Complutense swimming pool
This swimming pool is one of Madrid´s most popular spots for people to hang out in the summer and is located right in the heart one of Madrid´s biggest student areas. Especially popular with students, this swimming pool offers a discount to all students studying at Complutense University, and along with a young, lively atmosphere, the cheap bar food and drinks make for a real summer party! Make sure you, or someone you are with brings student ID, otherwise you won’t be able to get in.

If you’re looking for a slightly quieter sunbathing spot, we recommend this pool!
