We drove back down the hill, and the driver let me out near the prado.
It was painted by the sight-man Jan Brueghel the Elder in about 1620 and is now in the prado museum.
prado was the first name I recognized here since I used to live a few blocks from the prado museum in Madrid when I was 20.
public park and promenade in Madrid, 1640s, Spanish, from Latin pratum "meadow" (see prairie). Cf. Prater, large park in Vienna, German, from Italian prato "meadow." French preau "little meadow," formerly praël, Italian pratello are from Vulgar Latin *pratellum, diminutive of pratum.
