Grand area of the city. From the Plaza de Ciebles to Plaza Atocha a lovely area to walk and take in the imposing surrounds. Locals and tourists alike.

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.

This was a lovely, shaded walk between many famous buildings and museums. We found a small shop across from it where they had good coffee/tea/fruit drinks. Wear good walking shoes, however, because it's all about the walk - or stopping here and there to rest and drink it all in.

A nice walk under big trees on a wide path. The path is along a very busy road in the center of Madrid. Nice important buildings around this road.

We took a stroll here as we were out of time to go see the museums. It was worth it as there are loads to see and loads of break stops on the way.

It's like waking (going) back in time...So many sights to see and appreciate. The shade of the trees evokes romantic moments.

Tree lined, this stroll could be given higher marks if it weren't for the loudness of the traffic on both sides of it and the fact that many cyclists and skate boarders tooling between the strollers are rather reckless.

Many of the major attractions are based along the Paseo del Prado, with the Prado, the Thyssen and just round the corner the Reina Sofia museums. Plenty of cafes, but varying quality, but a nice stroll and somewhere to watch the rest of the world go by.
