Prado National Museum is one of the most important galleries in the world. The magnificent building is one of the finest of late 18th century Neoclassic Architecture by Juan de Villanueva and is part of the Project called “Prado de San Gerónimo”. It contains a vast compilation of paintings and sculptures from the fifteenth to the nineteenth century. Most of the collection are acquisitions of the Spanish Royal Families and religious works from closed down Monasteries in the late 1800’s.
The selection it holds includes paintings, drawings, engravings, sculptures, coins and other artistic objects (over 27.000 total, only 20% in exposition). Among them there’s an outstanding number of paintings from 15th to 19th centuries. Spanish masters such as Velazquez, Goya and El Greco are widely represented. The Italian and flemish schools are represented by Titian, Tintoretto, Raphael, Bosch, Rubens or Rembrandt.
After the visit to the Museum, we will take a walk inside “Parque del Retiro”. This is one of the relevant points of the city. A lake, broad avenues, a rose garden, a statue of the Devil, a Palace made of glass, perfect for a walk!
