Parque del Oeste

Gardens in Parque del Oeste & Northern Madrid

Sloping down the hill behind the Moncloa metro station, Parque del Oeste is quite beautiful, with plenty of shady corners where you can recline under a tree in the heat of the day and enjoy fine views out to the west towards Casa de Campo. It has been a madrileño favourite ever since its creation in 1906.

The Paseo de Camoens, a main thoroughfare running through the park, is closed to vehicular traffic from 11pm on Friday until 6am on Monday to deter prostitution, which was once a problem here.
