Based on the former Spanish Royal Collection, see a thousand fascinating works on display housed in a beautiful old castle. A trip to Prado is definitely worth a visit. Art lovers can enjoy works from from Spanish masters like Velázquez and Goya, to works by Titian, Rembrandt, El Greco, Rubens and more. With your skip-the-line ticket, you'll get right in - to both the Permanent and Temporary Exhibitions!
At one of the world's premier art galleries, there is more than 7000 paintings held in the Museo del Prado’s collection (although only around 1500 are currently on display). The collection is a representation of 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 sombre, sometimes darkly psychological, works of Goya - widely considered to be the most important Spanish artist of his era.
Apart from Spanish art - Prado has works by a number of Flemish masters: Peter Paul Rubens, Pieter Bruegel, and Anton Van Dyck. 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.
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 much time as you can - this is Spain, there's no need to rush.
