While biking the other day I found this unique park. It has seven little hills and it’s known as Seven Tetas (“teta” means breast in Spanish) due to their shape. Its original name is Cerro del Tío Pío. Once you reach the top you can enjoy a complete view of the city. On the left you see Atocha train station, at the middle the Plaza de España buildings and a bit closer the famous Pirulí tower (national tv and radio broadcasting). Behind all the buildings you can see the mountains, that’s the Sierra de Guadarrama. To take a photo properly you should come here in the morning, with the sun at your back.
This neighborhood is named Numancia. It is located next to M30 and near barrio de Vallecas. This place was a slag heap, so that’s why these hills were created. A cool way to take advantage of a place full of trash. It has a kids’ park, a bike lane, a bar and a viewpoint. It is a perfect place to have a picnic or a siesta. If you don’t have a bike you can take the metro line 1 until the Buenos Aires stop or Portazgo. It covers an area of 159.745 square meters.
