Description

The Prado is without doubt for Madrid what the Louvre is for Paris and the Uffizi for Florence. A guidebook through this museum with a knowledgeable commen-tary is therefore essential for really getting to know Madrid. However, this richly illustrated book not only portrays the city and its art in a dynamic relationship, it also relates a long and checkered history - from its be-ginnings and its charms as a residence, to the Civil War and modern times - expressed in countless churches, buildings, and squares. With this competent and visually discerning book, simply browsing through its pages becomes a culturally pleasant stroll through Madrid's streets.
