Quinta de los molinos – almond trees in bloom

The meteorological phenomenon that covered with a striking and unusual blanket of snow the streets of the city, also had adverse effects. One of them has been the temporary closure of parks and gardens due to the risk of detachment of branches, including the Quinta de los Molinos Park where you can see the most beautiful almond trees in bloom in the capital.

In this 2021 although there have been early risers who already last weekend went to Quinta de los Molinos as Instagram attests, March is still the ideal time to discover the first seeds of spring.

The days lengthen and that magical moment when nature awakens from the lethargy of the cold winter and the flowering season begins. Personally, I shake off that lethargy when finally on March 21 we change the time on the clock and the evenings become long and warm again.

ATENCIÓN: El Retiro y otros ocho parques de la ciudad (El Capricho, los Jardines de Sabatini, la Rosaleda del Parque del Oeste, Juan Carlos I, Juan Pablo II, la Quinta de Fuente del Berro, la Quinta de los Molinos y la Quinta Torre Arias) pueden cerrar si las condiciones meteorológicas son adversas. En estas ocasiones también se aconseja no visitar la Dehesa de la Villa y el Parque del Oeste, que no tienen puertas y no pueden cerrarse al público.

En el este de la ciudad, no muy lejos del nuevo estadio del Atlético de Madrid, se encuentra este parque poco conocido. Alberga todo tipo de árboles, como olivos, pinos y eucaliptos, aunque es conocido principalmente por sus maravillosos almendros que florecen en febrero y marzo.

El parque está dividido en zonas claramente diferenciadas: la zona norte, de estilo paisajístico romántico, y la zona agrícola del sur.  Todo su perímetro está cerrado y cuenta con cuatro puertas de acceso que dan a la calle Alcalá al sur, a la calle Juan Ignacio Luca de Tena al norte, a la avenida 25 de Septiembre al este y a la calle Miami al oeste.

In September 1980, following an agreement with the Municipal Urban Planning Department, three quarters of the 28.7 hectares of the original property were ceded to the Madrid City Council, allowing the rest of the park to be used for the construction of luxury housing.

In front of the park’s gate is the Suanzes subway station, corresponding to line 5. Bus lines 77 and 104 run along Alcalá Street, and lines 114 and 146 along Juan Ignacio Luca de Tena Street, if you prefer to use the northern accesses (on Juan Ignacio Luca de Tena Street and Miami Street).

After his death and after remaining semi-abandoned for some time, the park was ceded in 1980 to the Madrid City Council, which dedicated a quarter of its surface to residential construction.

If you dare, you will have the opportunity to enjoy a walk through this little known place in Madrid surrounded by this beautiful landscape, but yes, it will be a walk in which you will not be alone…
