Parque del Oeste, Madrid

4.4
#9 of 56 in Parks in Madrid
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.  Arrange to visit Parque del Oeste and other attractions in Madrid using our Madrid travel route planning website .

  • Parque del Oeste is located next to the University city. The location is beautiful, clean, well cared for, pleasant and there is the "Temple of Debod" (present from Egypt to Spain), from where you can enjoy a beautiful sunset. Access is free.

  • We basically slept here all afternoon and no one bother us. Once we were awake however a lot of guys approached trying to sell us cold water. There's nice grass areas for picnics.
  • A nice change of scenery while in Madrid. The temple de Debod is within the park and the entrance was totally free though the line was super long(went around 1 pm). The park also offers a nice place to chill if you are exhausted. If you want to enter the Egyptian Temple, be sure to go early because it's totally worth the visit.
  • To get there you need to climb a little. It is worth to make some effort but don't expect nothing spectacular. You also can't walk through buildings as area is protected by security guards.
  • This is a very beautiful place. calmer than El retiro and better for running, exercising and walking your dogs. Also verse nice for a picnic
  • Heaven on Earth! Best park in Madrid Spain! Big trees and fresh atmosphere near the small river. Best for relaxing and disconnecting from the busy life of the city.
