Madrid has many curious places to visit. Parks, gardens, markets that are well worth a visit. We indicate some of the least known so you can plan a visit.
The Pantheon of the Illustrious Men.
Very close to the Atocha station. It contains mausoleums of politicians such as Canalejas, Sagasta, Eduardo Dato, Ríos Rosas, Cánovas del Castillo and the Marqués del Duero.
The Capricho Park.
One of the most beautiful places in Madrid. Open on weekends. It contains some beautiful “whims” designed by the Duchess of Osuna at the end of the 18th century. Each one has a name, such as the Labyrinth, the Duelist’s Walk or the Fountain of the Frogs.
Muslim Wall of Madrid.
Emir Mohamed I founded Madrid as a military enclave. Initially it was formed by a wall that housed an Alcázar (today the Royal Palace), a mosque and the house of the emir. Next to El Anciano Rey, on the Cuesta de la Vega in front of the Almudena Cathedral, remains of that Muslim wall remain.
The Palace of Anglona.
It is a small but remarkable eighteenth century garden located in the Plaza de la Paja. Its design is reminiscent of the gardens of Andalusian palaces.
It is a market located in the old Delicias Station, where the Railway Museum is located. The second weekend of each month is organized and you can find handicrafts, gastronomic products or second-hand items.
The Berlin Park.
Located in the district of Chamartín, this small but beautiful park has such curious things as three original fragments of the Berlin Wall.
And you know, after the visit, nothing better than going through El Ancino Rey de los Vinos to regain strength. You will see what delights we have for you.
