Lose yourself in the Madrid’s Bosque Encantado (Enchanted Forest)
If you’re a lover of nature and you don’t know about Madrid’s Bosque Encantado then you’re missing out on a true marvel that you must visit at least once in life. It has a botanical garden and a fairy-tale themed park, whilst spirits and other mythical creatures “live” in the woods.
Every corner has its own details and surprises, including the plants which are trimmed into thousands of unique shapes. Furthermore, the air you breathe in and the background music allow you to fully disconnect. The only drawback is that it’s located in San Martín de Valdeiglesias, far from Madrid’s city centre.
