I had a walk along the Paseo after visiting the Prado. A very refreshing quarter of an hour walk towards Atocha railway station. Huge trees, stone benches, playing grounds and fountains separate you from the traffic, so you have a feeling as if you are in a forest. At the end of the Paseo, on your right there is the... More

We went to see the top 50 masterpieces of this museum. Every room was crowded and it took a while to actually see the work you were trying to see. No photography allowed at all. Buy your tickets in advance. All bags will have to be checked into a coat room. The art is varied and magnificent. Good bookstore. It... More

My wife and I walked along the Paseo del Prado after seeing the Prado Museum. This is a very pleasant place to walk because there are huge trees that give shade to people who walk. There are also some interesting tourist souvenir shops across the Prado Museum with intereting merchandise.

This a good walk to be done in Madrid, with pleasant gardens, and not much hassle. It is nothing very special, but it is a pleasant walk.

Went back to the prado with a degree of scepticism but the curator has done a wonderful job. It was a pleasure thus time as you could see things properly. Busy though unless you go during the siesta break.

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.
