The montaña del Príncipe Pío is a hill in the western part of Madrid, Spain.


It is named after prince Guillermo Pío de Saboya, a member of the Pio di Savoia family, whose wife Juana de Moura owned property there. Later, barracks (Cuartel de la Montaña) were constructed there. The Madrilene rebels who fought the Napoleonic invaders were executed there on the morning of 3 May 1808, as painted by Francisco de Goya.


Around the 1960s, the barracks were demolished to make room for the Parque del Oeste. The former location of the barracks is now the site of the Temple of Debod, a Nubian temple given by the Egyptian government to Spain in gratitude for Spanish help in saving antiquities during the building of the Aswan Dam.

  • It may not be the best shopping mall I’ve ever been to but it was still nice to visit it on an afternoon and have dinner at Starbucks  more »
  • Not a bad shopping center, easy to get to via the metro train, seemed like a variety of shops however was not overly impressed.  more »

  • The train station itself looks very nice. It looks a a bit like a historical place but amneties are very modern. I found it a bit difficult to get out of the station and took a wrong exit out as there were no clear exit signs anywhere, some parts of the station look like they're under construction but temporary signs don't help.
  • you arrive here and you need a ticket. the desk can't make them, machines only for new tickets. there are 4 types of tickets machines and not all are ok if you don't have a metro personal card (with photo). the time it takes to try all and the first train has gone... than you try to see where to go before to use the ticket to enter: impossible, the only small screen is inside. if you are looking for a bus, and it's "darsena" even better... good luck
