Stop At: Prado National Museum, Madrid

The building that today houses the Prado national museum was designed by architect Juan de Villanueva in 1785. It was constructed to house the Natural History Cabinet, by orders of King Charles III.
The Museum's first catalogue, published in 1819, included 311 paintings, although at that time its collection comprised just over 1,510 pictures from the various Reales Sitios (Royal Residences). The exceptionally important royal collection, which represents the foundation of the Museum's compilation as we know it today, increased significantly in the 16th century during the time of Charles V and continued to thrive under the succeeding Habsburg and Bourbon Monarchs.
The visit will take place in chronological order,
- Starting with the exhibit hall where we will find J. Bosch masterpieces (El Bosco) (1450-1516): The Table of the 7 Deadly Sins, The Hay Wain, The temptations of San Antonio, The Stone of Madness and The Garden of Delights.
- We will then move on to the rooms dedicated to El Greco (1540-1614): The gentleman's hand on his chest, The Trinity, Christ embraced the cross and The Annunciation;
- Velzquez (1599-1660): The Worship, Drunkards, Equestrian Portraits, the Forge of Vulcan, The Christ, The spinners, Spears and Las Meninas.
- We will end with Goya (1746-1828): The family of Carlos IV Pictures, The Shootings of May 2, Pestles and Black Paintings.

    The overall tour was amazing. Seeing such notable pieces of art from Greco, Velazquez, Goya, Rubens, etc., was a truly and full of culture experience I will cherish the rest of my days. Our tour guide, Amanda, was outstanding and one of the best!

    Tour operator emailed to cancel for “operational issues” the day before which was too late to book with another operator.

    The museum was amazing. Great place and in impecable condition. The tour guide was very nice and professional

    Marta was extremely knowledgable and engaging with a wonderful sense of humor that kept the tour from being too dry. Would do again!

    The guide was excellent. The audio equipment, unfortunately, made the experience less than pleasant. Time to update the audio.

    Great guiding tour with Marta! Really recommend . The kids loved it and helped a lot to keep them entertained and interested

    Julia the tour guide was knowledgeable and spoke good English. It was a Saturday which was busy so I wish we would’ve had more time but we book too late to get the longer tour. The Prado is an amazing place and without the guide we would not have been able to enjoy it as much!

    I wanted a short in, show me the highlights and out. I can't do galleries and museums for too long. This was perfect, the guide spoke excellent English, was very knowledgeable and the tour was the perfect length. The group wasn't large either (mine was about 6 people). I really enjoyed this.

    If you’re going to have a bi-lingual tour make sure the person speaking English can speak it very well and clearly. Marta could not speak English clearly and she also spoke very fast. My friends and I could only understand about every 4th word.

    Our tour guide Nacho’s passion for art shined brightly as he provided us with a most meaningful tour. He guided us with his great knowledge of the art pieces and helped us understand concepts in fun, most interactive ways. We are thankful for his great knowledge and sense of humor. Thank you for a great experience!
