Spending an afternoon in the Retiro Park

We will be in Madrid only four days. There are many things to see and we have doubt whether it is worth visiting the Retiro Park.

What is your opinion?

  

Re #1: Spending an afternoon in the Retiro Park

If you go in the summer I would leave it for the last hour of the afternoon, around 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and I would take a walk around the big pond, the Palacio de Velázquez and the Palacio de Cristal. If you like to take pictures they are places where you will enjoy. In summer they close quite late and the atmosphere is usually quite calm. I have visited it at different times for years and have never had problems.

No dejes de ir al Parque del Retiro, es un lugar muy bonito. La entrada es gratuita, incluida la entrada a los Palacios de Cristal y de Velázquez. En estos edificios suelen hacer exposiciones interesantes ( ambos edificios están vinculados al Museo Reina Sofia ).

Re #3: Spending an afternoon in the Retiro Park

Si tienes cuatro días, yo no lo dudaría, el parque del retiro debes incluirlo en tu recorrido. Piensa que además de ser un pulmón de Madrid, está lleno de edificios y lugares preciosos. No solo es un parque por el que pasear o un estanque para ir en barca, tiene edificios como el Palacio de Velázquez o el Palacio de Cristal que por si solos justifican su visita. Ambos edificios se pueden visitar gratis.
 
En el Parque del Retiro también hay esculturas muy espectaculares como la del Ángel caído y hermosas fuentes como la de los Galápagos. Por todos lados se respira paz y tranquilidad, no dejes de visitarlo te gustará.
