Beautiful places to visit in autumn in Madrid
Although not all tourists and visitors know it, Madrid is much more than its tall buildings and its urban landscapes. The city has surprising spaces, open landscapes where nature celebrates the changes of season with its inexhaustible power of transformation.
Let’s see some of those nice places to visit in autumn in Madrid. Its beauty will surprise you.
#1. Retiro Park
We have spoken on other occasions about the Buen Retiro park in Madrid. But I deserved a special mention in this post.
«In autumn do not go to jewelry stores to look for gold; go to the parks. » This phrase, by the Turkish playwright Mehmet Murat Ildan, seems designed to describe the Retiro Park in the autumn.
And is that gold is the best metaphor to describe the brown leaves of its more than 15,000 trees. It´s autumn in all its beauty and splendor.
#2. Casa de Campo
It´s the largest public park in Madrid. And if you were impressed by the Retiro Lake, wait to see Casa de Campo! Inside there is a canoeing school.
Casa de Campo was a private hunting estate owned by the Crown from the 16th century until the proclamation of the Second Republic in 1931.
Its extension covers an area five times larger than Central Park, in New York, and is full of monuments and really magical corners.
The beauty of the landscape bathed by the deciduous leaves of the trees will fascinate you.
#3. The Royal Botanical Garden
One of the times when there are more requests to visit the Royal Botanical Garden of Madrid is, precisely, the autumn.
Among more than 30,000 species of plants from around the world, the trees and shrubs of evergreen green leaves are mixed with the yellow and golden tones of the deciduous leaves, creating landscape compositions unattainable for the best of painters.
#4. The Debod temple
This is another of the special places in Madrid to which we have dedicated some other space in our blog.
We already talked about him in an article about the unforgettable Madrid sunsets. But the colors and the autumn winds still make the twilight lights brighter and more enigmatic.
The Temple of Debod dates from the 2nd century BC. of C., and it was a gift from Egypt to Spain at the end of the 60s.
#5. Capricho Park
It is located in the Alameda de Osuna, and dates back to 1784. It was created for the Dukes of Osuna. It has a great sculptural heritage, and boasts a great variety of botanical specimens that embellish the landscape.
In autumn and spring, the beauty of El Capricho park reaches the sublime for its beauty.
At 15 meters below ground is his bunker of 2 square km, which belonged to the Republican side during the Civil War.
