Enjoy all the beauty and history of the Prado Museum, the main National Art Museum in Spain. Located in central Madrid, 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, based on the former Spanish Royal Collection and the single best collection of Spanish art. Founded as a museum of paintings 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 and awe at the splendorous works of Francisco Goya, the single most extensively represented artist, as well as by Hieronymus Bosch, El Greco, Peter Paul Rubens, Titian, and Diego Velázquez.
El Retiro has over 19,000 trees from 167 different species, a lake, a wide variety of different sculptures, notable buildings and gardens which make it one of the world’s most famous parks as well as one of Madrid’s top attractions. Despite being incredibly large, thanks to this tour, it is possible to see all of El Retiro´s jewels and hidden gems – your guide will lead you on a route through the best-known sites of El Retiro (such as the Crystal Palace, the Gate of Philip IV and the Royal Observatory), as well as to a few places that don’t feature in all the guide books.
Here your tour will finish, leaving you with the opportunity to relax on the grass, enjoy an ice cream or even rent a rowboat and explore the park’s famous lake.
