The warm temperatures, and Daylight Savings Time, which keeps it sunny until at least 9 p.m. in Spring and Summer in Spain, are invites to all visitors of Madrid to look for the best places to watch the sunset.
If you are thinking of traveling to Madrid soon, here are some can't-miss places to see colorful and extraordinary sunsets.
Despite being near the Royal Palace, in the heart of the Spanish capital, this place is rarely crowded by tourists. Locals usually go to Vistillas Gardens to share a good time as couples or with friends. It is also the place where festivals and popular celebrations are held on certain dates.
This place offers views of the Almudena Cathedral, Manzanares River, and Casa de Campo Park. It also has several terrace bars and restaurants around, offering various food options.
Vistillas Gardens have a total of 1.74 hectares and were designed between the 1930s and 1940s by the architects Fernando García Mercadal and Manuel Herrero Palacios.
Amid the trees, fountains, stairs and lampposts of Las Vistillas stands the statue of La Violetera, by sculptor Santiago de Santiago, which depicts the famous Argentine star, Celia Gámez.
Temple of DEBOD
This is probably one of the most popular places for foreign visitors. The 2nd century BC Egyptian temple, installed in the Cuartel de la Montaña Park near the Plaza de España, was donated to Spain by the Egyptian government to prevent it from being flooded after the construction of the great Aswan Dam.
The temple was rebuilt, stone by stone, until it was opened to the public in its current location in 1972.
Inside, there are models, videos and video projections that tell the story of the temple. Outside there are some large gardens where you can see one of the most beautiful sunsets in the city.
Cerro Tío Pío Park
This park, located in the area of the Puente de Vallecas, is known as the “seven boobs park” due to the shape of its hills. The people of Madrid say that it has the best views of the entire city.
It is one of the most popular green spaces in the south of Madrid, due to its heights and slopes, meadows, cycle path and view at its highest points.
