Parque del Oeste, Madrid
(4.4/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Located very close to the Plaza of Spain, another lungs available to Madrid, with plants, lawns, groves and above all what stands out most is the Temple of Debod. You can visit this temple to certain schedules free. Also important this park is by the excellent sunsets and magnificent them views of the Royal Palace and La Almudena.

  • This is another Madrid treasure. Although it was originally a landfill, this spacious treasure is yet another respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. Foot paths, open spaces, statues, play spa...  more »
  • It is located to the West of madrid, next to the casa de campo. Beautiful sunsets and very pleasant to stroll.

  • 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.
