This is a beautiful area of Madrid. Lovely for a walk...with no hurry...lots to see. Best museums and the national library are about. Ideal for a Sunday morning walk...soaking the sun and the sights.

Beautiful statues and sculptures, beautiful fountains and typical Spanish scenes. This is a quick walk through but one that is all Madrid, the statues and stories of why they were erected keep you entertained while enjoying the architecture.

During the day time, it's truly beautiful, but pretty crowded. At night, it takes on a different life. Much less crowded, and you feel like the statues are just ready to move out of their position.

This was one of loveliest boulevards I've ever walked in Europe. Majestic, stately architecture on either side of a beautiful, well-manicured, tree-lined road. Well worth the walk to The Prado as opposed to public transport.

Broad avenue, heavily trafficked during the week, but partly closed on holidays, adjacent to the great museums, nice for a walk

A lovely area where many beautiful things are located. You may find Museo del Prado on one side and walk a little to find Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza which is also really beautiful. Grab a pair of comfy shoes and your camera, there will always be something to look at. Fun to visit with family, friends, or a loved one. And by... More

A wonderful museum full of original paintings from many European countries, ranging from the 1400s to the 1900s. Open from Monday - Saturday from 10 am - 8pm and on Sundays and public holidays 10 - 7. There is a cafe but the prices are high. You can buy tickets online if you are visiting in the high summer season.

Enjoyable place to walk along but probably not looking its best in winter time, I would imagine best enjoyed in the spring/summer.

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.
