Tucked away in Madrid's El Salvador neighbourhood and relatively unknown to tourists and locals alike is the beautiful Quinto de los Molinos park. Every spring around the end of February to the middle of March, dozens of almond trees come into bloom, turning the park into a rainbow of pink and white petals, green grass and blue sky. It's a sight you won't want to miss, and it provides a welcome breath of fresh air in a city known for being action-packed and energetic.
With 21.5 acres of fragrant almond, olive and eucalyptus trees, Parque La Quinta de los Molinos (which translates to "Windmill Farm Park") is the perfect place to bring a picnic or take a romantic stroll with a loved one. You'll also find picturesque fountains and a glittering lake.
Quinta de los Molinos is located off Calle Alcala just in front of Suanzes station, which is on Linea 5 (the green line). It's open every day from 6:30am to 10pm.
