El Capricho Park, Madrid

(950+ reviews on the web)
Garden
Nestled in a green area in a quiet district of northeast Madrid, El 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 El Capricho Park and other attractions that appeal to you using our Madrid trip itinerary maker.

  • Gorgeous kompanktyj Park in Alameda de Osuna in the District 10-15-minute drive from the airport and the city centre. Park abounds in vegetation and sculptures, unlike many other parks he is more closed, few people on tracks, almost reminiscent of a labyrinth of alleys that are closed with a pond. Excellent recreation place especially in summer. Free entrance.

  • I prefer not to describe it. Go and enjoy it as La Quinta de los Molinos. Both of them, as the Retiro are the best parks in Madrid  more »
  • A garden with buildings and landscapes according to the fashions at the end of the 18th and 19th. Magnificent conservation – schedules and monitoring have much to do. Fall and spring perfect moments, but even in summer if you want an oasis of freshness. And in addition, not very large, you can explore it in detail in a couple of hours.
