It you are interested in modern art, Juan Carlos I Park is the route for you. Located in northeast of Madrid, in the neighborhood of Corralejos (District Barajas), this 148 acre park features a large lake, olive groves, the Three Cultures (“Tres Culturas”) garden and 19 open-air sculptures! To get the best tour of all the sculptures, follow the well defined 5K “Sculptures Path”. If you are looking to extend your route, there are an additional 8 miles of paved trails inside this park. A free tourist train loops the park, so if you get tired you can hop on and enjoy a ride back to the start. The park is about a 20 minute (2okm) drive northeast of the center, and reachable by metro/light rail in about an hour (Campo de las Naciones (L8) Metro Station or Bus Routes 104, 112, or 122).
