Parque De El Capricho
Located in Barajas in the northern part of Madrid, this is one of the most beautiful gardens in Madrid, yet often overlooked by tourists. The beautiful garden might remind you of fairytale movies such as “The Forest of Enchantment” and “Cinderella”.
The garden was built in the 1800’s and stays open to the public throughout the year. The historical monuments here are constructed in Italian and French styles, and that, along with the spectacular flowers, manmade lakes, etc., further contribute to the overall ambiance of Parque de El Capricho.
Campo del Moro
This is one of the three captivating gardens around the Royal Palace of Madrid. Campo del Moro resembles a park more when compared to other two backyards here. You can see a dramatic flowerbed that spans from the backside of the royal palace up to the main entrance.
Apart from that, there is also an unbelievable maze of numerous trees, which extends around 20 acres of land. Campo del Moro is the ideal place for those who love spending their time taking long walks or bike riding through a nature-friendly atmosphere.
The city of Madrid employed a huge project called Madrid Rio in order to give a face-lift and to make better use of a region along the Manzanares River. The river has been one of the most popular sources for many recreational activities such as running, biking, skateboarding, basketball, etc., for the past 10 years. Apart from this, there are many open-air parks in Madrid Rio where you can exercise, or cool off at the public beach here.
