not to be missed.
A leading artist of the Spanish Golden Age, Velázquez’s Las Meninas is his most famous work. The royal family is shown with masterful perspective, use of light and atmosphere.
Grand master of Spanish Art, Goya is shown on all 3 floors of the Prado. In Madrid’s most emblematic artwork, Goya depicts the battle between Spanish patriots and Napoleon’s army.
This is one of the great paintings of the Spanish Renaissance and one of El Greco’s most famous works. Take note of the unknown man’s expressive gaze and natural hand gesture.
This triptych shows three scenes: paradise, hell and the creation of Eve and the fountain of life. Created by early Dutch master Bosch, don’t miss this complex, beautiful work.
A Flemish Baroque painter, Rubens emphasized movement, color and sensuality. No exception here — the Three Graces, born of Zeus’s affairs, lived joyously among the gods.

What people are saying about Museo del Prado
Irene was fantastic, she spent time helping you understand the history of the the work, the technical construction and how to identify the symbolic references for the eras the various prices depicted. This was incredibly useful when visiting the Reina Sofia the next day as you could see the various influences from multiple artists on the works in both museums. Fantastic experience.
Thre museum is wonderful but we appreciated most of all the The guide Macarena was perfect: competent, knowledgeable, attentive, with very good English. 90 minutes were over before we knew this because we were taken away by the excursion. Thank you very much for this memorable experience!
Iker is knowledgable, speaks great English and if he did not know the answer to a question, which was very unusual, he said so. He also listened to what we wanted to see and took us to the things we asked to visit. Great host!
For someone who is keen on art but knows very little on pre 20th century art I found the tour invaluable in highlighting the most important paintings/artists in what is a massive, overwhelming collection at the Prado.
Loved the experience with the tour guide. The interesting part is that the guid knew how to explain the painting from different angles in order to understand the painting techniques. I highly recommend it.
