This area, known in English as the Art Walk, boasts art and beauty as you’ll see nowhere else in the world. Along a stretch of just over one kilometre, you’ll find the Prado Museum, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the Reina Sofía Museum, as well as a number of other institutions and buildings well worth visiting. If you're planning on visiting all three museums, we recommend you purchase the Paseo del Arte pass, which is valid for one year and allows one visit to the permanent collection of each of the three museums.


PLEASE NOTE: Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Paseo del Arte pass cannot currently be purchased.
