The Terrace Restaurant at Palacio de Cibeles has the best location in Madrid, excellent food and outstanding friendly service. Unfortunately as it is technically outdoors they allow smoking and as tables are close together this is very intrusive and unpleasant for other diners. Why spoil...More

Worth a visit. Very picturesque. The rooftop cafe was closed during our visit but would be ideal for a break and to see the views when it's open.

Very pretty building- the entrance to all exhibitions was for free. The ceiling of stained glass is very interesting. Do not miss- go up to the top floor - order a drink and view Madrid from above

Impressive architecture. The rooftop bar is very nice and offers a great city view, though is rather pricy. Must see building in Madrid.

Just to hang out in the area is nice but the best is to go up to the roof and have some drinks as the sun sets. The fountain in front of the building is also a photo op.

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
