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. Spend a few hours here and stroll along the Paseo, which is famous for its magnificent art. It is home to the Golden Triangle of Art,... More

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.

This avenue might not be the center of Madrid, but everyone loves its nice trees and gardens that get you to some main attractions in Madrid (museums, parks, restaurants, hotels). Absolutely lovely.

I noticed several reviews for the Prado here. This is a street that leads to the Prado. Normally it's one of my favorite walks with the tree-lined streets full of shops and cafes, but it's quite different at the end of August. Most places were closed and the trash was piled up and it smelled like urine - I was... More

Showcase of grand Madrid. Great leisurely walk to appreciate the majesty of Madrid. Lots of little side streets with nice tapas places too. Since you are there, take time to visit the Prado museum.
