Spanish & English

De camino a allí, pasamos junto al Museo Nacional del Prado.  Junto con el Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza y el Museo Reina Sofía, el Museo Nacional del Prado forma el Triángulo de Arte, una meta para amantes del arte de todo el mundo.  La estatua de Velázquez preside la fachada principal, y tanto el exterior del museo como los alrededores, nos parecen fantásticos.

On the way there, we pass together to the National Prado Museum.  Together with the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the Reina Sofía Museum, the National Prado Museum forms the Art Triangle, a target for art lovers from all of the world.  The statue of Velázques presides (over) the principal facade, and both the exterior of the museum like the surrounding (area), they seem to us fantastic.
