Introduction:

On this private tour we start by visiting the world-renowned Prado Museum. Among Spainīs contributions to world culture is her art, and represented here are three of its greatest masters--Goya, Velazquez, and El Greco, but you'll also find the great works of Rubens and Titian. The Prado first opened in 1819 to display the Spanish royal art collection. With the anticlerical laws of 1836, many churches, monasteries, and convents were forced to hand over their collections. Now the museum holds some seven thousand pieces of art. After visiting the Prado, we make our way to the Palacio de Oriente usually called the Palacio Real (Royal Palace) it was constructed on the site of a Moorish fortress, destroyed by a fire in 1734. The first stone was placed in 1737 and the Italian architects Juan Bautista Sacchetti and Francisco Sabatini were commissioned for its construction.
