OT: Casa de Campo (Madrid)

This morning I went for a stroll to Casa de Campo with my hiking group. The Casa de Campo (Country House) is the largest urban park in Madrid. It was once a royal hunting estate, from where its name comes. Its area is more than 1,750 hectares (6.8 sq mi). It is located on the right bank of the Manzanares River and is a great place for sports like running, cycling, or for hiking.
