The Basics

Its central location both geographically and culturally means El Retiro is difficult to miss if you spend any time in Madrid. Most sightseeing tours include the park, and those interested in the park’s history and modern cultural significance can explore in-depth on a guided walking tour or Segway tour of the park, stopping at points of interest, such as the Crystal Palace and Fallen Angel statue.

David was lovely even speaking in two languages. Helpful and informative on the buildings and sculpture details, including the oldest tree in the park. And the tapas was a nice addition to the tour.

I had such an amazing day with Irene. She was so knowledgeable about the history of Spain and was so patient with me keeping up. She made me want to stay and study the Spanish History. It was indeed rewarding and refreshing for there were so many fascinating true stories she told. I give this tour 2 thumps up! A definite must do when visiting Spain! Thanks again for all my awesome pictures you took for me!

When to Get There

El Retiro makes a peaceful escape from the hustle of the city just about any time, but the best time to visit is on the weekends when locals come out to play sports, read a book, enjoy a picnic, and relax. This is also when the park fills with buskers and street painters, creating quite the lively atmosphere.

El Retiro Lake

At the heart of the park sits an artificial lake, set beneath the massive Monument to Alfonso XII. For a quintessential Madrid experience, head to the park in the afternoon and rent a rowboat for a float on the lake.
