Here you can find a nice park and a very large one. The pictures here are awsome especially at the sunset. You can walk, bike or rollerskating.

Wow! And I thought Central Park was the ultimate place to beat the city heat! The Retiro just keeps on giving - just lose yourself in the park for a couple of hours....well worth it.

During the summer this is a great place to explore alone or with a group. There are lots of attractions to aim for, with the standout being the Glass Palace. Despite the central location it didn't ever feel overly popular so this is a must...More
