Many guests that visit our street art tour, ask us about alternative things to do in town. Thus we curated a guide where we mention the best panoramic views in Madrid. Places where, with the right weather conditions, you will see the citycenter from a different point of view, escaping from the traffic’s noise. Check them out!
It is in Vallecas where you will enjoy the best panoramic views in Madrid.
For us, it won’t be the first time we listen about Vallecas, but if it is the first time for you, listen carefully! You should know that it is one of the most famous working-class neighborhoods the city’s south area. Rayo Vallecano FC is the football team of the neighborhood which is playing in the second Spanish football league. The street art in Vallecas is amazing, with murals everywhere and the best panoramic views in Madrid might be taken from Parque de las siete tetas (7 hills/boobs park). Nearest metro station is Buenos Aires (Line 1). Once you get there, type in google the name of the park and you’ll be there within 15 minutes walking distance. A place totally worth the visit!
Spring season and summer time are the most frequented periods of the year. You will also be able to listen to live music on Sundays, but not on a regular basis. Do not forget to bring your own booze because there are no chinos (convenient stores) around. We would also recommend you to bring a big beach style towel to lay down in the grass.
