Housing one of the largest collections of fine art in the world, Prado National Museum is perhaps best known for works by El Greco, Goya, and Velasquez. One of the most visited cultural sites in the world, the museum includes an impressive collection of over 7,000 paintings, 1,000 sculptures, 5,000 prints, and 8,000 drawings. Though Goya is unquestionably the most extensively represented artist in this collection, other highlights include works by Titian, Rubens, Bosch, Caravaggio, Durer, and van Dyck. The main building was designed in 1785 and constructed during the reign of Carlos III, as part of a grand renewal plan meant to bestow upon the city a monumental urban space.

  • The house for the best of Goya and Velazquez with their most famous masterworks. A beautiful building with a great collection. You can walk through the different eras of Spanish art, specially paintings. Be sure to book yourself for a whole day to enjoy all that there is to offer. From 18 to 20h the entry is free, so it-s best to go as soon as they open at 10h to get your tickets.
  • Just an unforgettable experience, near the botanic garden. You loose yourself in the beauty and the story that Goya and Velazquez, among others artists. The paints, the status the magnificent tables. All treasures that teach us and show us from where we've come. Of course 1 time it's not enough to see everything in detail at least for me. I will return to complete my tour. I recommend, go and enjoy..
