This was a beautiful little park with some history in it as well. I highly recommend this if you have time to leave the city center!

You can call this place the external lungs of Madrid as Retiro qualifies for tge internal. However its magnitude diversity of gardening archetecture and the ambian is surely overwhelming. Surely a nice place to relax in natures lap on a weekend afternoon.

Great garden to visit and relax in nature. Full of historical spots and with comments about what it was and when it was made next to each building. Interesting, green and fresh during the awfully hot summer months of Madrid

Not as large as other parks in the city but really beautiful. The only problem is the location, far away from the center of the city or the popular landmarks.

This place is magical when the trees are in full bloom. Families go and picnic. We went for a very nice stroll in the morning. When we were leaving around 4pm it was packed. It is very easy to get to in the Metro Capricho.

This is not a large park , it is a shelter from the hectic times of touring. The gardens and paths are very enjoyable as well as the statuary . There are no bikes runners etc . It is a relaxing and enjoyable diversion and great attraction all by itself.

Very nice, hidden little park. You may have to queue at peak times as its a well known secret! But rewarding walks and a lovely pagoda in the north make it worth the while.

Beautifully laid out and ordered gardens. Well worth a wander and a look. Gosh some of these old European cities do gardens well. These gardens are a prime example.
