Rosaleda Parque del Oeste
Time Out says
This more-than-30,000-square-metre rose garden is the perfect spot to woo your sweetheart, hone your photography skills, or simply stroll among the splendid flowers, fountains and greenery. It was built in 1956 by the head gardener of Madrid’s city government, Ramón Ortiz. In the centre of the rose garden you’ll find a pond where water lilies float, presided over by a statue of a nymph. The park’s many flowerbeds boast more than 500 varieties of roses, which are the subject of an annual competition for the most beautiful blossom. You can feast your eyes on them yourself for free year-round.
