Parque del Retiro

25 Sep

This afternoon some friends and I wondered around more of the city and into Parque del Retiro. The park is absolutely gorgeous and is apparently the equivalent to Central Park in NYC. (Madrid is constantly compared to NYC here, the way Barcelona is compared to L.A.) Here are some pictures!


Approaching the first walkway from the main entrance.

Fountain in the middle of the park. Madrid has a LOT of fountains and they're all beautiful!

My FAVORITE part of the park. Parque del Retiro has Central Park beat on the canoe-paddling area. My boyfriend and I will be doing this when he visits 🙂

Another walkway. I love the fall leaves on the trees!

A garden at another entrance of the park.

    Marisa these pics really are amazing! Hands down the most beautiful place you have shown us so far, and the leaves on the trees are already changing. I can’t wait to see it for myself wow.
