Travel Guide

16 miles from Madrid, the city of Parla offers a convenient location to explore the surrounding areas, with great services and entertainment options.

Parla is an old city with an extensive agrarian tradition located near Madrid, on the border with the province of Toledo. It’s constantly seeing new developments, so it can boast a wide variety of shopping and leisure offerings, in addition to the convenience of being just a short distance from other major cities to the south of Madrid. Book your holidays in Parla and use it as a base to discover the interesting surroundings.

The most important monument of Parla is the hermitage of Nuestra Señora de la Soledad from the 17th century; inside there is a well that, according to legend, has miraculous properties. You should also see the Casa de Bartolomé Hurtado, a house built in the 17th century by its owner, who was an architect.

Children will have fun flying a kite on the hill of La Cantueña. This park is part of the so-called green ring of Parla, made up of nine green spaces of different sizes, with games for children, sports and areas for the elderly. If you get time, you should head to the Parque Warner Madrid, a large amusement park located in San Martín de la Vega, just twenty minutes away by car.

If you find cheap trips to Parla during June, try to go to the Fiestas del Agua, where the young and old alike have fun throwing water over each other with buckets, balloons or water guns. Concerts and dance performances are also held.

Parla is 12 miles from Madrid, a 25-minute train ride. If you want to get about at your own pace and explore the city’s surroundings, your best option is to take your car or hire a rental car. You’ll have no problems finding accommodation with parking at very affordable prices.
