I love living in the city, but let’s face it, no matter how much we love our Madrid, sometimes we just need to disconnect and to be surrounded by nature. Luckily, there are tons of parks and green spaces to choose from within the city limits. One of my favorites is Casa de Campo.
This park is a HUGE green space. And believe me when I say you don’t even feel like you’re in the city when you go in! It’s perfect for running, biking, taking a stroll, whatever you prefer. I head over there whenever I need a dose of fresh air and to stretch out the legs.
One of my favorite spots in the park is “el lago”, a large lake that’s perfect for running circuits around. You get some awesome views of Madrid, and later there are some restaurants nearby where you can reward yourself with a beer after all your hard work 😉
