  • It is not possible to evaluate this large pond (almost a small lake) without taking into account the monument that stands majestically on one side of this body of water. Without such a monument would be only a pond, large, but always a pond, where to perhaps take a few boat rides (rent it costs a few euros). Instead monument and pond integrate and enhance each other, giving probably the most beautiful postcard of the park. And then, on sunny days, it's nice to see the people crowding this corner of the park, who on the boats, who sit on the bleachers of the monument, who on the banks take selfies.

  • It is a wonderful pond and enabled for boating. In the nineteenth century it was larger but reduced to build the monument to King Alfonso XIII.

  • Very nice and very big park with a good vibe going on. Lots of people and always a good place to be. It's clean and we'll maintained. Multiple restaurants in the park with a nice but basic lunch menu and bathrooms anyone is allowed to use free of charge
  • I love this entire park. In the middle of a bustling and crowded city is this space of total relaxation. People just stroll or sleep or do yoga. They lie around with friends and chat. They eat snacks of drink coffee or ice creams. It's idyllic. There are multiple free art exhibits in the park that change a few times a year, and some cafes and stalls around the central pond where you can rent little boats for fun. It's not so much a tourist attraction as a living space to spend a day in. Definitely come to retiro and definitely see the lake and the arts exhibits.
