Parque del Retiro, Madrid

Address parque de retiro, madrid Map,

This huge park has a lot to enjoy, especially on weekends when pavement artists, puppet shows, fortune tellers, musicians, and street performers distribute themselves around the park (and especially near the lake)

Rowboat rentals are available every day at the lake, and of course the ducks and birds are always available to be fed.

There is a cafe at the edge of the lake selling simple (and not great) sandwiches and drinks

    I studied in Madrid and the Parque Del Retiro is one of my favorite spots in the city. It is a great place to walk around, people watch and absorb Spanish culture! Right outside of the park, there is usually book stands that are worth a browse because most of the books are no more than 2 dollars!
