After a two year hiatus from traveling due to the pandemic, I had the opportunity to help run a Madrid training tour for teachers, and it was incredible! The teachers and the rest of the training staff were so excited to get back out there and experience the world. It definitely reinvigorated my love for travel after a tough couple of years of postponed and cancelled trips. I had a chance to go to Madrid back in 2017, you can read more about the differences between Barcelona and Madrid, as well as the Royal Palace and Flamenco here. Below are some other wonderful things Madrid has to offer your tour group.
The Prado is one of the most important art museums in Europe housing defining art from the 12th century to the early 20th century. It doesn't just have masterpieces from Spain but from Europe. Its construction started in 1785 but wasn't completed until 1819 under King Ferdinand VII.
From Diego Velazquez, Las Meninas, to Francisco Goy's The Third of May to Hieronymus Bosch, The Garden of Earthly Delights, the Prado is a must-visit while visiting Madrid.
There are no pictures inside, so just more reason to visit!
