Full description
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.

Fantastic

Our guide Minerva showed us round both musea en had a clear story around the paintings that she took us to. We loved an admired the way she explained en let us feel the paintings. She told much more then just a story. She gave soul to the trip. I can only hope that much more people will have the pleasure of meeting Minerva on their tours.

Hemos realizado la actividad con Alfonso. Ambas visitas son un recorrido por las obras maestras que encontramos en estos dos museos. Las explicaciones han sido acordes a su belleza, enmarcándolas en el contexto temporal en el que se realizaron. Además Alfonso transmite con pasión, haciendo la experiencia aún más disfrutable. Todo un placer haberla realizado!!!
