Site of the Retiro and the Prado in Madrid (T) by Kyle Magnuson

I did have to research Google Maps, Wikipedia, and old pictures to make sure I visited this nomination. Though most visitors of Madrid will have strolled in and around much of the nomination, since it also includes Madrid's most iconic museums.

Components visited:

Walking the Pa­seo del Prado

Palacio de Comunicaciones

Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia

Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum

At the time of my visit in 2007, I was far too inexperienced to identify and truly appreciate the architecture of this great capital. While I think it will certainly be a long shot for inscription, this large portion of Madrid is worth exploring and I remember much of my visit as enjoyable. Indeed, being so new to most European city centers, Madrid was quite impressive.
