Madrid

We will begin with a city sightseeing tour of Madrid and continue with a visit to the Prado Museum.

Madrid showcases the varied architectural styles that the city inherited throughout history. You will be able to find the medieval origins of the city like the Arabic fortress at the Barrio de la Moreria, characterized by the antiquity of its buildings and the taste of its typical restaurants.

We will also cover the Hapsburg Madrid of Felipe II, with its Renaissance and Baroque buildings walking and taking pictures on Calle Mayor, Plaza Mayor and Plaza de la Villa.

Then, we will see the Bourbon Madrid and the urban layout by Carlos III at such places as the Royal Palace, Cibeles Fountain, Neptune Fountain and the Puerta de Alcala. We will also visit the works from the kingdom of Joseph Bonaparte of the 19th century - like the Prado Museum.

We will discover contemporary Madrid on areas such as Gran Via, Paseo de la Castellana, Barrio Salamanca, Plaza de Castilla and Parque del Oeste, as well as the commercial and financial areas of Modern Madrid, like the emblematic Ventas Bullring or Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. During this tour, we will stop at the famous Hard Rock Cafe to enjoy a free drink.

The building that today houses the Museo Nacional del Prado was designed by architect Juan de Villanueva in 1785. It was constructed to house the Natural History Cabinet, by orders of King Charles III. However, the building's final purpose - as the new Royal Museum of Paintings and Sculptures - was the decision of the monarch's grandson, King Ferdinand VII, encouraged by his wife Queen Maria Isabel de Braganza. The Museo Nacional del Prado, opened to the public for the first time in November 1819.

The visit will take place in chronological order, starting with the exhibit hall where the masterpieces of J. Bosch (El Bosco) (1450-1516): The Table of the 7 Deadly Sins, The Hay Wain, The Temptations of San Antonio, The Stone of Madness and The Garden of Delights, to continue with the rooms devoted to the Greco (1540-1614): The Gentleman's Hand on His Chest, The Trinity, Christ Embraced the Cross and the Annunciation. Velazquez (1599-1660): The Worship, Drunkards, Equestrian Portraits, the Forge of Vulcan, The Christ, The Spinners, Spears and Las Meninas, ending with Goya (1746-1828): The Family of Carlos IV Pictures, The Shootings of May 2, Pestles and Black Paintings.
