We went for a stroll in this area which is situated between two halves of an extremely busy road. Despite the heavy traffic, it felt peaceful to just stroll or sit and look at the scenery, wildlife and city dwellers and tourists going about their business.

My husband and I walked through here on our way to the Museum and it was a nice walk. We stopped and looked at the fountain and just enjoyed the city a little.

What a wonderful stroll along this magnificent avenida. Dotting the landscape are wonderful, classic apartment buildings and along the walkway are benches to sit and relax. A beautiful walk in Madrid that proves the adage that some of life's greatest gifts are free.

Wonderful place for walks and strolls. It is like a long wide park with beautiful trees . A great pleasure to walk under their shade and revel in the beauty of the paseo. Viva Madid y Viva Espana para siempre.

Make this part of the adventure when you are visiting the Prado or the Thyssen-Bornemisza museum. It will entertain you and educate you to Madrid life. There are galleries, places for food and drinks, statues and building that are worth looking at. It will add a new demension to your museum going.

Visiting in November is not the best time to enjoy the Paseo. However, along it you find the Prado and Thyssen museums so enjoy the Paseo as you go. In fact, because I visited in November, perhaps I saw it better than in the full tourist season - long boulevard with lots of trees and elegant buildings.

My husband and I took the $5 city bus from the airport to Plaza de Cibeles. From there, we enjoyed walking the several blocks to our hotel which faced the Plaza del Paseo. Our hotel was situated about halfway between Plaza de Cibeles and the Atocha Train station so the walk along the Paseo Del Prado was an enjoyable way... More

Neighborhood Profile
Paseo del Prado
The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard is much-visited by both locals and tourists. The world-famous Prado, the Reina Sofia, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de Cibeles and Círculo de Bellas Artes cultural centers are other artsy hangouts to check out, with rooftop bars that provide impressive views of the city. While the Paseo del Prado and its roundabouts form a busy throughway in Madrid, a broad green pedestrian park in the middle is a calm and gorgeous place for a relaxing stroll. Just east of the museums, the Retiro Park is always a confluence of activity as families and friends of all ages take to the pretty paths and lawns to stretch their legs or to have a picnic.
