This one museum has a most amazing collection of world class art. And if that isn't enough there are two other first class art museums nearby.

Queues to get in were not a problem at this time of year. Cafe was good for lunch and of course, the paintings and sculptures outstanding.

Paseo del Prado
The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard

Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and
culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On
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
