El Capricho Park, Madrid

4.7
#3 of 53 in Parks in Madrid
Nestled in a green area in a quiet district of northeast Madrid, El Capricho Park provides an interesting and relaxing escape from the bustle of the big city. Construction originally began in 1787, the age of Romanticism, and the park’s features reflect that style. Wander along the shaded pathways and discover the many statues, sculptures, and monuments scattered across the park's 14 hectares (34.6 acres). Seek out the intricate designs of the Palace of the Dukes of Osuna, as well as the small chapel located in a wood. Public transportation is available from central Madrid on both buses and the Madrid Metro system. To visit El Capricho Park on your trip to Madrid, use our Madrid tour itinerary maker site .

  • A charming and well-kept garden. It is certainly one of the best public gardens in Madrid and is not too well-known.

  • All very neat, perfect to spend a few hours walking and enjoying the scenery. Good combination to go by public transport.

  • I was born in Madrid and did not know this park, it is beautiful and there is so much shade that you can visit him in the summer. In addition there is a palace that you can visit, I went with a guided tour. I was surprised to very well.

  • One of my favourite places in Madrid. Romantic park on the outskirts. Never crowded. So quiet and enjoyable. An absolue must. Easily accessible from El Capricho underground station. Different from anything else in Madrid. Don't miss it!!!
  • Sin duda uno de los mejores. Es un parque muy tranquilo y amplio. En la entrada hay unos guardias para controlar el aforo, pero la entrada es totalmente gratuita. Es un punto de reunión para grupos que realizan deportes al aire libre y actividades como clases de yoga. A lo largo del parque hay una gran diversidad de figuras y con carteles explicativos de la ruta.
  • Beautiful, amazing for pics and walking next to the pond. You can rent a canoe. You can find places to but good and drinks. We spend 3-4 hours there just walking around and sitting next to a fountain without noticing the time.
  • Espectacular parque contemplativo. Sus jardines están espectacularmente bien cuidados. No existen puestos de comida y tampoco es permitida la introducción de alimentos para su posterior consumo dentro del mismo. No se puede andar en bicicleta, pero es ideal para tomar fotos y quedarse tumbado en la grama y conversar en pareja. Un sitio muy romántico.
  • Most people are unaware of this garden. Open to the public free during the week ends. Very green and beautiful, ideal for the couple, family. Not to be missed. A fantastic break during the hot days.
