Casa de Campo, Madrid

(380+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Nature / Park
Originally enjoyed by Fernando VI as a royal hunting ground, is now the largest green space in Madrid, with extensive bike and walking trails, a zoo and aquarium, sports arena, amusement park, and cable car. In contrast to the manicured grounds of Retiro Park, this area grows wild and allows visitors to see Madrid's ecosystem in its natural state. Scout out a picnic spot in the sun-dappled forest, walk along creeks, and read up on the local plant and animal life on the informational plaques. Watch for the bright green monk parakeets that flit among the treetops. Young visitors will love the many play areas and the amusement park. Finish off your visit with a ride on the cable car, taking in bird's-eye views of the Temple of Debod, the Parque del Oeste Rose Garden, and the Royal Palace on your way back to the city station, which is near Metro Argüelles.

  • It is a small palace like structure in the biggest park of Madrid. The park is very well maintained, and is lush green. There are a few lakes and eateries inside the park as well. Plus, there are some beautiful pieces of architecture as well.
  • Especially the Lago area. Great cafes and lovely walking. Or running. Or biking. Don't miss it!
  • Quite a big space to stroll around , Park, Picinic spots, Lake surrounded with resturants , Zoo amusement park,cable car, cycling track ....all in one place.
  • Massive park in Madrid. Great for getting out of the city and loose yourself around it. Exquisite vegetation and great for sports (running, cycling, walking) it offers quite a lot of options and you can take the teleférico (cable car) to get there and back from central Madrid.
  • Parque muy grande
