Start at Atocha. Have a look at the Ministry of Agriculture. Cross to the other side and visit the Reina Sofia Art Center.
Return to Atocha and visit the bar "El Brillante", famous for its bocadillos de calamares (squid baguette)..
Go in direction to Plaza de Neptuno.
On the left you will see the Caixa Forum with its vertical garden. Entrance to Caixa Forum is free and the building itself is worth a visit.
After having a walk through the garden, just in front of the entrance is the Prado Museum, although the entrance is near to Plaza de Neptuno.
