OT: El Pardo Mountain


Inside the city of Madrid, located just 8 kilometres from Puerta del Sol, Monte de El Pardo (El Pardo Mountain) is one of the best preserved Mediterranean forests in Europe. At the very least, it’s amazing to learn that it spreads out over 16,000 hectares, i.e. one fourth of the whole of the area taken up by the capital. With very few constructions and practically unvisited, this gigantic green lung is the perfect quiet spot, since visitors are not allowed in a good part of the territory.
