  • The park is full of very different environments, from mini tropocal forests to extensive olive groves, huge sculptures, sports areas, malls, simulated ruins... It combines very well with a visit to Capricho Park, which is neighbor.

  • I just loved it. It is the 2nd largest park in Madrid (larger than El Retiro Park) and very different. Although it does not have abundant vegetation (such as the Retiro), it has very wide walks and paths that allow you to explore the entire park. there is diversity of playgrounds that makes it very fun with many places to sit and enjoy. What is interesting are the sculptures they have throughout the park, of different artists representing diversity of themes. My recommendation is to take the train (check schedules) that last 30 min and go through the entire park explaining each of the works, who did it, their name and what they represent. To spend about 2 hours is a very nice place, quiet, without the crowds of the park the retreat and with plenty of space to play, play sports or just rest.
