One alternative way of seeing Madrid, is by taking the #cable car. From Madrid's Pintor Rosales, in the #Parque del Oeste, you will be able to catch the cable car (teleférico in Spanish) out to Madrid's huge #Casa de Campo, a massive park which goes on for kilometres, stretching out towards the east of the city.
Madrid Río, Madrid’s newest recreational park which opened in April of 2011, boasts 1,200 square meters of bike paths, fields, playgrounds, greenhouses, and spaces for skateboarding, football, basketball, and rock-climbing, just to mention a few. Snag a bike at the rental center and go for a smooth ride past the numerous bridges, stopping to marvel at the view of the small, yet pretty Manzanares River.
Every Sunday, the neighborhood of La #Latina buzzes with the abundant crowds that come to do some retail hunting at this enormous open-air market, which sells everything from second-hand trinkets to leather bags to antique books. El #Rastro, literally translated as “The Trail,” gets its name from the thick trail of blood that resulted from butchers dragging their livestock from the slaughterhouses at Matadero through the streets of La Latina.
