Almond blossom route in Madrid

By | 27 March, 2017 | 0 comments

Those who have never been to Madrid will be surprised of the amount of trees that line up the city’s main streets or that grow in its parks. However, they will also be stunned if they visit the Spanish capital in the month of March because that is when all the almond trees start to blossom. It is a show well worth seeing and if you don’t want to miss out on it, we propose this beautiful route that is just as good as the famous cherry blossom in Japan.

Quinta de los Molinos

This rustic recreational estate is located on Calle Alcalá, 541, next to Suances metro stop and close to IFEMA and to the future stadium of Atlético de Madrid. Inside you can find 6000 almond trees which blossom during this time of year in what is a show of white flowers that will make visitors believe they are in the middle of a snowy landscape. In Quinta de los Molinos there are 61 acres of trails and green areas where you can lose yourself and forget about the world. You can also look for the two windmills that give their name to this park which were brought from the United States in the 1920s to extract irrigation water.

Quinta de Torre Arias

Next to Quinta de los Molinos is Torre Arias, a park that was recently opened to the public where you can also find blossoming almond trees under which you can sit down to enjoy a beautiful spring day. Up to 51 species of plants and trees await you here, among which there is an oak tree which is more than 300 years old. Also, if you go on a Sunday you can go on one of the guided tours lead by the park’s environmental educators which will tell you everything you need to know about the history of this beautiful place.

Parque del Capricho

If you are still hungry for more, you can finish your blossom route with a nice stroll around Parque del Capricho. Located in Alameda de Osuna, this green lung of Madrid is one of its most romantic gardens and, of course, there are plenty almond trees blossoming. Entry is free so make the most of this time of year and visit it, because the indulgence of the Duchess of Osuna can also be yours.
