Yes, the Retiro Park is a must when one goes through the Spanish capital. Created in the middle of the seventeenth century, it is one of the most visited sites of Madrid. Everyone goes to the Crystal Palace to take pictures in this work of art, or to the majestic Lake where stands the statue of Alfonso XII.
But fewer people visit the gardens of Cecilio Rodriguez, or pass by the forest of Recuerdo, place down among the trees and Park, or the garden of la Rosaleda, beautiful botanical garden.
Many people go through this 118-hectare park without enjoying its beauty to its fair value. Since the Alcalá door, which marked the entry into Madrid, through the Fine Arts Academy, where you can admire Madrid from a terrace-bar, I'll take you so visit the hidden treasures of the Park. You can also enjoy the architecture of the Prado Museum, located on the side.
Finally, we're in a very unknown area of Madrid, the "Barrio of las Letras". This place owes its name to the many literary who lived here, as well as the citations written in letters of gold on the floor. You can get the House of Cervantes, which is converted into a Museum of Lope de Vega, or before the printing press where the first part of Don Quixote was made.
The tour ends in the center of Madrid, to discover the most emblematic places of the capital such as the puerta del Sol, and in the best bars for tapas typical.
If you have any special requests, the visit can of course model itself compared to your desires, and your travel preferences.
