Pepe’s great escape!
Created especially for younger visitors, this multimedia quiz featured in La Sala del Prado used playful games and lively animations to bring to life a host of historical facts relating to art works in ‘Portrait of Spain’, including some of the fashion hits of the sixteenth century royal court, what a Spanish peasant could expect for dinner and the significance of the cacao bean.  Pepe’s great escape! is available to play online.
