Madrid largest Park
The tour will begin at our store located on Calle Escalinata, 10 (Plaza de la Opera). After an introduction to the Royal Palace and Cathedral of La Almudena we will address the Casa de Campo through the Cuesta de la Vega and the Athens Park. The Manzanares River and the Huerta de la Partida will be the last two stops we will make before accessing the largest urban park in Spain (more than 1700 hectares), which in the past was used as a hunting area by the Spanish royal family.
We will enter this great green zone starting with the lake, with its restaurants and recreational areas, to continue with a spectacular panoramic view from the top of a hill from where we will visualize the best skyline of our city with the Sierra de Guadarrama, the CTBA , the Telephone Building (Gran Vía), the amusement park, the zoo, the cable car and / or the pavilions of the fairgrounds.
We will also visit the Virgen del Puerto Church, rebuilt after the bombing of the Civil War and the Puente del Rey, the main access to Casa de Campo. A few meters away, the Puerta de San Vicente, also rebuilt, to end with the best view of the Royal Palace, from the Gardens of Campo del Moro.
