Madrid just does not run out of popular hangouts, and this is the most popular of all. It’s practically always crowded, especially in the weekends, when the families all come out and so do every kind of street performer imaginable- jugglers, painters, musicians, and dancers…even fortune-tellers! The highlights here are:

  • Museo del Ejercito: A small military museum with a nice collection of armor and the cross that Columbus took with him to the New World.
  • Cason del Buen Retiro: A museum of 19th and 20th-century paintings, notably of those by Joaquin Sorolla.
  • The Lake: Hire a boat, and check out the monument to King Alfonso XII and the colloade.
  • The Crystal Palace
  • The Palacio de Velazquez
  • The Rosaleda Garden and its statue dedicated to Satan.

The park is a popular site of international exhibitions.

Parque Del Retiro Reviews & Ratings

  • Lots of space and plenty of grass to sit back and relax. Plenty of trails to wonder around on and lots of shade and activities to do. Always busy - especially on weekends and is well maintained. They are actively renovating it to make it even better. Very pleased with this park and great to see such a large area in the middle of a city dedicated to citizens and tourists alike. Absolutely worth a stroll through the park while you're here.

  • Favourite place in Madrid. Great spot to hang out and enjoy the sun and have a picnic. If you find the right bench for people watching you cant go wrong. Plenty of activity from sun bathers, salsa dancing, football. Worth a visit. The fountain and monuments are fantastic.

  • Good chill out experience wandering around the park, with boating lake and cafes. Spent several hours just relaxing on a lovely sunny day. There's a lot to see and do here, but for us it was a place to be a way from the hustle and bustle of the city and to wake up after our overseas flight. The Crystal Palace, the pond and boating opportunities make this a great park!

  • What an amazing experience! This park is massive and I didn't really know about it until I browsed through Google maps. Easy to get to if you use the metro. There are people everywhere enjoying the amazing scenery and the whole park has a laid back and beautiful feel to it. There are buildings, walkways, food vendors and more sprinkled throughout. Honestly you can spend a whole day here just exploring.

  • The park should be a miss for tourists. nice but ordinary layout. the buildings are lovely but their events aren't worth the time. the crystal palace is v pretty on a lovely small man made lake This place is a great way to chill out, even in the heat you can have a relaxing walk as there is plenty of shade. The crystal palace in the middle of the is a good photo opportunity and the small museum across from it acts as an overflow for the reina Sofia museum. There are plenty of statues to admire and learn about and a boating lake to have fun on. There are kiosks dotted about too for snacks and refreshments Great place to come for exercise or to stroll and take in the architecture. Particularly liked the "Crystal Palace".
