Madrid: Museo del Prado. Managed to keep my visit to about 40 minutes and saw what I wanted to see. Goya's dark paintings are fantastically depressing and I was also impressed by the religious works of Zubarán. There was a nice Caravaggio and a dainty Poussin. The Velázquez work "Las Meninas" is impressive in real life however the other Spanish art left me completely unmoved. Not sure how El Greco managed to convince so many but his paintings are total bollocks.
