What do you think about a cable car trip above Madrid?
The cable car offers locals and tourists the opportunity to rise above the city and look down on some of its most historic buildings and some of its greener districts. It covers a distance of 2.5 km from the centre of Madrid to Casa de Campo, the green heart of the city. A must!

|Romantic view of Madrid for couples|
Would you like to enjoy a magnificent view of Madrid accompanied by your partner and a glass of wine? Well, the Exe Moncloa Hotel offers one of the most attractive, romantic and cosmopolitan views of the city: the Guadarrama Mountains, Parque del Oeste, the Air Force building (el Ejército del Aire)... Everything that previously could be seen from the Moncloa Tower (Faro de Moncloa), can now be seen from this fantastic rooftop bar. In this special space you can enjoy a drink or an aperitivo, but if you prefer, we suggest the Parque del Cerro del Tío Pío, in the suburb of Vallecas.

with this amazing sunset
From any of the hills is possible to see much of the city of Madrid at a glance. Although it is almost unknown to most locals, many people come to this park to sit on one of its hills and watch the wonderful scene of the sunset. From violet to orange, from orange to red, from red to azure… The change of shades is amazing and even more breathtaking is the view of the famous capital’s monuments and buildings. A postcard-worthy view of the city and, why not, perfect for a marriage proposal. ;-)
The most romantic sunset in Madrid
|Sunset at the Debod Temple in Madrid|
Let me show you a really romantic location where you can enjoy the landscape or a walk hand in hand.
There probably isn’t a more romantic place in Madrid than the Debod Temple at dusk. This temple is considered one of the most beautiful locations to watch the sunset.
Behind the temple there’s a balcony with a magnificent view to the southwest of the city, where the trees of the Casa del Campo Park are tinged with intense colors. Below, you can also observe the grove of the Parque Del Oeste, and the scene is dominated by the remains of this wonderful temple, whose stones are illuminated when the sun reaches its lowest point, and whose stunning reflection is cast in the water of the pond. Do not miss it!
