We walked in this area in the early evening, and it was beautiful but less crowded than the daytime. The street itself is lovely - beautiful buildings and fountains and open plazas.

If you plan to walk from the Atocha Rail Station, the Airport Bus Dropoff at Plaza Cibeles, or points in between. This is a park like path that runs down the middle of a busy street. Beats walking on the uneven, narrow sidewalks on either side. If you want fresh air while walking through a park like setting try Retiro... More

You will know doubt walk along here if you visit the art museums, archaeological museum or the retiro park. A nice change from walking along the pavement, but its still flanked on both sides by busy roads. There are chairs to sit & watch the world go by, fountains, trees and some beautiful flower beds. Somewhere I'd go en-route to... More

The place to start and end your day in Madrid. This is the area of Madrid where you can find many museums, with The Prado Museum being at the top of the list. You will also find the botanical gardens next to the Prado Museum. Wide selection of plants from around the world but also a great place to get... More

I love to walk along the Paseo del Prado after seeing the Prado Museum. There are many tall trees that give you shade. I like to walk to the CaixaForum to see their exhibitions, which are always interesting.

We were here Easter Monday so it was crowded with people but the entire area was vibrant and handled the traffic well. it us fun to simply walk and watch what takes place. Our hotel was nearby and we were here often.

Paseo del Prado is a wide boulevard in Central Madrid stretching from the Atocha station to Plaza de Cibeles. It is probably the most important boulevard of Madrid and is home to most of the major museums and some of the most famous buildings, monuments and fountains of Madrid including the Prado Museum (after which it takes its name), Reina...

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.
