Capricho Park, Madrid

(4.6/5 based on 850 reviews on the web)
Nestled in a green area in a quiet district of northeast Madrid, 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. Plan to see Capricho Park and other attractions that appeal to you using our Madrid trip itinerary maker.

  • The Park is located in a region away from the Centre of Madrid, but it is worth spending some time to move over there and enjoy the site. It is a very quiet place and it has a unique atmosphere. Great to enjoy with family and friends.

  • A Saturday morning stroll... without too much public... recommended... with children... with a parking lot out of the Park... rather hard to find... but it is worth.

  • It is a necessary Park to see for its flora, history and panoramic. It is essential and little-known

  • Great place for walking or taking wedding photos. It includes a Civil War bunker, need reservation in advance, palace and ponds.
  • A beautiful park with lovely sculptures, Greco-Roman style buildings, and many walking paths. There may be a line to enter, but the park is free. Great place to wander, sit and people watch, or stage a photoshoot. Highly recommend when looking for a day to just wander.
  • Magnífico parque
  • Great park in Madrid. Opens only during weekends and is normally crowded. Parking can be difficult in the area. Access is free but under control...if it is busy they close the entrance.
  • A gorgeous park away from the tourist routes, build by the Duchess of Osuna this incredible park has british, italian and french gardens, place where Goya used to spent sometime with the Osuna family painting for them, it has a Palace, a bridge from the Eiffel workshop, the bee house or a great sculpture of Saturn eating his children. Only open on the weekends, if you are into gardens, dont miss out, some more surprises await you there....
