Admire the Amazing Artwork of the Prado Museum
While you are visiting Madrid, you cannot miss the Prado National Museum. Learn about the museum’s history as you walk around admiring the artwork. The Prado Museum is Madrid’s top cultural site 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 housed in the museum today, with a recent modern extension allowing more of them to be displayed.
Understand all that 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 with a small group that allows you to have a more intimate experience.
