This is a beautiful park but there are a lot of them in Madrid. If you're close to the place and want to take a rest it's good. But it's not really interesting to go there just to "visit" it.

Lovely park in a peaceful winter setting. There were few people about which made it very intimate. We can imagine that in the summer it is crowded but would still come here as the gardens are spectacular.

This was a truly beautiful and peaceful oasis with a stunning view of the palace. Hubby and I enjoyed a peaceful stroll along the well maintained paths. It was so cold, the ponds were frozen over. As mentioned before, there were few people in the park. Made it feel almost private. Now for the depressing bit and a heads up... More

Right by the Palacio Real, we actually enjoyed el Parque de Retiro better (at least the gardens). There were some benches we sat at and just soaked up the sun.

We visited this garden after seeing the Royal Palace, which is beside the garden. I like the structure of the garden with its symmetry. There are usually few people in the garden, so you can rest a little in it without any noise.

The gardens close to the Royal Palace were boring and there is nothing to see. They look like they need some work done and some flowers to brighten them up. Not worth a visit.

Following the visit to the palace spent some time wandering around the park. Beautifully maintained and enjoyed the coolness from the late morning sun.

The park is surprisingly small and other than a few statues and neatly trimmed hedges is surprisingly unadorned. Okay if you are in the area (or want a quite break after the adjacent palace), but not worth a separate trip.

I cut through the Gardens going from the Plaza de Oriente to the Ermita de San Antonio, but it was quite the find and it had fantastic views of the Royal Palace (which I was unable to visit due to an event). The Gardens were well laid out and maintained. A nice place to sit and read or just relax... More

The park is very very peacefull and you'd find a handfull of people sitting about and having their food. Unfortunatley we got mugged by two professional theives who claimed to be trying to help us clean the bird droppings that was on our shirts. ( stil surprised how that happened). I am glad we are all safe and no major... More
