The Paseo del Prado is a short section of the main street that runs north-south through the center of Madrid. It's line with trees, and in the summer, outdoor bars and cafes. Because it runs alongside the Prado Museum, it's often crowded with people who hurry to catch the lights to cross this broad and beautiful avenue.

Cool and shady in the midsummer heat, restful and invigorating at the same time. Lovely spaces for reflection, amid the bustling city

I was here in early November, 2014 on a business trip and got some time to sneak away and take in some of the sights. Very lovely walk, only interrupted by occasional construction to renovate sidewalks and such.

This lovely avenue demonstrates what a city can do if it puts its mind to creating a functional green space. It is a stroll worth taking.

Paseo del Prado is one of Madrid's main boulevards, which runs from the beautiful Plaza de Cibeles to Plaza del Emperador Carlos V, often called Plaza de Atocha after the nearby Atocha train station. Spend a few hours here and stroll along the Paseo, which is famous for its magnificent art. It is home to the Golden Triangle of Art,... More
