Known in Spanish as the Paseo del arte, this area is nothing short of paradise for art lovers. Along a stretch of just over one kilometre you will find the Prado -one of the world’s finest art galleries-, the Thyssen-Bornemisza and the Reina Sofia, as well as a number of other institutions and buildings well worth visiting. One day is nowhere near enough time to travel through over two thousand years of history, so we recommend you set aside at least two days for this tour of Madrid's Golden Triangle. If you are short of time, head for the Velázquez and Goya rooms in the Prado, the expressionist painting collection in the Thyssen-Bornemisza, and Pablo Picasso's Guernica, which hangs in the Reina Sofia. Almost the entire Art Walk runs along Paseo del Prado, a wide, tree-lined avenue, home to some of the city’s best architecture since the times of Carlos III. Three beautiful fountains depicting Cibeles, Apollo and Neptune line this boulevard designed by José de Hermosilla, the architect behind many of Madrid’s most striking buildings. CentroCentro, located in Plaza de Cibeles at the beginning of Paseo del Prado, is a great starting point from which to explore the Art Walk.
