The Madrid Rio is a new urban beach, nature and recreation area on the banks of the Manzanares river, built over the old inner-ring road in the heart of the city only 1.5km from the Puerta del Sol. Take a pair of roller skates to explore this luscious park along the bicycle paths, to see various monuments from the Puerta del Rey gate to the Royal Palace and the shrine of the Virgin of El Puerto.
