The Arab Wall ( Muralla Arabe ) is a nice little diversion if your planning to visit the Royal Palace. The Arab Walls are one of the oldest remaining structures in Madrid ,it's a leftover from the times of the Moorish occupation and although I...More

A neat little ancient piece of history that is worth a quick fly by. Right next to the Royal Palace so it is really not out if the way at all.

We saw this at the end of our tour of Madrid; I am fascinated by ruins, so I really appreciated that this still stands. You can't enter the area, but you can get a good view of it standing across from the crypt. I think...More

It is very small part of an old wall, right across from the crypt entry of almudena cathedral, I just founded by accident as I was walking around. I wouldn't do a special visit but I would stop by when I visit the crypt.

If you are looking for medieval history in Madrid, this is the only place you will find it. Before researching our trip, I did not realize how young, relative to Spain and Europe, Madrid was. Its only real medieval history was as a Moorish outpost...More

Located next to the Cathedral de Santa Maria de la Almudena, the Arab Wall is a remnant of Madrid's Moorish past when it was an actual defensive wall around the city. Sadly only parts of the wall remain and are not well maintained. The area...More

It's amazing and a bit ironic that the Arab wall is madrid's oldest remains from around 900AD. This is a huge wall that's impressively built. The park has several explanations about the history behind the wall. Please don't skip this historic site. It's a must...More

Arguably the oldest and most significant archeological site in Madrd, this non descript ruin is hardly recognizable. About a hundred foot long, and protected by a fence, it is littered and unmaintained. We didn't even know what we were looking at until I made a...More

This place could be better if they look after it. The garden is amazing and very details design. I don't see why they don't take care of it and make it open all the time. The plants, tress and grass are almost die.

The Moorish past in not very visible outside of Andalucia, and certainly not in cities that were not among the important centres of the era. Many traces were also eliminated and hence it is remarkable that the Spanish capital decided to conserve and show the...More
