Wanting to escape from the office to travel the world and see beautiful places? Who does not! But as unfortunately we cannot do this, since we have certain responsibilities, we must look for other alternatives, such as the typical weekend getaways or Sunday excursions. It’s something!
In addition, in Spain we have beautiful corners to visit, some of which can be seen from viewpoints, which help to offer a point of view of the destinations in question. And it is that the distance contributes to make them closer and contextualize what is visited in detail sooner or later. If you live in or around Madrid, you can visit some of the viewpoints that we show you below.
In the capital
We are going to stop first in the capital. There is the Cibeles viewpoint, located in the great tower of the Palacio de Correos, today the town hall, from where you can enjoy unique visits to the capital. The same happens with the viewpoint of the Vistillas, an ideal place to relax, or the viewpoint of La casa de Campo, which can be reached by cable car.
Madrid Río Park is a beautiful place to walk and do sports, but the best are its viewpoints: the Glorieta de San Vicente viewpoint, the Huerta de la Partida viewpoint, the Segovia bridge viewpoint, the viewpoint terrace from the monumental bridge of Arganzuela and the Sur viewpoint.
Sierra de Guadarrama
Of course, we also have to talk about the Sierra Madrileña, recently declared a National Park . In it you will find viewpoints as beautiful as the Mirador de la Ermita Virgen del Rosario, the Mirador del Chaparral, the Quebrantaherraduras viewpoint, the Navacerrada reservoir, the San Antonio hermitage viewpoint, the Guadarrama viewpoint, the Pelona viewpoint. and the viewpoint of Cerro del Hilo.
In addition to all those we have named, in Madrid you can also enjoy the Abantos viewpoint, in El Escorial, the El Viso viewpoint, near Alcalá de Henares, and the Paracuellos del Jarama viewpoint.
