Since the weather in Madrid is almost always amazing with very little rain and great temperatures almost year round, the tradition of taking un paseo each night is enjoyable and a great way to get to know the city. The paseo del prado surrounds the prado and the area around it and it is one of the best walks and... More

After the Prado, the walk around it is as grand as the art inside. Madrid is a wonderful city filled with history and magnificent avenues and parks to walk thru. A safe city, it is enjoyable to get out and just "stroll". What is equally as nice are all the wonderful cafes and tapas bars to be found along the... More

This is one of the most beatiful avenues of the city. It was conceived by Charles III ("The Mayor King") and the Count of Aranda as an avenue with buildings dedicated to scientfic purposes. The project was drawn up in 1766 by neoclassical baroque architects, Jose de Hermosilla and Ventura Rodriguez. Its layout is that of a hippodrome, with a... More

My companion and I were actually here in August 2013, but there are no more boxes available to check for 2013. I remember this wide boulevard so clearly and fondly like it was yesterday because of its beauty, the impressive buildings around, the museums of art, the outdoor sculptures and fountains in the area. The avenue is one of the... More

Beautiful avenue for a walk, with a long tree line. It is also one of the main avenues of Madrid that is linked with the Paseo de la Castellana.

Not to say that there´s no traffic here, but the abundance of trees and greenery really makes this a nice option if you´re strolling around downtown and want to take a break from the busy traffic and busy sidewalks.

It's a very nice path to take if you're going (for example) to the Prado museum, very different from most of Madrid (in a very good sense)!

Some of the Greatest Paintings in the world can be seen at the Prado. This Museum alone is worth a visit to Madrid. I wanted to see the Garden of Delights by Hieronymous Boch, but what awaited me was a room full of Hieronymous' delights. Paintings by Brugel and many other Dutch Masters grace the wall of this must see... More

When I am in Madrid I always visit the Prado Museum. Then I like to take a walk along the street. There are may big trees that line the street and it is very pleasant to walk along it. One can also see the Neptune Fountain. The setting is like that of a park.
