Quinta de los Molinos is a 53 acre garden that can be found east of Madrid’s city centre, next to the Suanzes metro station. In 1920, César Cort Botí, professor of Urban Planning at the School of Architecture came to acquire this property which had previously belonged to Count Torre Arias. It was César who built a Mediterranean style estate, surrounded by various kinds of trees including almond and olive, and a small palace designed in the Rationalist style.
La Quinta has fountains, pools, ponds and two power generated windmills used for water irrigation and from which the park inherits its name, the Casa del Reloj Windmill and the Rosaleda de Palacio Windmill. After Cort Botí passed away in 1978, his heirs reached an agreement with the City Council for it to be declared a space for public use, which it has been since 1982, and was declared a Historical Park in 1997.
Besides all the history of the state, the park is famous for this season visits. More than fifteen hundred almond trees flowering at the same time are a show that can’t be described…
