    It was fifth time in Madrid and in the Prado and it never disappoints. This time was very special since I hosted my son, his wife, and the two granddaughters, ages 12 and 13, who live in Granada. My son met his wife in Madrid and just before their first daughter was born they moved to Cadiz. They had only passed through the airport in the past years and this reunion and the tour of all the galleries was very special. My granddaughters stayed with me for the tour and I had a of all the important artists we wanted to see. Goya, Velasquez, Ribera, Ruebens and on and on. The Bosch exhibit was particularly fascinating and as a retired teacher, it was so fantastic to "teach" the museum to my young granddaughters. The map and layout was easy to follow and we found all the important works on my list, easily. I highly recommend this gallery as a "must-see" on Madrid!

    If you travel to Madrid, you must visit these museums. It is seldom you can say that you saw the most famous paintings with your own eyes. But you can do so after attending these museums. Unfortunately we were not able to attend all the museums as they were shut down for the first time since 1939 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Hopefully we can attend in the future.
