We visited this park on a rainy day - we had limited time in Madrid and it was on our list so we pushed through the weather. There were still people running in the park and enjoying the sites. It was very pretty and during the summer I am sure this park is packed with people and the people watching... More

Glad we chose to visit this park. Something to suit all age groups. Boating lake was lovely, but it was too cold for our 2 so called men to take us out, 😝. Did enjoy walking round it, exceptionally clean. Certainly not a visit.

Lots of cafe's to sit and soak up the atmosphere. There is a beautiful boating lake in the middle which is very entertaining to watch. Imagine Covent Garden but in a park.

This park is beautiful! We loved the different statue's and stories behind each area. Unfortunately during February they do a lot of maintenance so some of the major attractions were closed, but the park was still worth cycling around! A must see for anyone loving nature

This is such a great place to visit, it never disappoints. There are several art exhibitions that are often surprising and always interesting. You can listen to the street musicians, wander around the gardens, people watch, enjoy good food, take a boat trip on the lake, peruse the architecture, and so much more. Most of the attractions are free, the... More

Madrid is a fast, frantic dynamic city. It's absolutely fantastic. But all that energy an get wearisome. The answer: Retiro Park. The countryside right in the middle of the city. As much open space as you would ever want. Enough trees, shrubs, grass to enervate your green senses. Stunning fountains, statues (including a spectacular one of fallen angel Lucifer) to... More

From the 3 free museums inside, to the hundreds of trails and of course the statue of the fallen Angel, there's something for everyone here. In summer, make sure to watch the sunset from the steps near the lake. There is live Spanish guitar 🎸 on the weekends and it's the quintessential way to finish your trip to Madrid
