Madrid's Museo Nacional del Prado has one of Europe's most important collections of paintings and other art. The core of the collection came from Spanish royalty, the Habsburgs and the Bourbons. Its collection of work by the Spanish Masters - Velazquez, Goya, Murilla and particularly El Greco - is unrivalled. Sculpture, drawings, prints, coins and other decorative objects are also on show.

I have never been to a museum like this. Its collections of paintings are huge and impressive. Not only the spanish school but the flemish and italian are among the best in the world.

Is colossal quality museum!!!

As a gallery for paintings, I would rank The Prado number one.
