Description

Based on the former Spanish Royal Collection, the Prado is a beautiful old castle with more than a thousand fascinating works on display. From Spanish masters like Velázquez and Goya, to works by Titian, Rembrandt, El Greco, Rubens and more, this is a must-see for the art lover. And with this skip-the-line ticket you'll get right in - to both the Permanent and Temporary Exhibitions!

Welcome to one of the world's premier art galleries. The more than 7000 paintings held in the Museo del Prado’s collection (although only around 1500 are currently on display) are a penetrating look at the celebrated history of Spanish art.

The collection includes a large number of paintings by Spanish Golden Age golden boy Velázquez, and an overview of the somber, sometimes darkly psychological, works of Goya - widely considered to be the most important Spanish artist of his era.

And it's not just Spanish art - Prado has works by a number of Flemish masters: Peter Paul Rubens, Pieter Bruegel, and Anton Van Dyck. And their collection also includes the remarkable Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch, a weird-as-heck - and thoroughly wonderful - triptych. Full of hallucinatory images of hedonism, it's thought to perhaps be a warning against the temptations of pleasure-seeking but, on the other hand... he makes it all look so good.

With one of the world's finest collections of European art from the 12th century to the early 19th century, housed in a splendid castle, the Museo del Prado is one of the most visited art museums in the world. When you're there, you'll know why.

Make sure to give yourself plenty of time, and go at a relaxed pace; there is so much to see here that it can be overwhelming if you try to race through. Instead, slow down and spend as long as you can - this is Spain, there's no need to rush.

Fortuny (1838-1874) - (21 November 2017 - 18 March 2018)

The Museo Nacional del Prado's latest exhibition focuses on the life and work of legendary Spanish painter Mariano Fortuny y Marsal. Spread across two galleries, it's the Prado's first retrospective of the innovative artist and displays many of his most celebrated paintings and etchings.

Insider tip

Go in the morning for more chance of peace and quiet. The museum is worth an extended visit, so plan to grab lunch at the excellent Café Prado, then carry on exploring the exhibits. Convenient and delicious.

This was great. Used Tiquets for the first time. Booked Prado in Madrid, and made a mistake booking for a wrong day. But, the tickets are valid for 1 year (I don`t know if that`s because of the museum or Tiquets service). Went in without problems. Will definitely use to buy tickets again ahead of time!

I visitied Prado on Tuesday late afternoon. I was delighted that there were no queues there. The museum is big and remember: you need good shoes to go all the showrooms and see wonderful art pieces.
