The Parque del Retiro is still a classic; a place filled with magic and fantastic views!
The closest metro stations are “Ibiza” or “Retiro”. Upon entering the park, you’ll breath will be taken away by the vastness, and grandeur of the scenery.
I personally suggest starting from the “Ibiza station”. From here just lose yourself in the magic and let your instincts guide you.
Ideal for a relaxing afternoon strollafter some morning shopping on Gran Va/Fuencarral/Calle de Velasques and Serrano (the best shoping streets in the city).
Make sure not to miss the following on your walk through Retiro park:
- The Palacio de Cristal: a small lake and various fountains that create a fairytale atmosphere
- The famous lake with the mini rowboats for rent (4.95€ for 45 minutes), guaranteed laughs!
- The rose garden: let yourself be enchanted by all the beautiful plants and well trimmed trees, sure to make you feel like Alice, transported down the rabbit hole and into wonderland!
