    What to Expect
    Visit: Prado National Museum, Calle Ruiz de Alarcon 23, 28014 Madrid Spain

    The Prado (Museo Nacional del Prado) and its collections of paintings, drawings, and sculpture reflect the history of Spain, whose waning role on the international stage in the 19th century reduced its appeal for foreign artists. Spanish artists now trained and worked abroad: in Rome at the beginning of the century, and from the mid-century onward in Paris, the new world capital of art. The nationalistic fervor that characterized the entire century, reflected by Spanish artists in canvases celebrating the country’s peoples, landscapes and history, and the Disentailment of ecclesiastical possessions which, when they entered the Prado from the Museo de la Trinidad, significantly enriched the original holdings from the Royal Collection, are all reflected in the Museum’s collections, which terminate in 1881, the year of Picasso’s birth.

    While primarily oriented towards painting, these collections also include outstanding examples of sculpture, the decorative arts and works on paper, from antiquity to the 19th century.

    We should have skipped the line. Much easier to purchase online and get directly in because if you don't, you'll be waiting awhile to enter. The Prado is well worth visiting because of the amount of artwork viewable. The numbering of the rooms is definitely confusing, and the

    The museum is excellent! The tour service provided through Headcount is not! The summary implies a private tour in the chosen language lasting 2 hrs- The tour we got was in a group of 15 , with both languages (Spanish and English) lasting one hour (30 min if you remove the

    I didn't know what to expect but this is a most modern gallery with the best historic paintings I've ever seen. A match to the Louvre and well worth a visit.
