El Capricho Park, Madrid

4.7
#3 of 52 in Parks in Madrid
Nestled in a green area in a quiet district of northeast Madrid, El Capricho Park provides an interesting and relaxing escape from the bustle of the big city. Construction originally began in 1787, the age of Romanticism, and the park’s features reflect that style. Wander along the shaded pathways and discover the many statues, sculptures, and monuments scattered across the park's 14 hectares (34.6 acres). Seek out the intricate designs of the Palace of the Dukes of Osuna, as well as the small chapel located in a wood. Public transportation is available from central Madrid on both buses and the Madrid Metro system. To visit El Capricho Park on your trip to Madrid, use our Madrid tour itinerary maker site .

  • If you can visit him one day of autumn is beautiful or also in spring, filled with ponds and surprises at every turn... It is worth going up to there

  • Finally got to come here! It’s only open on the weekends so it’s less busy than other parks but very beautiful!! Don’t bring food because it’s not allowed (there are lockers and staff to watch if you do). It would definitely be even more beautiful later in the spring with flowers are in bloom
  • Very nice garden specially during early spring days. I visited the other day for the first time and I liked it very much. Fortunately, it is not very well known by tourists so it is not crowded.
