Know More about this tour

Welcome to one of the world's premier art galleries. The more than 7000 paintings held in the Museo del Prado’s collection (although only around 1500 are currently on display) are a penetrating look at the celebrated history of Spanish art.

The collection includes a large number of paintings by Spanish Golden Age golden boy Velázquez, and an overview of the somber, sometimes darkly psychological, works of Goya - widely considered to be the most important Spanish artist of his era.

And it's not just Spanish art - Prado has works by a number of Flemish masters: Peter Paul Rubens, Pieter Bruegel, and Anton Van Dyck. And their collection also includes the remarkable Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch, a weird-as-heck - and thoroughly wonderful - triptych. Full of hallucinatory images of hedonism, it's thought to perhaps be a warning against the temptations of pleasure-seeking but, on the other hand... he makes it all look *so* good.

With one of the world's finest collections of European art from the 12th century to the early 19th century, housed in a splendid castle, the Museo del Prado is one of the most visited art museums in the world. When you're there, you'll know why.

Make sure to give yourself *plenty* of time, and go at a relaxed pace; there is so much to see here that it can be overwhelming if you try to race through. Instead, slow down and spend as long as you can - this is Spain, there's no need to rush.
