The Paseo del Prado is a beautiful wide boulevard with beautiful fountains at various points, including Neptuno and Cibeles, each quite stunning. The Paseo del prado passes the Museo del Prado and the Ritz Hotel, and the center is tree lined with kiosks along the way. It is a great place for a shaded, relaxing walk. Don't miss it when...

If you visit one museum in the Madrid, this is the one to choose. I am not a huge art fan, so that's why I love the Prado. Rembrandts, Goya, El Greco, Titian and others well represented here.

A delightful walk among trees of different hues, changingg colour in the autumn sunshine. It's wide enough to accommodate tourists without feeling hemmed in and far enough Way from traffic for it not to be a problem.

The street is not very long, however, it has a charm of an old historical site by itself. Lots of shops and tourists, this street seems to never sleep. As it goes from Plaza del Sol, it's very easy to find the street and to follow it till you bump into Prada Museum :-) Lots of nice cafes to visit... More

Great to walk amoungst the trees on a sunny winters afternoon. Fountains and cyclists. A few street vendors at one end. Nice and relaxing. Worth it as part of your city itinary.

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.
