Learn about the history of the Prado on this 4-hour tour. See the dazzling display of works by the great European masters such as Velázquez, Goya, Raphael, Rubens and others with a professional guide. Housed in an 18th-century neoclassical building, the Prado opened as a museum in 1819. Spain’s queen at the time was impressed with the Louvre in Paris and wanted to showcase an enormous collection in her own country. At the Reina Sofía Museum, see works by Spain’s top 20th-century artists, including Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dalí. Your guide will provide commentary on the art, from abstractionism to cubism, to surrealism and modernism.
