Went on a Sunday in October when the sun was out. We loved the feel of the place. The only down side was the food. We sat at one of the many cafes and ordered a couple of beers and some sandwiches. As it was waiter service I didn't expect food in plastic cases and they were not that nice and rather expensive.

Lovely park, not far from Prado Museum. Huge lake with boats available. Enjoyed wandering in late autumn sunshine. Would be lovely in summer as there is plenty of shade from the many trees.

The park is huge with a lake around it. It is a nice place to walk around and to get away from the buzz of the city. You could spend hours walking around and still not see all of it. A very enjoyable visit.

This is great park to walk/jog through. The park is very clean and well kept. I definitely recommend going to the fountain and pool and check out the fish!!

October is such a wonderful time to be in the Retiro. The temperatures are perfect for midday walks. The fountains have water in them. And people seem much more at ease than in the heat of summer or chill of winter.
