After seeing the queue to get in at El Prado, I decided to buy the ticket online and save myself a long wait. I was a little scared in case they were not the original tickets, but with the QR that they send you after the purchase, there is no problem, enter directly through the early entrance door.

The line for ticket was so looong. So I went online and got them there imediately. It was a few euros more, but worth it.
