Parque Europa: Madrid Hidden Places

During my last month in Madrid I discovered what would become one of my favorite places in the city – Parque Europa.

I learned about this park, which contains replicas of 18 of Europe’s most iconic monuments, from my first and second grade students who visited on a field trip. They raved about it so much I knew I had to visit.

I mean seriously, how cool is it that you can travel all around Europe in just more than an hour?

Yes, it’s a bit kitchy, but I did spend many years working at Walt Disney World after all, so a place like this is right up my alley. The best part – this park is free.

Here’s a look at some of my favorite monuments in the park that will give you inspiration to not only visit Parque Europa, but Europe in general.
