Parque del Oeste, Madrid

#8 of 39 in Parks in Madrid
Spanning an area of 87 hectares (215 acres), Parque del Oeste is home to a beautiful rose garden. Inhaling the scent of the roses, it is difficult to imagine that this was once the site of a landfill. Thanks to Alberto Aquilera, a 20th-century mayor of Madrid, the public can now enjoy these landscaped grounds and pathways. The park houses the Temple of Debod, a gift from the people of Egypt to the people of Spain, reconstructed in the park in 1968 and rising ephemerally from a pool of water. Other monuments are scattered throughout the area, complementing the harmony of the landscaping.  Arrange to visit Parque del Oeste and other attractions in Madrid using our Madrid travel route planning website .

  • Although I almost every day with my dogs, that is a privilege that not everyone has, by a matter of time I can't do my favorite ride: from Moncloa to the Temple of Debod at sunset. West Park is unbeatable at that time, the season of the year that is. Come to the temple to see the Sun, unforgettable. Only a small detail, a source of drinking water. Moreover, the parque del Oeste is must-see.

  • This a beautiful park on a hill near the Madrid University. It is where the Egyptian Temple of Debod is located. From this park you get a great view of the city of Madrid.  more »
  • If you climb to the Templo de Debod, than you surely enjoy right away from the park and beautiful views? I would have liked to have gone with the cable car, but it was not in operation at the beginning of March, unfortunately. But .... Madrid's park in which you are, you never feel in a world city. You will find anywhere!

  • Love all the parks in Spain. Always shade and breezes. Enjoy and wander my friends.
  • Amazing place. Visited during the day to take in the views and shelter within the trees from the sun, then returned in the evening to watch a stunning sunset.
  • Lovely rose garden with walks under shade as well as full sun. Relaxing place and easy to find.
  • A nice public park. We spent over an hour here.
  • amazing afternoon picnic with friends... it still summer in madrid
