Attractions near the Catalonia Las Cortes
Explore the stunning Museo del Prado
It would be impossible to come to Madrid and not explore the fantastic collection of museums here; none of which are more impressive than the Museo del Prado. Located just eight minute’s walk from your hotel, this popular museum is one of the city’s true highlights.
Showcasing works from the 12th- to the 19th-Century, the permanent collection here is one of the most impressive in the world. There are more than 7,600 paintings, 1,000 sculptures, 4,800 prints and 8,200 drawings on display, ensuring that your visit will most certainly be memorable. Highlights include works from Raphael, Goya and El Greco, but the list of must-see greats is long enough to keep you occupied for hours.
Wander through historic Plaza Major
Discover Madrid’s historic centre with a walk around the always-busy Plaza Mayor. Dating back to 1580, this large central square, known for its history and beautiful architecture, is a highlight for all visitors to the city. Originally designed as a place for local traders to meet, these days it’s a bustling hub of restaurants and cafes.
Keep in mind that dining here is expensive, so if you prefer to stick to your holiday budget, perhaps choose one of the eateries just outside the square. But those looking for something extra special can take a seat at Sabrino de Boton, a renowned dining venue that has earned a Guinness Book of Records title as the world's oldest restaurant.
