With its exceptional collection of Spanish masterpieces, this museum is one of the most visited sites in the world. The Prado Museum boasts over 4,800 pieces of Spanish paintings. To get the most out of your visit, follow one of the museum’s recommended “routes.” On your self-guided tour, you’ll see the most important highlights, such as masterpieces by Goya, El Greco, and Velázquez.
