Study the great masters up close with this fascinating skip the line tour of the Prado Museum, one of the world’s truly great galleries. Home to thousands of works, including priceless paintings by Goya, Velazquez, Titian, Durer, Bosch, Rubens and Rembrandt, the Prado is a Mecca for amateurs and connoisseurs alike.

Duration of tour: 1 hour 30 minutes

The Tour

The Prado Museum is Madrid’s finest cultural sight, and one of the world’s greatest museums; its dazzling display of works by the great European masters housed in an 18th century Neo-Classical building that opened to the public in November 1819. The tour will specifically focus on the works of Bosch, El Greco, Velázquez and Goya. The Prado proudly exhibits a number of masterpieces by each of these four artists and you will learn all about them from the knowledgeable guide. See for yourself the Bosch´s mystical The Seven Deadly Sins and the Four Last Things, view the haunting The Haywain Triptych and gasp at the horrifying Extracting the Stone of Madness. Then behold the multifaceted madness of The Garden of Earthly Delights. Continue to the rooms devoted to El Greco, a Greek artist whose painting and sculpture helped define the Spanish Renaissance and influence various movements to come. See The Nobleman with his Hand on his Chest and admire the spiritual light of The Holy Trinity, the darkness of The Crucifixion and the emotion of The Annunciation. Contemplate varied works of Velázquez such as The Feast of Bacchus, Vulcan's Forge, The Crucified Christ, the many portraits of monarchs on horseback and the magnetic Las Meninas testify. Explore the transition from classical to modern art expressed by the works of Goya and discover how his art had an enormous impact on the later modern artists. Focus on the dazzling Charles IV of Spain and His Family, the unnerving yet absorbing The Third of May 1808 and his Black Paintings.

Includes:
  • Admire incredible works of art by Bosch, El Greco, Velázquez and Goya
  • Beat the queues with ship the line tickets
  • Visit one of the world's greatest museum

The Tour

We'll stop at the Casco Historico de Toledo where you will enjoy it with our guided walking and at your own pace. You'll visit the Alcázar of Toledo, which is a stone fortification located in the highest part of Toledo, Spain. Once used as a Roman palace in the 3rd century, it was restored under Charles I (Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor) and his son Philip II of Spain in the 1540s. In 1521, Hernán Cortés was received by Charles I at the Alcázar, following Cortes' conquest of the Aztecs. Most of the alcázar was rebuilt, or restored, between 1939 and 1957 after the Siege of the Alcázar of the Spanish Civil War. The next stop is at the Catedral Primada. The Primate Cathedral of Saint Mary of Toledo is a Roman Catholic church and it is the seat of the Metropolitan Archdiocese of Toledo. The cathedral of Toledo is one of the three 13th-century High Gothic cathedrals in Spain and is considered, in the opinion of some authorities, to be the magnum opus of the Gothic style in Spain. Visit Santo Tome. The Iglesia de Santo Tomé is a church located in the historical centre of the city of Toledo and was founded after the reconquest of this city by King Alfonso VI of León. However, at the beginning of the 14th century, being in a ruinous state was totally rebuilt in charge of Gonzalo Ruiz de Toledo, Lord of Orgaz and the old minaret of the mosque was transformed into a bell tower in Mudéjar style. Its fame is mainly due to the fact that it contains the painting The Burial of the Count of Orgaz by El Greco, which can be seen by accessing the back of the church.

Park Güell - Much more than a simple park... you will not find any park like this one in the world! Enter Park Güell and descend the big staircase dominated by the dragon, decorated with a mosaic of ceramic tiles, the Catalan style known as “trencadís”. This dragon is one of the most characteristic images of Barcelona. Originally written Park Güell (using the English spelling), the park is arranged around a large central square bordered by a snaky bench covered by the “trencadís” mosaic style. Below the square, the roof is supported by 86 Doric columns shaped like trees, with paths between them, and viaducts on sloping columns: Gaudí's work unites nature and architecture like no other does. Sagrada Familia - Antoni Gaudi's most famous and most recognisable works. The Sagrada Familia is one of the most visited buildings in the world. Visit the astonishing interior of this Basilica, where vaults reach seventy metres. Antoni Gaudí designed a Latin cross plan with five aisles, extremely rich in ornamentation and symbolism. We will also visit the Sagrada Familia museum, where you will see an exhibition of drawings, plaster models and pictures about the history and development of this basilica from its early beginnings to the present day. The museum will also give valuable information about Antoni Gaudi’s life and career.
