Why You Shouldn't Miss This
The Prado Museum is a landmark of huge national and global importance. Occupying a 18th-century Neo-classical building, the Prado Museum is home to over 20,000 works of art that include around 7,500 paintings, 8,000 drawings, 4,800 prints, and 1,000 sculptures and other works of art and historical documents.
The museum was opened in 1819 as a museum of paintings and sculpture and was influenced heavily by the existing royal collection. This royal collection still forms the main core of the museum's exhibitions. Some of the greats whose works adorn the Prado walls are Francisco Goya, El Greco, Diego Velazquez, Hieronymus Bosch, Peter Paul Rubens and Titian. Thousands of other paintings from the Renaissance and Baroque period are also on display at the Prado Museum.
