Retiro Park, Madrid

4.0 stars


Take a break in the Parque de Buen Retiro

In the middle of the non-stop city of Madrid is the tranquil Parque de Buen Retiro, a huge public garden where you can escape the hustle and bustle and relax. I would definitely recommend a stroll through the wide walkways and around the enormous lake. You can discover lovely hidden gardens, buildings, fountains and picnic areas and you can even hire boats to row on the lake. It’s worth leaving at least a couple of hours or an afternoon to explore, especially if the weather’s good. It was freezing when we went, but we still loved it! [more ]

Retiro Park

If you go to Madrid in high season, you may not want to sunbathe in the scorching heat. Don't let that put you off going to Retiro Park. Beautiful green grass makes it a perfect pace to relax or play games with friends. There are several international groups who get together at weekend to play volleyball and football. It's a great way of meeting people and making friends.

In July and August there are a number of cultural festivals going on that are a real must see, with a mix of musical delights: opera, pop, latin music, flamenco and much more. There is some stunning architecture as well and most importantly, it's near both the shopping centre of Principe Pio and the three major museums. So you could, in theory, take it all in in one day.
