Considered an important landmark from Madrid's rich art history, the Museo Nacional del Prado exhibits paintings by Goya, Velázquez, Murillo, Zurbarán, El Greco, Ribera, Titian, Boticelli, Tintoretto, El Bosco, Rubens, Van Dyck, Poussin and Durer. Carlos III commissioned Juan de Villanueva to design this beautiful building, which was converted into an art gallery in 1819. In July of 2005, the Council of Ministers approved an expansion plan which increased the museum's total space by 50 percent, and allowed for 500 more works of the permanent collection to be showcased. On October 30, 2007, the annex opened with a collection of 19th-century Spanish artwork which enabled the Prado to reclaim its glory as a crown jewel of Europe. Come for the art; stay for the architecture.
ugh there was snakes all in the place when i visited animal conrtoll was called and everyone evacuated the building one person ended up getting bitten although we did get a full refund i hated the trip because of that place......... : (
I am not really the type of person who is into art museums, but i was still able to enjoy everything here. I loved the Goya section. I went to the Prado about a week after i went to the Louvre, and I must say i enjoyed the Prado more. I don't know what it is, but it pulls you in. I would Definitely visit again if i could.
Beautiful spanish paintings and other stuff!!! It's a lovely place!!! When i went there, they the Pablo Picasso collection and it was gorgeous but you should go to the museum first and then to see Pablo Picasso's collection so you can compare what he did,I'd definitly go again!!!
You can enjoy all the masterpieces of El Greco, Goya, Velazquez, Murillo, talking about the spanish artists.
I recomend to spend a little more time also taking a look into the El Bosco paintings, they are good but strange for the time he painted them. You will see.
At teh very beginning of the tour in the Museum you can see and enjoy the master piece of Frangelico, La Anunciaci�n a la Virgen Mar�a.
