After visiting the Naval Museum we walked along the Paseo Del Prado to the Reina Sofia Museum. This tree lined street is picturesque and shady for a walk on a warm day. We passed the Prado Museum and the Botanical Garden before arriving at the museum near the Atocha Train Station. Limited views of the gardens are available on the... More

Another wonderful place for a walk around town. Lots of things to look at and cool shade to keep you from overheating. If you have the time, this is a great walk.

Nice, but not blown away by it. Walked around a bit, but nothing that really jumped out at us... very little in the way of refreshments too.

The Prado is amazing. One visit may not be enough because of all the masterpieces. If you like art with a religious flavor, this is your place. If you like art that is more contemporary, go to the Prado. Give yourself some time to sit in front of your favorite pieces. The history behind some of the pieces is sometimes... More

This is one of the worlds most beautiful avenues. Incredible fountains, plazas , monuments, architecture greenery and what must be one of the widest avenues in the world. Also usually very peaceful area in this unbelievably lively city.

The Paseo del Prado is one of the best places to walk in Madrid. With it's lush vegetation and numerous fountains it gives you a sense of relaxation. The shade afforded by the tall trees keep the tempature cool. With the musuems and park on one side and shops and cafes on the other, you will lack for nothing!

An amazing collection of art work, it was actually difficult to know where to start, so just take it room by room. You can easily spend a whole day there.

A nice and cosy park between busy roads. But the atmosphere in this park is unique to Madrid. Good place to sit down and watch the people coming and going.

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.
