Madrid has some pretty incredible sunsets, and here are some of the best spots around the city to enjoy them.
Unarguably, the best spot in Madrid to watch the sunset is the Templo De Debod, a temple given to Madrid as a gift from Egypt. Spot lovers snuggled up with blankets on the grass, and groups of friends sipping beer and wine as they enjoy the sun slowly lowering below the horizon. The park’s elevated hilltop location looking down on Madrid’s largest park, the Casa de Campo, offers panoramic views all day long, not just during the sunset. You can spot the palace and the cathedral, as well as the Rosaleda, a beautiful rose garden that sits below the temple and park. It’s also an ideal site for budding photographers to capture the sunset, so grab your camera and join them.
This park, perched on a hill next to Madrid’s planetarium, has a number of fountains and statues, as well as plenty of space to relax and watch the sunset. You can make a day of it: start with a visit to the planetarium, and then head over to the Parque de Tierno Galvan in time for dusk. It’s also the location of Open Air Madrid, a portion of the park that’s dedicated to offering concerts and cultural events during warm weather. One of the most famous events is the Cine de Verano, an outdoor summer cinema where you can lay back in beach-style chairs and watch a movie.
