This park’s real name is Cerro del Tío Pío, but nobody in Madrid would know what you mean. It’s informally known as el parque de las 7 tetas. Yes, you guessed it, tetas means tits. The name is hilarious and it seems to stick within the locals. This name is due to the funny form of these small hills, which frankly do resemble breasts.
Stepping forward, this location is great for having a bird’s view of Madrid. You will be able to spot almost any point of Madrid from here. You can also see the complete mountain range that surrounds the city. The contrast between the view of the skyscrapers with the background of the big snowy mountains is beautiful, especially as you lie down under the sun. El parque de las 7 tetas is perfect to picnic on top of any of its 7 small hills. If picnic is not you cup of tea, you may also sit on the terrace of El Mirador just metres away.
Weather is an important thing to take into account for this spot. There are no trees and no high structures protecting these hills. No trees means no shade, in summer avoid sun peak timings. No high structures surrounding them means windy days should be avoided. That said, if you want the best views, windy days or days when it is has rained could be the best, as Madrid’s pollution will be removed and the skies crystal clear.
Great place to have an overview of Madrid!
