Experience a Spanish art history lesson with a local expert in Madrid.

Art history lovers, this one's for you. The Prado and the Reina Sofia are two of the most impressive museums in Europe, and it’s hard to find anyone more inspired by them than art expert and local guide Federico. Join him in his hometown of Madrid, where he’ll share the highlights of both museums while giving you an overview of Spanish art history. You’ll learn about the different periods and styles of Spanish art, from the Renaissance and Baroque to Surrealism and Expressionism. Expect to meet the masters along the way—you’ll get to know famous Spanish painters like Velázquez, Goya, Miro, Dalí, and Picasso. He'll also reveal the inspiration and meaning behind some of their most compelling masterpieces, like Las Meninas. With Federico’s signature flair for storytelling, you’ll be whisked away to the art galleries of Madrid during this Online Escape.
