I love “Parque del Retiro” or the Retiro Park in Madrid. Everytime I go there, it`s so lovely. In a way it reminds me of Central Park in New York. It`s a big park in the middle of a vivid city! And yet, when you`re there, it`s so quiet and peaceful. You can go for a walk, hire a boat or just sit in the sun and relax…
A lot of people who live in Madrid come here on Sundays with their families. Little children can ride their bikes or eat an ice cream. You can stroll through the beautiful “Rosaleda” (=Rose Garden). I went in March and unfortunately the roses weren`t blooming yet, but last year I went in May and that was the perfect time to see it`s full beauty.
Or take a walk to the Palacio de Cristal.
Either way, you`ll enjoy it!
