#3 of 39 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.

  • Super nice!!! If you want a relaxing day and disconnect from the city, just go in there. You'll love it as well :)
  • Great park. Lots of beautiful things to discover. A lot of vegetation which makes Capricho Park special. The perfect place to take a walk with your family and enjoy nature.
  • Very beautiful landscapes but no good for spending the day, kids or picnics. They are not allowed!
  • Beautiful park in the suburbs of Madrid. Created at the end of XVI Century, It has reminiscences of french, english and italian parks. It is a very good place to chill out and also to take some good pictures.
  • Small and beautiful park. It only opens at weekends.
