Parque del Oeste, Madrid

(320+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
Spanning an area of 87 hectares (215 acres), Parque del Oeste is home to a beautiful rose garden. Inhaling the scent of the roses, it is difficult to imagine that this was once the site of a landfill. Thanks to Alberto Aquilera, a 20th-century mayor of Madrid, the public can now enjoy these landscaped grounds and pathways. The park houses the Temple of Debod, a gift from the people of Egypt to the people of Spain, reconstructed in the park in 1968 and rising ephemerally from a pool of water. Other monuments are scattered throughout the area, complementing the harmony of the landscaping.  Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Parque del Oeste by using our Madrid travel itinerary planner.

  • This Park is located in the center of Madrid, near Gran Vía. Although there is a lot of traffic around, is is usually quiet. To my I like to end the day at this place, especially if it does good. A ride for the jobs that have now, see the pond and the temple, and just when he falls sunset arrive towards the end. In fact you can see a lot of people photographing it. It is a good image. What I like least is that they usually do bottle and leave all the bottles on the ground. A penalty

  • A park well located very close to the Centre of Madrid, nearly so noisy on weekends to nice weather as own Gran Vía. Do not go by car because it is very well connected and is a little absurd to be spinning non-stop to stop the vehicle. Ideal to read, have a picnic and spend a good day with children and friends outdoor outdoor. There are people doing yoga, practicing juggling, balancing on a tightrope... That Yes, as you approach the area of the Temple of Debod have to prepare to get into a swarm of people taking pictures and bothering others with happy bats selfie. Especially if your purpose is to see the sunset maybe you must choose a day during the week. The site is spectacular and wonderful views. The worst is the crowds and the large amount of trash that is left in this site.

  • We got up the stairs from the street side of Calle Prof. Basch. Upstairs you are greeted by the sight of the temple, "Templo de Debod", with some pillars or pylons surrounded by a pool. This temple ac...  more »

  • Great park very near Madrid center. From there, you can barely ear the capital noise. This park is clean, and there is not so many tourists. Take the most of the view, it is beautiful!
  • Beautiful park! Away from the city so if you're looking for something less touristy than Retiro this is it. Also leads to the Temple of Debod.
  • This is a beautiful park with breath taking views of the city. It has nice winding paths, and just feels natural. It houses El Templo de Debod, a real Egyptian temple in Madrid. It also has a play area for kids. There are nice open areas, great for a picnic or early morning exercise. Finally, there is a cable car that you can get on to take you across to my favorite park in Madrid, Casa de Campo
  • Bonito parque en que puedes relajarte en una soleada tarde, hacer footing, correr en bici o patines y si te apetece visitar el 'Templo de Debod', un autético templo egipicio en pleno Madrid, toda una rareza.
  • Such a peaceful place. Love it.
