We all know that it was Carlos III who devised the urban renovation of this corner of Madrid in the 18th century, but its history goes back a long time ago, specifically to the times of Felipe II, even earlier, but we will start from when Madrid began to be officially the capital of the kingdom.
Do you want to know the secrets that this main avenue of Madrid hides? A place of passage that has been losing the meaning for which it was created, that is, its enjoyment, walking and learning, because the Paseo del Prado is an environment that has a lot to tell.
We will discover that buildings existed before the ones we have today, anecdotes and national episodes of which this beautiful environment has witnessed, where we hope that it will soon be recognized as a World Heritage Site, not only for its history and heritage, but also because it is one of the few places in the world that has so many museums and exhibition halls in a few square meters.
The meeting point is marked on the map and from there we will visit several buildings highlighting
Source of the Artichoke, Neptune, Apollo and Cibeles
Royal Botanic Garden. Outside
Prado Museum. Outside
