El Prado is widely considered to have one of the world's finest collections of European art, dating from the 12th century to the early 20th century. It's based on the former Spanish Royal Collection, the single best collection of Spanish art in the world. Founded as a museum of painting and sculpture in 1819, it also contains important collections of other types of works. Explore one of the greatest art museums in the world without having to queue.
