Another big park

Casa de Campo is located just after Manzanares river overlooking Royal Palace. The best way to reach there is to take the cablecar which costs 5 Euros for a round trip. During the cablecar trip, you can also listen to the brief information about nearby buildings and attractions.

Casa de Campo - choose your day out there

The Casa de Campo is a huge parkland just outside of the city centre. It includes a boating area on the lake, cycle tracks, walking areas, cafes, the teleferico, zoo and the parque de atraciones.
The area was known for prostitution, but this is no longer the case. The teleferico is a relaxing ride and it is a great area for a picnic at the end of the ride (make sure you get a return ticket or you have a VERY long walk!).
The park, I believe, used to belong to the royals, but it is now public parkland with a number of parking areas and three metro stations (all on line ten) depending on which area you want to go to. Near the lake there is an information hut about the grounds. (metro lago)
If you go to the Zoo or the atractions park, the metro is casa de campo, a short walk to the park and some fifteen minutes to the zoo. Most of the park does not allow cars, so it is safe to cycle and walk.
At the weekend the area is full of locals relaxing and enjoying the nature.

Parque de Atracciones

Now that I had a roller coaster buddy, of course I had to visit Parque de Atracciones (P de A)! I bought the tickets online on their website, and upon collecting our bracelets we got our picture taken.

Then we proceeded to ride the ferris wheel, roller coasters and free fall ride (Lanzadera). The park is big and didn't feel crowded, it had lots of green spaces and shadow and several fountains with drinkable water, so you could buy one bottle of something and refill it for free.

One thing I have to say about the roller coaster rides in Madrid is that they go up rather fast, so when you come down or twist and turn, you do it with force!!!! My favorite ride of the park was Abismo.

P de A is inside the Casa de Campo area and is a place where you could bring your own food and have a picnic at.

Teleférico de Madrid (Madrid Cable Railway)

Great place to relax while taking in the views of Casa de Campo. I could see as far as Parque de Atracciones, Almúdena Cathedral and the Royal Palace. Inside the cabin there's an audioguide (in Spanish only) that tells you where and what to see. Perfect after a day of walking.

Should hunger attack, there's a cafeteria where you can enjoy a good meal. There's also a souvenir store.

A place to relax

I think it is the largest parkland of Madrid. Commonly, a getaway from many Madrilenos but for sure also for local and foreign tourists. For kids and sporty, a great area and also for picnicking. There is also cafeteria nad restaurant at the cable car station. It was not one of my major listing to visit but since we were just close to the area walking at the Paseo Pintor de Rosales, we decided to have a cable car ride and spent some short tranquil moments in the park. We stayed there before sunset to catch a nice capture of the setting down of the sun at Devod Temple. Now i may say, it is a must!

ride over a huge park!

One nice half day in the city can be done with a visit to Casa de Campo, the biggest park of Madrid that was formerly a hunting spot. The best way is to use the cable teleferico that rides for about 15 minutes over the park and the Manzanares river and you can enjoy the nice view from up there. The windows weren’t clear enough though for great pics. The park is peaceful with only a few people that cycle or running. There is a lake with some cafes, an aquarium and a zoo (a big one, with pandas, snakes etc).

For a great view of the Casa de Campo

Casa de Campo used to be the royal family's hunting estate. It is located close enough to the Royal Palace, on the other side of the Manzanares River, and it was turned into a public park back in 1930. To enjoy a great view of the park and of the city, it is possible to go on a telepherique ride (aerial tramway) between the Parque del Oeste and the Casa de Campo. The two stations are 2.5 km apart, so it's just long enough to take a few pictures and admire the scenery without becoming boring. There's also a pre-recorded tape that plays during the ride to describe the landscape and buildings that can be seen.

From April to September, the teleferico is open every day from noon to sundown. Round-way tickets cost 5 Euros.

Watch out for the prostitutes!!!

Casa De Campo is a pretty area of parkland and forest which is in the west of Madrid. The zoo and aquarium are located here.

It is a large area and so good for walking. However, watch out for the numerous prostitutes that can been seen standing around various parts of the park.
