The Casa de Campo is Madrid's largest park. Formerly a royal hunting estate, it is located to the west of the center of Madrid. The name means "country house", referring to a building bought in the 16th century by King Filipe II, around which other estates were then built. The park includes a lake, the city’s zoo and an amusement park. The Teleférico cable car also ends here in its journey from Paseo del Pintor Rosales.

If you want to go for a run in Madrid this is the place for you. If you'd like to take a walk through the park and get away from the city for a while this is also the place for you. There are miles of walking and running trails. Travelers enjoy great views at the park and at the southern end, you will find many restaurants that specialize in receptions and bridal parties where you can take as many photos as you want. There is an Andalucían ranch as well.

Key Highlights

The Casa de Campo park is home to stretches of green vegetation, restaurants, swimming pools and tennis courts just to mention a few. It is an ideal destination for nature lovers for its ‘authentic’ vegetation. Picnickers and cyclists overwhelm the popular byways and trails.
