Madrid Rio, Madrid
(4.4/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
Stretch your legs at Madrid Rio, a 10-km (6.2-mi) long park that runs along the banks of the Manzanares River. Set off on one of the many walking and cycling routes, play a round of tennis, or simply laze on the grass. Cool off at the park’s “beach,” where you can bask in a shallow pool or run among streams of water. Children can tire themselves out in one of 17 different play areas. Stroll through the Huerta de la Partida, an orchard restored to its 18th-century splendor, with trees growing almonds, pears, olives, figs, and more. Check what’s going on in the Matadero Madrid, a former slaughterhouse that today hosts a variety of cultural events. There are a number of places to stop for a drink or bite to eat.

  • The Manzanares is a large river, but this corridor that accompanies it in its course through the city take you party to its best conditions: relaxing views, urban profiles that allow complete knowledge of the city and, especially, good opportunities for sports. Worth take him whole.

  • It is the perfect ride for a sunny day. Walking, running, skating, bicycling... any way is good. If good weather also a picnic can be. Perfect plan of sunny Sunday!
