The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.

Although the park is not that exciting the history certainly is .
Parque Emir Mohamed I is only a small and to be honest by Madrid standards a rather mediocre park but the famous Muslim Walls of Madrid are contained here ,most certainly the oldest structure in Madrid constructed on the orderes of Muhammad I of Córboda in the 9th century who is widely considered to be the founder of this most beautiful of city's.
The walls are a great starting point to discover the great and rich history of Madrid and Parque Emir Mohamed I is an ideal location ,several important historical points all around this park.
Well worth checking out if your planning a holiday to Madrid.
Easy to locate along Cuesta Ramon.

I was told that this is a very old park. Well it's a small place with a very old wall that dates back a thousand years or more but that's it. There is a small park that contains a mediocre and a modest plantation. There is no entry so you only see it from outside. Will take around 15 minutes to see the whole park from outside.
