Gardenvisit Editorial

Once a renaissance garden and the centre of the Habsburg court in Spain, Buen Retiro has become a great public park. The gardens were neglected after the death of Philip IV in 1665 but have been restored and changed on many occasions, notably after being opened to the public in 1767 and becoming the property of the municipality in 1868.
Address - Parque del Buen Retiro, Madrid, Spain
Opening times - All year

    A wonderful park, as good as or better than any in London where we come from. Wide and narrow promenades to walk/roller skate/cycle, playgrounds for the young, cafes, fountains and water features, edifices and sculptures old and new, a boating lake, trees of every shape and kind to picnic under - they call it the 'green lung' of Madrid and they're not wrong. It can be popular but there's still room for everyone - enjoy!
