This is a rather French-looking boulevard with beautiful tree cover, fountains and well maintained borders that runs through the town and leads you to the Prado, which is of course reason enough to go anyway. In a city that has sometimes forgotten the importance of green and open spaces, it is a joy to find it. It's not quiet as... More

Walking along the Paseo del Prado in the afternoon sunshine was a real pleasure. Taking in all the stunning buildings along the way. Stopping off at one of the cafes on route. Great way to walk off a long lunch!

We loved our wandering day spent exploring this park. It was fun to see families and runners and walkers enjoying the temperate day.

I enjoyed finally seeing the Prado, lots of great paintings. If you are there more than a couple days I would reccomend a second trip as it is big and too much to see at once.

Beautiful and green, and plenty of space for a stroll. You might even chance upon a demonstration or two given the contemporary politics. A must see, and you should of course hit the Prado.

Good place for a walk alone with friends or family to relax and sightseeing and then you can go to the Palácio de Cibeles.

It's a beautiful area of Madrid. Very populated but it's nice to get out and walk some instead of taking the subway/taxi/driving. It's also goes close to many cultural places that you might want to visit on your trip so I definitely recommend a stroll.

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.
