Admire the Prado’s amazing artwork

While you are visiting Madrid, you cannot miss Prado National Museum, where you will learn about the museum’s history as you walk around admiring the artwork. The Prado Museum is Madrid’s top cultural sight, and one of the world’s greatest art galleries; its dazzling display of works by the great European masters such as Velázquez, Goya, Raphael, Rubens, and Bosch (among other major Italian and Flemish artists), is housed in an 18th-century Neo-Classical building that opened as a museum in 1819. Its name derives from the district where it is located, formerly an area of market gardens known as the “prado” or meadow. The Spanish queen at the time had been impressed with the Louvre in Paris and wanted to showcase an enormous collection in her own country. The result is several thousand works at the present time, with a recent modern extension allowing more of them to be displayed.

You will get to understand all what the artists wanted to explain with their work, their lives and circumstances hidden behind the paintings and also the historic moment where they were created. Learn about spanish history from our art historian and enjoy the visit in a small group that will allow you to have a closer experience.
