The museum offers a very interesting collection of must see paintings. We loved Goya and Velasquez but also enjoyed the sculpture bit. Unfortunately the museum is free only at the end of the day, so you need to queue for an hour to get in...More

Velasquez, Goya, El Greco, the Spanish artists. They say you need 6 hours to see everything, but I think it might take longer. See your favorites on your first visit, then if you have time, come back on another day.

Paseo del Prado
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
