Parque del Oeste, Madrid

4.4
#8 of 51 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 .

  • The rose garden park in the West of Madrid, is a beautiful spot. In May there are roses contest and is a very beautiful spectacle of colors and smells. I've been several times and each time I like more.

  • Nice little park where many locals come to exercise and air dogs. We went after the cable car which was pretty easy to find.

  • The park is quit big in the middle of roads and there is no specific access to it as far as I remember since it was open to the road side. It has nice walkways and some great wooden chairs when I was there. Additional fun, it has the only Egyptian temple located outside of egypt.
  • One of my favourite places to visit in Madrid. Located just north of the royal palace, this park is a great place to run or have a picnic. Here are often people playing music and selling jewelery. There is an Egyptian temple there as well. My favourite time to go is just before sunset - the colours are absolutely amazing. Go a little before though as there can be a lot of tourists taking up the good view points.
