Casa de Campo, Madrid

(360+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
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.

  • A wonderful park in the heart of the City! A perfect spot for a picnic & siesta in the midst of a busy walking day. Calm & green with plenty of shade trees. Great stop for kids who have had too much t...  more »
  • Accessible by metro (Lake station), bus or private transport. The central lake has boats for rent so you can do some exercise and take a romantic stroll with your guy/ca. Give a tour of the country, above all in Spring House always is a good idea to disconnect a little traffic and the stress of Madrid. You can get on the cable car and take a little walk by the heights

  • 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
