The rich formality of public spaces in Madrid

The Passeo del Prado links several of the great museums of the city along a tree-fringed route lined by parks, fine buildings and decorative stone and water features.

It is always a pleasure to see quality works of art and the Prado has them in spades. The grounds are also lovely. Buy tickets in advance to avoid the lines.

This is a lovely tree-lined boulevard with shops on either side of the road, and impressive fountains along the way. The most impressive was the Fountain of Neptune.

The place is the area were the three main museums of madrid are on and it's a classy part of town. It's lovely to sit at a nice hotel outside and watching the world go by and having lunch. It's a lovely green part of town full of great buildings

Shady relief all along the central area of the Paseo del Prado boulevard makes a pleasant break if you are just strolling around, or if you need to sit down when your feet won't go any further without a break. Nothing really to do except take it easy and people-watch. Very near the botanical gardens which also make a very... More

I couldn't walk inside this Paseo the day I decided to meet it, coz la vuelta de Spagna (a bike national ride) was taking place and the area was closed. But still could walk alongside streets and could get a good idea of the place and sourroundings

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.
