The Buen Retiro Park

One of the largest parks of the city

The Buen Retiro Park is a large and popular 1.4 km2 (350 acres) park at the edge of the city center, very close to the Puerta de Alcalá and not far from the Prado Museum.

A magnificent park, filled with beautiful sculpture and monuments, galleries, a peaceful lake and host to a variety of events, it is one of Madrid’s premier attractions. The park is entirely surrounded by the present-day city.

    Perfect spot to enjoy nature and pure air in the City center. Be sure to see the art galleries in the Crystal Palace, Palacio de Velázquez, and Casa de Vacas, 3 beautiful buildings spread in the park. The park is also an ideal place for running & sunbathing by the artificial Lake. Expect lots of gays around day & night 😉
