Like most of the streets in Madrid this is a pretty place with lots of buildings, art and the normal hustle and bustle of Madrid. We wondered around Madrid one day without necessarily heading anywhere in particular & we ended up here after hours of walking. This is the best way to see Madrid. Leave your hotel and just walk...

It could be very busy at the end of the day and on weekend, but a nice place, lots of trees and plants, well maintained. Lots of vendor stands.

It's nice walk , but not something you should mark as a must - it was merging with my visit to the Prado museum so took the time to appreciate it.

This plaza is so attractive that it would be worth stopping by even if you were not going to the Prado. Since you are already going to the museum, take five more minutes to relax in the plaza. TIP: The vendors in the park across from the Prado offer a variety of souvenirs at good prices.

Beautiful, long, and a good time-passer to spend while in line for the Prado Museum. No public restrooms or shady trees in case of rain.

This densely tree lined, wide main boulevard of Madrid is lovely! It is the Golden Triangle of Art. Enjoy!

You will pass it if you visit the Prado Museum. Very beautiful scenery. There are such beautiful sculptures and fountains.

I walked the Paseo del Prado several times during my week stay. It's shady, interesting, beautiful and provides a safe and easy walking route to several tourist stops.
