The massive Museu del Prado in Madrid, Spain, is home to one of the greatest art collections in the world. With such a huge collection, it can be difficult to determine which prominent pieces one should view, so the museum suggests three different routes visitors should take that are dependent on how much time they have available. With one, two and three hour routes, guests can pinpoint 15, 30 or 50 historic pieces from the likes of Velasquez, Goya and Rembrandt. If a visitor has even more time on hand, there are currently more than 1,300 works available for viewing in the Museo del Prado.
This is the largest art museum in all of Spain and, though only around 1,300 pieces are shown, the full collection consists of more than 20,000 works in total. If you can’t make it to Madrid any time soon but would still like to view the beautiful artwork, Google Earth offers a virtual walkthrough of the museum, but it is incomparable to the impact of seeing the art in person.
