Subject: Madrid.
I prefer the smaller Reina Sofia Museum, which is more toward downtown than the Prado. Yes, I was travelling with a group of my Spanish students, but I have been to many museums throught the US and Europe. Yes, I know something about art, although I am self-taught, mostly through books and videos. Since we didn't have a guide, I was the one who pointed out the periods styles, colors, etc. to my students. Only a handful of us elected to see the modern works at Reina Sofia, the most famous of which is Picasso's Guernica. It was a smaller, more intimate museum, and very under-attended.
