This is an absolute must-see in Madrid, the place just goes on and on! You could spend all day there and still not see it all. Handy tip: on the back of the museum map are thumbnails of all the museum's "greatest hits," it's a fun scavenger hunt to try and find them all!

I am not particularly fond of the Spanish painters, but you cannot help but be impressed with their work. Just the very size of many of the paintings is remarkable. Plus there are other wonderful works by other reknowned painters. I particularly love Portrait of a Cardinal by Rahael, and a Mona Lisa are 2 of my favorities. It is free from 6-8 pm.

Ciao!

Sadly the Prado museum was a big disappointment.

It had only a few masterpieces with the rest of the pieces being very mundane and drab.

I was suspicious as to why the museum was free from 1800 to 2000. Now, I understand.

Don't misunderstand me, it is a very good museum but "IOP" pales in comparison to the London National museum, the Louvre or the Vatican museum.

In summary, I was quite unimpressed. However, remember you get what you pay for!
Ironically, the London museum is Free.

Advice: take a north entrance, it is faster. Definitively El Bosco with his Garden of human sins (heaven & hell) is a must see, but many others such as Velasquez, Goya, Rubens, El Greco etc... Best museum in Madrid.

it has great collection of Bosch. If you only have an hour to visit there, go straight to his collection. It's so worth it.
