After visiting Museo del Prado, I spent two hours walking slowly on the Prado avenue to recover from standing position admiring paintings. Paseo del Prado is really worth visiting from A to Z.

It's a big Avenue with monuments from one side (botanic garden, Prado museum, etc) and stores in the other side. A mandatory area to visit.

Oh, this stretch of road sort of reminds me of the Park Avenue in New York City. Its a very nice and pleasant street to walk and admire. There is a couple of museums on this street with buses too. There's also some very beautiful fountains along it too. One Sunday when we were there, one part of the road... More

The infamous street Paseo de Prado in Madrid is a must walk while visiting Madrid. There are benches, fountains, trees, just a pleasure to take a stroll, especially after dinner. The famous museums Prado and Thyssen are located on this street.

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
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.
