I went there for two consecutive days and managed to go carefully through most of the exhibition rooms. Being somewhat fastidious when it comes to art and art exhibits, I absolutely recommend at least one visit. And please do not limit your visit to Guernica,...More

weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free
after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue
of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de
