A Classy Walk

A nice and relaxing walk from Cibeles Plaza to past the museums and gardens. Though the avenue is busy with traffic, the trees give nice shade

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Prado on a rainy Saturday. The space so grand and was beautifully arranged for both view and comfort. We enjoyed the Spanish masters including Goya, Valesquez and El Greco but the two masterpieces by El Bosco (Heironymous Bosch) were fascinating.

It is a very pleasant avenue with museums, shopping centers, restaurants and a lot of office buildings. The walk is very pleasant.

Not being an art connoisseur, I don't know much history about the paintings but still feel it's a must see! Can't help it but "The Bearded Woman" has left an impression for me. Don't think you will be disappointed but if you have the time, I would take a tour with a guide. Didn't get close to seeing all of... More

This is the area you want to be, this is the main thoroughfare from Plaza de Cibeles to Estacion de Atocha, and off it are probably most things you will want to see including hotels, tapas, restaurants and of course the 3 Art Museums

My wife and I spent 4.5 hours going through the prado and visited all the rooms, but should have spent several days to do it justice!

To be face to face with paintings that I had only just heard of and studied about was an amazing thing. Diego Velazquez and Goya are must sees when you are here. The Rembrandt piece was just eyecatching.

Modern art in this huge old hospital is amazing and not to be missed Seeing so many Picasso's is thrilling and worth the crowds.

Note that it is my second time in the museum but it is always a pleasure. Found out that if you visit after 5:00 the entrance is free. Although it is well worth the ticket fee. I love to walk through every room and appreciate the art in each room.

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
