What do we see?
With our in-house art aficionados (our teachers), we'll visit Madrid's Golden Triangle of Art. The three museums that comprise it are:
- Museo de Prado – As Spain's most important museum, the Prado includes works by artists like Diego Velázquez and Francisco de Goya, plus renowned European artists like Rubens, Rembrandt and more. The Prado's collection dates back to the 12th century.
- Reina Sofia – A museum dedicated to Spanish art, the Queen Sofia Museum features many of the most significant works of Picasso and Dalí, among others. Named after the Queen consort of Spain, Sofia, the museum also hosts a large literary and audiovisual archive.
- Thyssen Bornemisza – With over 1,600 works the Thyssen Bornemisza museum was once the world's second largest private art collection, belonging to Swiss Baron Heinrich von Thyssen. It is known for "filling in the gaps" of the other two museums, with collections from periods not found in neither Prado nor Sofia.
