Relaxing Parque del Buen Retiro

The Parque del Retiro, just two steps from the Gran Via, is like an oasis of tranquility in the middle of a hectic city. It is pretty crowded on Sunday mornings around the Estanque Grande where people go to enjoy puppet shows, readings of tarot. The park was originally a palace garden and contains a lake where you can ride in a boat and several sources very majestic. There are many cafes throughout the park, where you'll have the opportunity to listen serenades that many talented musicians offer to the public. It is a great place to relax. [more ]

Rowing at the Parque del Retiro

We rented rowing boats at the Estanque Grande "Big pond" in the heart of the Parque del Buen Retiro. Although it was December
they weather was still quite nice. You can hire a small boat for about 4€. You only pay per boat no per person so we found it a bargain. Each boat could take up to 4 people. It was a great activity to fight the chilly wind. There were some very unexperienced rowers that kept coming in our direction so I will advise everyone to stay at a good distance from the rest. The Parque was very lifely that morning and the sun was out, so it was a great and fun day out! [more ]
