    It started badly, they summoned us next to the statue of Goya, supposedly they were waiting for us with a white umbrella. But there was no one, five minutes later a person without an umbrella appeared who told us that our guide was going to delay 30 minutes. He also had to give us the museum guide and they didn't deliver it to us either. After the wait, the visit and the guide went well, although it is somewhat short.
