By taking a short walk through Madrid’s golden triangle of art you can see works by some of history’s greatest artists within the span of about one kilometer. The Prado, the Thyssen-Bornemisza, and the Reina Sofía are all located within close proximity to one another along the Paseo del Prado and are must-see historic sites when traveling to Madrid. The Prado Museum is one of Spain’s main national art museums, featuring artists such as Francisco Goya, El Greco, Titian, and Diego Velázquez, it is considered by many to be one of the greatest museums in the world. The nearby Thyssen-Bornemisza was the second-largest private art collection at one time, second only to the British Royal Collection. The third museum on the Paseo del Prado is the Reina Sofía which was named after Queen Sofia when it was opened in 1992. This museum is Spain’s national museum of 20th-century art and is home to works by artists like Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali, making its collection the more modern of the Golden Triangle. When visiting Madrid, either studying towards a degree, brushing up on art history to polish up some lectures, or just to take in some of the wonderful sites that Spain has to offer, the Paseo del Prado is certainly worth checking out.
