Quinta de los molinos

Quinta de los molinos

Railway museummuseum in madrid, spain

The Quinta de los Molinos Park is located in the Barrio del Salvador, in the San Blas District of Madrid. It is considered a Historic-Artistic Garden, as well as an Asset of Cultural Interest.

At the northern end of the park is a small palace from the early twentieth century, near which we can find garden areas with flowers and lawns. We can also find a pond, a mill and the building known as Casa del Reloj (Clock House).

With an extension of 25 hectares, the park includes large extensions of trees, in which we can find a large number of species (olive trees, pines, eucalyptus). But, undoubtedly, the star of the park are the almond trees that bloom offering a fantastic spectacle. Normally the flowering lasts a couple of weeks and usually occurs in February, although it all depends on the weather.

San blas city hall

In September 1980, following an agreement with the Municipal Urban Planning Department, three quarters of the 28.7 hectares of the original property were ceded to the Madrid City Council, allowing the rest of the park to be used for the construction of luxury housing.

In front of the park’s gate is the Suanzes subway station, corresponding to line 5. Bus lines 77 and 104 run along Alcalá Street, and lines 114 and 146 along Juan Ignacio Luca de Tena Street, if you prefer to use the northern accesses (on Juan Ignacio Luca de Tena Street and Miami Street).

Horario del parque del retiro

ATENCIÓN: El Retiro y otros ocho parques de la ciudad (El Capricho, los Jardines de Sabatini, la Rosaleda del Parque del Oeste, Juan Carlos I, Juan Pablo II, la Quinta de Fuente del Berro, la Quinta de los Molinos y la Quinta Torre Arias) pueden cerrar si las condiciones meteorológicas son adversas. En estas ocasiones también se aconseja no visitar la Dehesa de la Villa y el Parque del Oeste, que no tienen puertas y no pueden cerrarse al público.

En el este de la ciudad, no muy lejos del nuevo estadio del Atlético de Madrid, se encuentra este parque poco conocido. Alberga todo tipo de árboles, como olivos, pinos y eucaliptos, aunque es conocido principalmente por sus maravillosos almendros que florecen en febrero y marzo.

El parque está dividido en zonas claramente diferenciadas: la zona norte, de estilo paisajístico romántico, y la zona agrícola del sur.  Todo su perímetro está cerrado y cuenta con cuatro puertas de acceso que dan a la calle Alcalá al sur, a la calle Juan Ignacio Luca de Tena al norte, a la avenida 25 de Septiembre al este y a la calle Miami al oeste.

Join us in a real Mediterranean garden and get to know the species that grow in it. If you come between the end of January and the beginning of April, you will be amazed by the almond blossom forest, a real spectacle!

Did you know that the scientific name of almond trees is Prunus dulcis and that their flowers appear on the branches even before their leaves? The current term comes from the Latin amygdala and this, possibly, from the Greek ἀμυγδάλη In numerous cultures of the past the almond tree is considered a divine tree.
