Channels Central Park but with a more medieval flair. Great place to unwind, take pictures, or run around in. Take the metro to get there if coming from the Sol area...it's not a very convenient place to walk to.

Areat for a day out with kids or to enjoy some sun in this lovely park. A good way to reconnect with nature there are lots of lush pockets of green good for anything from practicing some peaceful yoga to a football match.

A great place to take a walk and relax. There's some cafeterias around where you can have a coffee or some tapas. I really like it.

This park is great all year round for a stroll with the family. The boating lake is lovely, as are the rose gardens and buskers add to the fun of a great morning stroll. As always, watch out for pickpockets , but a great way to relax and escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Visited this park on a crisp New Years Day as most attractions were closed. The park was very quiet, clean and well maintained. We took some nice selfies with great backdrops.
