Free entry into the National Museum El Prado

sunny 17 °C
View Península Iberica on atrabuccoc's travel map.

Sundays entry is always free at El Prado.
It was completely amazing; I got in at 9:30am (it opens at 9am and the line was already very long), and I loved every painting.
I rented an audioguide to efficiently use my time through the Museum, and it worked perfectly.
I got goosebumps when I naively entered the room where "The Garden of Earthly Delights" by Hieronymus Bosch was placed. Wow! I listened to the tape three times and walked back to it to observe it several more!
Las Pinturas Negras de Goya impressed me a lot, because of the contrast of those against his old colorful style.
The stories and morals behind each were very interesting, but mostly I liked El Coloso

Well I must run!
I am leaving to Valencia in an hour.

Good luck to everyone,
a warm hug, Bye!
