The Prado - one of the World’s Great Museums

Paintings from the Habsburg and Bourbon royal collections form the basis of the Prado collection.  Early Flemish masterpieces by Rogier van der Weyden and Bosch hang near works by Titian and Rubens. But the Prado’s wealth lies in its collection of works by the great “Golden Age” Spanish artists, El Greco, Velázquez (including his great painting Las Meninas) Zurbarán, Murillo, and the later multi-talented Goya.
