The Paseo de la Castellana is a very long avenue and you can take a walk along it. The sidewalks are good and there are many trees along this avenue. So you can take a walk for a short time or a long time. It is very safe.

Madrid has about a dozen iconic and significant streets, if you will, and this is one of them. Probably the longest stretching of the lot, Paseo de la Castellana starts at Paseo del Prado (which might was well be the Paseo de la Castellana itself as one turns into the other with little notice) where Atocha train station is, all...

There are many spectacular buildings that line the Paseo de la Castellana, some are corporate office but many are the city's most interesting palaces and sites.

Long avenue. We should try to split it in two parts. The first one from Columbus square (Plaza de Colón) to Castilla Square (Plaza Castilla). Many, many places to visit at this avenue. Think in Champs Elysées, Paris or Fith Av, Manhattan and you will understand the importance of La Castellana for Madrid. To begin with La Plaza de Colón... More

I took part in the Rock 'n' Roll Madrid marathon and I had the pleasure to run along this place. I do a lot of marathon and I discover parts of cities that one would not maybe normally visit. It is so beautiful and large and on the day I was on it I had it almost to myself. It... More

We love taking a walk here whenever we are back to Madrid. The sidewalls are wide and we love taking a look at the historic palaces and buildings found here. The Paseo de la Castellana is a very long avenue with many lanes of traffic.

This is a wide dual carriageway heading you north out of Madrid and as such I find it difficult to describe it as an "attraction", especially as it takes you through the business sector and so what you see (from Ruta 2 on the HOHO bus) is largely skyscraper offices and department stores.

A long avenue that takes you through Madrid. The largest Corte Ingles is there and quite impressive. Many restaurants, cafes and attractions. You can walk or run comfortably on a spacious sidewalk.
