La visita fue superinteresante. Ya habíamos estado en El Prado, pero es el primer tour que hacemos y totalmente recomendable!! Pablo, el guía, es muy simpático. No solo nos enseñó lo mejor del museo, sino que añadió mucha reflexión y explicaciones que hacen que todo cobre sentido y que de verdad aprendas. Al terminar, recuerdas un montón de historias, porque además te cuenta muchas curiosidades (e incluso salseos, jeje) sobre los cuadros y los artistas.
