The Prado Museum is Madrid’s top cultural sight, and one of the world’s greatest art galleries. This ancient museum opened in 1819 as a Royal Museum of Painting and Sculpture. The Bicentenary was just celebrated last year, a commemoration that will reveal the path covered since 1819 until today. The collection currently comprises around 7,600 paintings, 1,000 sculptures, 4,800 prints and 8,200 drawings, in addition to a large number of historic documents. During your tour of this museum, your knowledgeable guide will introduce you to the prestigious works of Las Meninas and Surrender at Breda (The Lances) by Velazquez, Garden of Earthly Delights, work of Bosch, The Third of May, Goya and many others. Journey through the history of Spanish art and learn about works by artists such as Goya and Velazaquez.
On our next stop we will discover the treasure-house of contemporary and modern art, Reína Sofía Museum. Get to know the stories behind the famous works of contemporary artists such as Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, and Joan Miró. Learn about the bombings and suffering experienced by people in Guernica and how this event shocked Picasso, resulting in the masterpiece of Guernica. Admire the most acclaimed artworks of the 11,000 pieces collection of the museum including Man with a pipe, Miró, Figure at the Window and The Great Masturbator by Salvador Dalí. This museum is housed in a refurbished old hospital building, and its vaulted hallways are the ideal place to discover some of the finest 20th-century Spanish art, from abstractionism to cubism, surrealism to modernism.
