View detailed Prado-paintings in Google Earth

Google Earth is expanding more and more. A couple of weeks ago we got introduced to flying through ancient Rome using Google Earth. Last week at CES they taught us how to fly through the Alps using a Wii-balance board and today the Google Earth and Maps team announces the newest layer: Prado.

The famous Madrid museum shows his masterpieces online through Google Earth. And not only that, you can zoom into the most famous paintings and even look at the fine details of the paintings.


The paintings have been photographed in a high resolution up to 14 gigapixels. This way you can zoom in almost endlessly and get closer than you can get in the museum itself.

The Prado is the first museum to put its paintings in Google Earth. And I can tell you, it’s absolutely worth it taking a look.
