Two parks

El Capricho is only open on weekends and holidays, but it’s well worth visiting to meander along the paths and among the old buildings. The gardens date from the 18th century when they were acquired by the duques de Osuna, some of the wealthiest nobles of the era.

Next door lies the vast Parque de Juan Carlos I, where you can borrow a bike for an hour to explore the far corners of the sculpture-filled park. Or you can just sit on the grass watching children and adults fly homemade kites high into the sky.
