Parque del Buen Retiro, or Retiro Park, is one of the largest and most popular spots in Madrid. Since its opening to the public in the mid-1800s, Retiro Park has become a relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. Once you cross the threshold into this new world you are met with crisp and clean fresh air, a multitude of walking and running paths, patios and grass areas to relax, and the sweet sound of nature for miles around. Admire the breathtaking Rose Garden of Retiro, take a boat ride on the lake by the monument of Alfonso XII, walk through the architectural icon of the Crystal Palace, and step into an artist's dream at the Velzázquez Palace art museum (10 euros). With so much to do in Retiro Park, you can comfortably stay for the whole day. At the Northwest entrance of the park lies the Puerta de Alcalá, one of the iconic monumental archways in the city center. Be sure to check out some of the restaurants along the lake for some of the best sangria and churros con chocolate you´ll ever have! Many art, culture, and food festivals are set up along the pathways of the park during the summer to celebrate local artistry and small business in Madrid. Keep your eye out!
