O Museu do Prado é um dos mais importantes museus do mundo, com uma coleção de mais de 8.000 obras dos melhores artistas espanhóis e internacionais. O museu foi inaugurado no ano de 1819 com a ideia de exibir as obras da coroa espanhola durante a história e apresentar a escola de pintura espanhola em todo o mundo. É o museu com a maior quantidade de obras de artes por metro quadrado e o mais visitado, com mais de 2 milhões de visitantes por ano.
Our guide, Carlos, was amazing. He did a great job of highlighting the main pieces throughout the museum and was extremely personable. We had no idea what to expect going in and were extremely impressed with the individualized attention he gave us and how he went over and above to take us throughout the exhibit. We had a great tour and it left us wanting to see more! It was very easy to connect with Carlos at the museum and he is most certainly what made the tour an exceptional experience!
We enjoyed our tour. The museum is filled with so many wonderful works of art, which was enhanced by our tour guide's knowledge. If one is truly a lover of the art, I would recommend a much longer tour. I will have to return to Madrid someday to continue my tour.
