Housing one of the largest collections of fine art in the world, Prado National Museum is perhaps best known for works by El Greco, Goya, and Velasquez. One of the most visited cultural sites in the world, the museum includes an impressive collection of over 7,000 paintings, 1,000 sculptures, 5,000 prints, and 8,000 drawings. Though Goya is unquestionably the most extensively represented artist in this collection, other highlights include works by Titian, Rubens, Bosch, Caravaggio, Durer, and van Dyck. The main building was designed in 1785 and constructed during the reign of Carlos III, as part of a grand renewal plan meant to bestow upon the city a monumental urban space.

  • The entrance to the Museum is expensive especially for Argentines we depreciated our currency but Museum provides a timetable of visit at no cost among the 18 and 20 hours... that Yes at 19:30 close doors and already do not get ticket and are very strict at the time of closed rooms... we are left with the desire to, but although the Prado Museum beneath our feet, not would have pardoned me pass by Madrid without visiting it!

  • The collection of the Museum is excellent. One of the most complete. Pity that your photographs are not permitted inside, even without the use of flash.

  • One of the finest museums in the world. I loved seeing all the artworks. I went there with my sister and we enjoyed seeing everything they had. They also have lots of pretty sculptures. If you're in Spain you must see this place it's gorgeous. And in front of the museum they usually have artist selling original paintings. Which you're nice to look at 2 also. I recommend this place to anyone.
  • One of the best gallery in Madrid. You can find a lot of famous paintings there. Entrance is for free just two hours before closing. The line is very big but so fast. Highly recommended place. Its one of the must visit place in Madrid. Very cool and so atmospheric!
