El Capricho Park in Alameda de Osuna


Description

A garden with a romantic atmosphere in the French style, containing a wide variety of plants, a palace, a pavilion, a maze and a pond. What else can you ask for? The best time to visit is in spring so you can enjoy the scent of lilac and roses that wafts over the park. What will you see? Three types of garden: the French garden, the Italian and the English. The French garden has perfect clipped hedges, the Italian is the oldest, and the rest of the park is in the style of an English garden, with elm and almond trees, holm oaks and Judas trees. As you stroll around the park you'll find certain whimsical features such as the pier, the reed-covered boat house, the temple to Bacchus surrounded by 12 columns, the 'Casa de la Vieja' ('Old Lady's house'), the fort, and the bee pavilion from which you can watch the bees as they go about their work.
