Art Walk Route

Madrid is well known for its great artistic variety collected in different museums. The most important in the center are the Museo Nacional del Prado, the Reina Sofía National Museum and the Thyssen Museum, and together they form "the Paseo del Arte". It is a highly recommended route, not only because of its riches but also because of its proximity (all three are located in the eastern region of central Madrid, a few meters from each other), a great opportunity to do a day trip.

To reach, we will be located in Puerta del Sol as a central point of reference. We can move towards our destiny in two ways: down the long way, which would be down Alcalá street to Plaza de Cibeles, where we would have the opportunity to see the fountain of the Greek goddess before continuing south along the Paseo del Prado.

From there we will descend practically straight, with small deviations, and we'll meet him first Thyssen Museum (1), later with him National Prado Museum (2) and finally the Reina Sofía Museum (3).

On the other hand, We can take the short path through the Carrera de San Jerónimo and then stroll through the Plaza de las Cortes that connects with the Thyssen Museum and the Neptune Fountain, another key monument of the city of Madrid. After, we would return to Paseo del Prado and the rest of the itinerary would be to continue south as in the first option, finding in a few meters the Thyssen Museum and the Reina Sofía Museum, respectively.
