Who doesn’t love a good sunset? If sitting on a roof top with a glass of sangria isn’t your thing and you fancy being out in nature viewing the beautiful colours painting the skies and without spending any money, here is the list for you. If you are wondering where to be when the clock hits 21:30 here is a guide to the 4 best spots to watch the sunsets in Madrid and how you can get to them on public transport.
Yes, this does translate as seven boobs. Even though its located a bit out of the centre, 34 minutes on line 1 (light blue) If you fancied more of a peaceful evening and a great view, this place for you. Take your picnic blanket, your favourite snacks and charge up the batteries in your camera and your portable speaker. Arguably the best view of the city, during your time in Madrid, taking a trip to here is a must.
Casa De Campo
Centrally based, either get off at Casa de Campo metro stop the final stop on Line 5 (green) spend some of the day here and stop off at Lago on the 10 Line (Blue) from a dip in the pool and a lie in the sun. A hidden oasis in the urban jungle, this is a great place to visit for a break away from the concrete heat, here you can enjoy the sunset in the late evening but also make a day out of it. You can also take a journey up the cable cars which allow you to see the skyline of Madrid, or go on a walk through the nature. Grab a picnic and your best friends and get away from the city for a while.
Temple de Debod
Public Service Announcement: only go here if you are prepared to be swamped with loved-up couples. Ignoring this fact, this is my favourite sunset spot. Not only do you have an amazing view of the sky line, the park is situated around a beautiful temple which you can feast your eyes on. Situated 15 minutes’ walk through the park from Gran via and from Plaza de España metro stop, the calming and romantic atmosphere is great to accompany the view.
The Royal Palace of Madrid
The Final location on my list is the palace, the view is especially great from the north entrance next to the garden. If you are spending the day exploring the centre of the city, this is a great way to round it off. It may be busy but once you see it you will understand why. It’s just a walk from Opera station, and along the way you can check out the Opera House and the beautiful gardens.
