El Capricho is a park in Madrid. The name capricho means "folly" in Spanish. It was created by María Josefa Pimentel, Duchess of Osuna (1752-1834) on her estate at Alameda de Osuna, which was then outside the city of Madrid. It is landscaped in eighteenth-century style with formal and naturalistic features. It is recognised as one of the most beautiful parks in the city.
The landscape design shows some English influence. Characteristically of continental gardens in the English style, there are a number of "eye-catchers" such as a hermit's house and a temple to Bacchus. Other features include a lake and a maze.

Super nice!!! If you want a relaxing day and disconnect from the city, just go in there. You'll love it as well :)

Great park. Lots of beautiful things to discover. A lot of vegetation which makes Capricho Park special. The perfect place to take a walk with your family and enjoy nature.

Beautiful park in the suburbs of Madrid. Created at the end of XVI Century, It has reminiscences of french, english and italian parks. It is a very good place to chill out and also to take some good pictures.

A gorgeous park, even at the cusp of Spring. Full of birds, ruins, flowers, big trees and beautiful water features.

Wonderful lesser-known park with an interesting history you can google for yourselves. No balls, no bikes (and I think no dogs either).

Most people are unaware of this garden. Open to the public free during the week ends. Very green and beautiful, ideal for the couple, family. Not to be missed. A fantastic break during the hot days.

It is a wonderful park to go and walk for hours, get lost by any of it different paths, sit down on the grass and relax, hear the birds singing and breath fresh air. It has a lot of different houses/structures hidden on the woods, the palace, a bunker and lot of lakes

Quiet and clean park, diverse flora and full of history. A bit remote from Madrid city center. Food and alcohol not allowed. Can't spend more then a couple of hours as there are no amenities.
