Discover one of the world's finest art collections!

The Museo del Prado offers you a mind blowing collection of paintings, some of the absolute gems of the art-world. The collection currently comprises around 7,600 paintings, 1,000 sculptures, 4,800 prints and 8,200 drawings, in addition to a large number of other works of art and historic documents. The best-known work on display at the museum is Las Meninas by Velázquez. Velázquez not only provided the Prado with his own works, but his keen eye and sensibility was also responsible for bringing much of the museum's fine collection of Italian masters to Spain. Definitely a must-see if you are visiting Madrid!
