Museo del Prado

I’ve always wanted to visit the Prado, because I really like their shoes. Unfortunately….

What can I say about one of the world’s greatest galleries? Stendhal syndrome strikes again, as, once more, I’m overwhelmed by the magnificence around me, and I realize that writing that makes me sound a little precious, but no, I’m not exaggerating.


My single favourite painting at the Prado?  Easy. Bosch’s “Garden of Earthly Delights”.

The gallery has an interesting online interactive feature called Bosch. A Story in Pictures.


I’ve realized that if I’m going to finish posting my Madrid notes before the end of the year, I’ll have to speed things up. Hence the abbreviated entry.
