Why You Shouldn't Miss This

The Prado Museum is a landmark of huge national and global importance.

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.
