3. Hayedo de Tejera Negra
This park is simply magical. It is located about 165 kilometres from Madrid and is distinguished by its 300-year-old centenary trees. In this area you can see trees that reach 40 metres in height and it is possible to get there by taking the two alternative circular routes (Carretas and Robledal), and even cycle until you reach the Zarzas River. The scenery in autumn is impressive, with its many colours, edible mushrooms growing on the ground and the animals that pass by or run through its meadows, including: golden eagles, wild boars, foxes and roe deer.
4. Hayedo de Montejo de la Sierra
Another beautiful autumn landscape is this beech forest, declared a National Site of Interest. It is located about 90 kilometres from Madrid and a short distance from Jarama River. The route can be followed through a walking trail of approximately one hour. You can find incredible trees with twisted trunks that are 400 years old. Many animal species live in this 250-hectare beech forest, such as roe deer, wild boars, foxes as well as a wide variety of tree species including birch, heather and mountain ash.
5. Sabatini Gardens
Madrid is unique for many reasons and the wonderful Sabatini Gardens are part of a classicist space that you should not miss visiting. It is a romantic and magical place with the Royal Palace in the background and a large sample of white marble neoclassical sculptures, fountains that surround the magnificent rectangular pond located in the centre, flowerbeds and imposing cedars. These gardens are not just spectacular during the day as they also shine at night.
