Everybody has to see the Prado. One of the best art museums in the world. I could spend days there. The galleries of artists including Goya, Titian, Velasquez, are almost too full to absorb. Very educational, pleasant atmosphere, easy to understand.
Stopping by the Prado while in Madrid is a MUST! This museum is filled with some of the most famous works of art in the world, and should be at the top of the list for any visitor. Make a point to stop by the...More
As an art lover/student, a longstanding ambition achieved - amazing variety (pre-20th century), so impressed by Spanish I didn't know well (Zurbaran etc). Yes it's busy and lots of guided groups but you can avoid them and it makes it exciting! Definitely book tickets in...More
Goya, El Greco, Velasquez, Titian and too many more to name. One of the world’s best museums! Buy your tix on-line to avoid a long wait. New York Times has a great article from the museum. Orator on how to see the highlights in 45...More
The museum itself is amazing. Definitely one of my favorites around the world. It’s filled with many art treasures. I would STRONGLY recommend buying you tickets online and avoid the loooong lines! Many websites in which you can. My only and very strong complaint is...More
The collection of art from medieval (which is downstairs and very interesting not to be missed) through to the 20th Century is almost overwhelming a quick walk round will take 2-3 hours. There are masterpieces aplenty my only criticism is the guide lists the masterpieces...More
I mostly go to museums to check the building itself more than the pieces, and to be honest the El Prado building does not have anything attractive about it. I decided to go nevertheless, because of its importance and even though I am not much...More
The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard is much-visited by both locals and tourists. The world-famous Prado, the Reina Sofia, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de
Cibeles and Círculo de Bellas Artes cultural centers are other artsy hangouts to check out, with rooftop bars that provide impressive views of the city. While the Paseo del Prado and its roundabouts form a busy throughway in Madrid, a broad green pedestrian park in the middle is a calm and gorgeous place for a relaxing stroll. Just east of the museums, the Retiro Park is always a confluence of activity as families and friends of all ages take to the pretty paths and lawns to stretch their legs or to have a picnic.
