The Prado Museum

Calle Ruiz de Alarcón 23, Madrid 28014 Spain
109 reviews

It is considered one of the most important european museums. It has very beautiful and important art pieces from XVI to XIX from all over Europe (Rubens, Rembrandt, Rafael, Tiziano, El Bosco, Goya, Velázquez, El Greco,...) Mostly paintings of royalty or religion. I would not recommend it to people that are modern art fans; if you like surrealism or cubism ...

    Beautiful paintings, altar pieces and stained glass fill the interior of this 16th century Catholic Church on the hill behind the Prado museum. While they welcome visitors and tourists, this is an active church so please be respectful when mass is in service.

    Plaza Mayor

    Southwest of the Puerta del Sol, Madrid 28013 Spain
    0.79 mi from The Prado Museum
    128 reviews

    Plaza Mayor was, to me, the most impressive square in Madrid. The plaza is essentially the courtyard of a red palace where several different streets come together. From the center point you can look through the archways and see down each street for quite a ways.

    El Parque del Buen Retiro used to be part of my Sunday afternoon routine in Madrid. A Samosa brunch, browsing Las Pulgas for the hippest, slickest and coolest fashions and oddities and then El Parque del Buen Retiro for some serious rest and relaxation (if that's possible with 300 Spaniards in a drum circle high on hash). Love and something ...

    Stayed near here. It's basically a big transportation hub as well as shopping area which means it's terribly crowded. I wouldn't call it an attraction as there's not really anything to do or see but it's a good starting pointing for walking in Madrid.

    If you love spanish food then you have to visit San Miguel Market. Located right off Plaza Mayor it has some of the best food sampling in all of Madrid. There is no seating. You just travel from counter to counter sampling everything from olive to Sangria and everything in between. If you are a foodie dont be discouraged by ...

    This is an excellent modern art museum which is particularly strong in Spanish artists including Picasso, Gris, Miro and Dali among the most famous names. The building itself was originally a hospital but has been modernized with glass elevator shafts and a glass third level terrace.

    Great shopping area. Fun to explore and snack on some great food along the way. We started at one end and worked our way down to the other. A great way to spend an afternoon.

    Right in the middle of Buen Retiro park this gives you an opportunity to get out of the sun and enjoy some very cool experiences inside. You really have to walk to get to it, but it's a cool experience if you just stumble upon it like I did.

    Plazas are awesome and I don't know why we don't have more in the U.S. (but we should). Check out this plaza near Puerta del Sol for drinks or even dinner. It's one of the prettiest in Madrid and has great bars and restaurants in every direction. Another option for the evening is to make like the locals and wait ...

    A lovely fountain you might find yourself passing by while out and about in the city. It's very beautiful at night - be careful of the traffic if you want to get close!

    You'll be amazed with the infrastructural design of their buildings. You'll also notice every detail that was carefully applied in their big halls. Never forget to step into this street and pause for a while to see how beautiful it is.

    Plaza de Cibeles is a large plaza that features a gorgeous fountain (Fuente de Cibeles, unsurprisingly). It's lit up very nicely at night, but be careful when crossing over to it - traffic all around it is quite crazy.

    Spain's upmarket department store, with all that you would expect plus more from a top end retailer; I really love browsing through their supermarket section, everything from ostrich meat to good spanish ham.
