Like cherry blossoms in Tokyo, pink-and-white almond blossoms in Madrid signal the arrival of spring. And there's no better place to enjoy them in February and March than in the 25-hecatare (62 acre) Quinta de Los Molinos Park, which has more than 6,000 almond trees. Once owned by the Count of Torre Arias, it was declared a historical park in 1997. Metro de Suanzes is at the entrance of the park, which is a charming escape from the city in any season.
