The CaixaForum Madrid is a museum whose expositions are renewed frequently. In this way, you can say that it is a building that will always surprise you without fear of being wrong. This place is a part of the Caixa Social Work and acts as the visible head of the eight other museums that create this Spanish entity.
The museum is located on the Paseo del Prado and forms the Triangle of Art with the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the Prado Museum. Don´t worry, if you get lost in this area and don´t know how to differentiate a Velázquez from a child´s drawing, you can always walk around this pleasant zone of Madrid and occupy yourself by looking at the buildings.
If you have consulted the work displayed in the CaixaForum and you fancy the style of art, don´t forget that the Paseo del Prado is not the best place to leave your car in the street, as there you will find SER, the regulated parking service in Madrid with blue and green zones. In the blue spaces, you can park any vehicle for up to two hours and in the green zones, parking is permitted for residents of the neighborhood that buy an annual parking card. In the case that you do not live in this section, it is possible to park for a maximum of an hour.
Now, there is a much easier way to park near the CaixaForum in Madrid: two minutes before you leave, make a reservation in a parking garage thanks to Parclick and have the security of knowing that your vehicle will be monitored during the time that it is left in the car park.
Whether it´s your goal or not to visit the CaixaForum, if you walk through the Paseo del Prado, it is inevitable that you will stop to observe the façade of the building. You will be amazed because there is an enormous and colorful vertical garden planted in the wall of this museum. It will probably make you doubt yourself since it is a little difficult to believe that there is a building behind the garden, as well as important works of art.
It should be noted that the museum is practically next to the Atocha Train Station. It is located in a place where you can easily find a bar to finish up a day of looking at art with a good dinner. If you are interested, the Kapital Theater is also a stone´s throw away. This room has one of the biggest local parties of Madrid and if that´s your speed, it is your site.
But keep in mind that not everything is rose-colored. This zone is one of the most complicated to find street parking. For this reason, we recommend that you use Parclick and choose between the possibilities of places and time durations to reserve a parking spot near the CaixaForum of Madrid.
