Madrid und der Prado = Madrid and the Prado : art and architecture
For Madrid the Prado is without a doubt what the Louvre is for Paris and the Uffizi for Florence. A guidebook to this museum with a knowledgeable commentary is therefore essential for really getting to know Madrid. However this richly illustrated book not only portrays the dynamic relationship of the city and its art, it also relates a long and chequered history - from its beginnings and its charms as a residence, to the Civil War and modern times - expressed in countless churches, buildings, and squares. With this authoritative and visually striking book, simply browsing through its pages becomes a pleasant, culturally informed stroll through Madrid's streets.
