Spanning an area of 87 hectares (215 acres), Parque del Oeste is home to a beautiful rose garden. Inhaling the scent of the roses, it is difficult to imagine that this was once the site of a landfill. Thanks to Alberto Aquilera, a 20th-century mayor of Madrid, the public can now enjoy these landscaped grounds and pathways. The park houses the Temple of Debod, a gift from the people of Egypt to the people of Spain, reconstructed in the park in 1968 and rising ephemerally from a pool of water. Other monuments are scattered throughout the area, complementing the harmony of the landscaping.

Best sunset I’ve seen in a long time. Lots of people, but easy enough to find a spot. Expansive views. Fellow playing the clarinet. more »
We basically slept here all afternoon and no one bother us. Once we were awake however a lot of guys approached trying to sell us cold water. There's nice grass areas for picnics.
A nice change of scenery while in Madrid. The temple de Debod is within the park and the entrance was totally free though the line was super long(went around 1 pm). The park also offers a nice place to chill if you are exhausted. If you want to enter the Egyptian Temple, be sure to go early because it's totally worth the visit.
