You don't even have to go inside to enjoy this art museum. Stand outside and admire the very unique and extremely picture perfect vertical garden on the northern side. There always a piece of sculptue in front of the building that is changed periodically.

Fascinating building four stories, with a fabulous gift store (movies, literature, art, toys), and always changing exhibits that feature interesting themes, as well as exhibits that focus on global social issues. The cafe is a nice break.

I first discovered the Caxia Forum in Barcelona a few years ago, so I made sure to put this on my list of places to visit in Madrid. First, let me say that their vertical garden is absolutely stunning! It is worth a visit even if it is the only thing you see. It is outside so you can see... More

This is the first vertical garden located very close Atocha Railway Sation. It worth a short walk, a wall of a normal house is decorated with living plants and flowers. It is huge and amising!

The museum had two great exhibitions when I was there. Both were excellent, but the "Impresionistas y Modernos" from the Phillips collection was amazing. Well curated and beautiful works of art. Plus the contemporary museum and botanical wall are worth seeing in and of themself.

What we saw was great, but it was really just the one exhibition space. The one exhibition we saw was a great evolution of art showing some wonderful individual pieces from great artists, but again, had nothing else. We were in and out in 30 minutes. The green wall outside and the museum building itself were much more interesting than... More

Staying in Paseo del Prado

Neighbourhood 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.
