Exceptional


The Museo del Prado is one of the most visited museums in the world and also one of the most valuable for its extensive collection of masterpieces, most of them by famous artists such as Titian, Rubens, Velazquez, Goya, El Greco or Hieronymus Bosch. It also features the works of other artists such as Murillo, Van Dyck or Tintorerro but with less presence in the museum. It was created by the architect Juan de Villanueva during the reign of Carlos III and Carlos IV, ending its construction in the early nineteenth century. With a predominantly Neo-classical style, the Prado was one of the masterpieces built by the Spanish neoclassical artist, not to mention other of his works such as El Escorial, the Botanical Garden and the Astronomical Observatory. Inside the museum you can find more than 8000 works of art, mainly from the Royal Collection, the Museo de la Trinidad (Spanish National Museum of the eighteenth century) and the fund called New Acquisitions (donated works and legacies of various artists). The Museum also offers, ias an addition to the exhibitions, theatrical performances, screenings of various documentaries and lectures on current exhibitions.
