We spent a few hours here in one afternoon, it was quite packed but there were still room to walk within feeling too congested. There are great art works from different time period with both English and Spanish description. Time well spent.

Phenomenal collection of famous art and great artists, from renaissance works to later Spanish masters. Worth it to see Las Meninas alone, but every room contains a masterpiece.

is much-visited by both locals and tourists. The
world-famous Prado, the Reina Sofia, and the
Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and

weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free
after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue
of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de
