    On the outskirts of Madrid, but close by, we have this huge park very well prepared. For the bike or skates this correct. Although there are a lot of people, don't mind at all.

    I wanted to disconnect and I live close. You have to appreciate what you have. Spectacular views. Families, friends and couples. People of all types and ages. There are picnic areas. What do we want cafes? I loved to go back and try to be normal. Very good care and with surprising corners.

    When they planned the Park we didn't think that over time it would become a place so full. You can walk, exercise, or spend the day with family and friends. There are free bikes rental. You can arrive by car and leave it in one of its car parks. By public transport it is also easy to reach. The trees have grown and it is well maintained. Our desire is that we continue keeping it together.

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
