Full description
Since it opened in 1819, the Prado Museum has acquired a dazzling array of paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings and decorative art that cover the history of Spanish art to form one of the finest collections of European art in the world. Based on the former Spanish Royal Collection, the Royal Museum would become known as the National Museum of Painting and Sculpture, and subsequently the Museo Nacional del Prado. The collection currently comprises around 7,600 paintings, 1,000 sculptures, 4,800 prints and 8,200 drawings, in addition to a large number of historic documents. With your full-day ticket, you will have access to more than 1,300 works currently on display in the main building. The size of this collection can cause headaches for visitors trying to choose what to see, but the Prado has organized 3 routes that focus on its masterpieces, dating from the Romanesque to the 19th century. Once inside, you can purchase an audio guide to quickly lead you to works by artists such as Bartolomé Bermejo, Pedro Berruguete, Sánchez Coello, El Greco, Ribera, Zurbarán, Murillo, Alonso Cano, Velázquez and Goya.

It was fifth time in Madrid and in the Prado and it never disappoints. This time was very special since I hosted my son, his wife, and the two granddaughters, ages 12 and 13, who live in Granada. My son met his wife in Madrid and just before their first daughter was born they moved to Cadiz. They had only passed through the airport in the past years and this reunion and the tour of all the galleries was very special. My granddaughters stayed with me for the tour and I had a of all the important artists we wanted to see. Goya, Velasquez, Ribera, Ruebens and on and on. The Bosch exhibit was particularly fascinating and as a retired teacher, it was so fantastic to "teach" the museum to my young granddaughters. The map and layout was easy to follow and we found all the important works on my list, easily. I highly recommend this gallery as a "must-see" on Madrid!

our tour guide Lydia was great. She did a fantastic job of providing us with the history of the palace as well as little anecdotes about the monarchs. It was nice getting there early in the morning so we didn't have go contend with other groups or a lot of people. I would really recommend this tour if anyone is looking to visit the palace.
