Ernesto has an unbelievable level of knowledge with regard to the Prado and all the art within. he is a walking encyclopedia of the great masters and he mentions footnotes of sorts about paintings even when just passing by them. i learned a wealth of information about Spain, the Kings, the famous masters and how Spain was interconnected with Europe at large. Ernesto is very comfortable to be with. this is the tour guide you want to hire!
