I am from Madrid, love the city and want to share my special addresses. Every day a new idea, place or thing to do in Madrid. Everything has been thoroughly tested but it is only a personal opinion.

Blossom of almond trees in Madrid

Spring has sprung!! and we get a wisp of it by contemplating the flourishing almond trees. Although we are not in Japan.. you cannot complain if I tell you where to go and visit them. But do hurry up, flowers only last for 20 days...
There is a hidden place in Madrid, at the end of Alcala street, with more than 1500 almond trees. Easily reachable by metro, Suances station, and then go to the park called la Quinta de los Molinos.  You'll be among the few lucky people to watch this spectacular event mother nature offers for free.
To see some more blossom my other recommendation is Retiro Park. Near the closest entrance to Atocha on the right side getting out of the park, you have parterres with lovely flowering trees waiting for you!!
Smile and enjoy and take pictures!!

  2. The discussion is going well and I love the Buen Retiro Park to visit. This park is the one of the largest parks of the city of Madrid, Spain. I visited there during last spring break just before my yosemite bus tours. Cute little park that shares the parking lot with the El Retiro location of the Torrance Public Library. The park is full of runners, rowers and relaxation. Amazing!
