This part of the Madrid's long north-south artery, between Cibeles Square and Atocha Station, had been long time ago a common place where Madrileños show themselves off, at the time when the size of the city allowed that social pastime. Now that use of the street makes no sense, but it is still a nice walk, with the Botanical Garden... More

Really nice place to relax a bit after walking so much during the day. There are playgrounds so the kids can be entertained for a while.

In the center of Madrid, Paseo del Prado takes you to the Museum of Prado,the Thyssen Museum and the Queen Sofia Center of the Arts, but also provides a wonderful area for relaxation between visits to the museums. It is clean, has fountains, benches, the locals love it, and being there you just feel like a local.

Some places have a lot of hype and fortunately they live up to it. The Prado is one of those places. The collection of European painting is deep and wide. It's a place where you can get lost in reflection and beauty. This summer the Bosch exhibition is a standout. The works are wonderfully restored and displayed. Bosch's work is... More

Suprising how many trees there are in the centre of Madrid, and Paseo del Prado is no exception. The avenue is of course famous for all the nice museums, but also some nice hotels and places to eat. So overall no punishment to move from one place to the other

Went to see the Del Bosco exhibition this time was a bit crowded as usual so best to buy you tickets over the web as you will save a minimum of a Hours queue

The tree-lined street and trees made this a beautiful walk on a warm summers day - highly recommend if you have some free time and enjoy exploring holiday destinations by foot.

Staying in Paseo del Prado

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.
