    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.

    In awe - wonderful paintings, primarily classics but some of the later Goyas was more on the modern side. The colours in "the drowing dog" still lingers on my retina.

    We booked online tickets a day ahead — highly recommended to avoid the lines — and enjoyed a rainy Sunday in the Prado. The whole affair is well organized with easy access to the 90+ viewing rooms. As you might imagine the art is heavily...More

    I have been to many major museums in the capital cities of Europe, but this was one of the Best. The El Greco and Goya collections are remarkable.

    What's there to say? Goya, Velasquez, El Greco, Bosch, Breugel, and many other great painters from Europe's 15th-19th centuries. The museum may be a little difficult to navigate, but the lighting and the airflow are good. Expect to spend half a day at least

    No we didn’t use it. Looks like you can pick them up at the entrance.

    The lines tend to be long. Buy in advance if you can, and the line for those who have pre-purchased, will be shorter

    Prado tickets purchased on Trip Advisor. Look for separate side-entrance for those holding pre-purchased tickets
