This is a beautiful green space; a bit distant from the city centre but totally worth the hike for its amazing city views and dramatic sunsets. Located in the area of Puente de Vallecas, which lies in the southern part of Madrid, it makes for a wonderful walking and cycling trail too.

Fun Fact: it is popular as the ‘Park of the Seven Boobs,’  owing to the shape of its peaks.
