The best places to see the most beautiful sunsets in Madrid



Madrid is a city of beautiful sunsets, especially now in autumn. It has been said that his skies are Velazqueños, because he was the one who best painted them. There are viewpoints in the tall buildings: the dome of the Almudena Cathedral, the El Corte Inglés building in Callao, the Bellas Artes rooftop, the terrace of the Riu hotel (in the Plaza de España), the Emperador hotel (in the Gran Vía), the viewpoint of the Palacio de Cibeles. But the best views are found where you can see the landscape, almost all of the Casa de Campo and the Parque del Oeste, which are also free and there is no capacity. Madrid is the European capital with the most trees. The Little Prince of Saint Exupery used to say: “When one is sad, they like sunsets.” Many at that time try to catch the sun with their hand.

Rest while the angel does his work and plows the fields for him. The patron of Madrid, in full rest, is the only one there who does not see the sunset. When the Gardens were inaugurated in 2007, they were a dalieda, but since their flowering period was very short, there are now more rose bushes.
