Adios Madrid! Prado & Reina Sofia/Art Gallery Museums
If you are in Madrid, do not miss out these famous museums & art galleries...........from Goya, Picasso, Velazquez, Murillo to El Greco......
Considered by many to be "the best art gallery in the world", the Prado Museum is, if not the best, then one of the most respected art centres and is a must-see on any visit to Madrid! Its walls are decked with the best collections of works of art of the Spanish School from the 16th through the 18th century. It also houses large collections from both the Flemish & Venetian schools, as well as smaller collections by German, French & English artists.
