All year long
Madrid's Buen Retiro Park is undoubtedly the green oasis of the Spanish capital. Many go there to relax, to play sport or take some exercise (biking, rollerblading, jogging, tai-chi, etc…). The lawns and the benches are perfect for picnics. You can even spent the afternoon drifting around the lake in a boat enjoying an exceptional view of the monument dedicated to Alfonso XII, overlooking the water.
The park is also a district in its own right, where one can sense the cosmopolitan atmosphere of Madrid. The wide avenues are ideal for a stroll. You might see a fortune teller, massage practitioners, trumpet players, singers or magicians as you wander around the park… Arts enthusiasts will be overjoyed to discover contemporary art exhibitions in the famous Palacio de Cristal..
