A beautiful whimsical
Parque de El Capricho3
Why locals love it
As the name El Parque de El Capricho or "the park of whim" suggests, this surprising park was designed to satisfy all the bizarre needs and wants of a whimsical 17th-century duchess – that’s why on your walk through the park you’ll spot an artificial canal, a small temple, a modest palace and a beehouse amidst the beautiful flora.
Why you should visit it
It's simply a pretty place where you can go to take in the scenery, have a relaxing walk, find out a bit more about the unusual duchess who founded the park and read a good book. It's at its prettiest in summer when the flowers are in bloom.
You can combine a stroll in this park with a visit to the Quinta de Los Molinos park which is nearby.
