Tour description

A must-see at the Prado Museum!  In just an hour and a half, we will immerse ourselves in time travel, delving into the masterpieces of a time when Spain was the greatest of all known empires. From the dawn of its rise to the beginning of its decline, understand the history of a country through its artists and the evolution of its art.

Among other works, we will contemplate:

  • Previous influences: The Descent from the Cross by Van der Weyden, The Annunciation by Fra Angelico, and The Hay Chariot by Bosch.
  • Art at the service of the Hispanic monarchy: The Lavatory by Tintoretto, Charles V and The Furies by Titian, Las Meninas by Velázquez.
  • The beginning of the end: The Family of Charles IV by Goya.

IMPORTANT: The entrance to the Museum must be purchased by each traveler on their own, so we will meet at the meeting point each one with their own ticket. 

You can buy it online (the most convenient) or at the ticket office (in which case you should be 30 minutes before to queue). 
If you have doubts about how to do it do not hesitate to contact me and I will help you :)

    I'll be right in front of the ticket office, under the statue of Goya with a fuchsia pink shirt and an accreditation.

Maria es una guía estupenda , no solamente te enseña a ver el arte propiamente dicho pero te lo explica con sus detalles para que puedas entender las diferentes obras. Es muy atenta y paciente. . Lo más probable que volveremos a contratarla. Para nosotros desde luego se merece un 10. Gracias Maria por este tour tan ameno.

La experiencia fue muy buena, la manera en que explicaba las cosas y el contenido del tour, me pareció que fue ameno y dinámico. Aprendí mucho y fue entretenido, volvería a repetir la experiencia y definitivamente lo recomiendo.

Nos hizo un recorrido muy completo y la información sobre los cuadros no era la típica , lo contaba con anécdotas interesantes y centrándose en detalles que normalmente se nos pasan por alto y a pesar de haber estado ya otras veces en el Prado la visita nos sorprendió para bien .
