About Buen Retiro Park

Madrid is a vast and immersive urban paradise, and Buen Retiro Park is a welcome break from the city streets with over 1,500 trees and 125 hectares of exclusively green land. A natural haven Buen Retiro Park is divided into botanical gardens, leisure facilities, lakes, cultural buildings and iconic fountains. A walk through this park is a condensed walk through Spanish culture, architecture, and activity. Its name means “Park of the Pleasant Retreat”, and this is exactly what it offers.Originally established as royal gardens, and now a public space of leisure, Buen Retiro Park is a retreat from the humming energy of the capital city.

The Botanical Gardens of the park hold some of the rarest plant life in Spain, including the Parterre Francés which hosts the oldest tree in Madrid, a 400-year-old bald cypress, and the Rosaleda rose garden that presents The Fountain of the Fallen Angel, inspired by Milton’s Paradise Lost. The lake and its monument to King Alfonso XII is an iconic image of the city, as it offers various water activities including rowing and is linked to pathways for runners, walkers, and cyclists. Impressive architecture is scattered around Buen Retiro Park, including old royal palaces housing galleries and museum collections, and The Paseo de la Argentina, an avenue lined with 18th century sculptures. The park is best experienced through a festival or carnival, the annual Book Fair, or attending the firework displays exhibited on cultural holidays.

Buen Retiro Park is located in the city centre of Madrid. Covering a square area of 1.4 kilometres, it is quite hard to miss. Close to both the Prado Museum and Puerta de Alcalá, Line 2 of the Subway,tourists can be taken to the right area when getting off at Retiro Station. The main entrances to the park are off Alfonso XII Street and Alcalá Street.

Constructed and developed over a long period of time, Buen Retiro Park is also a symbol of the city’s heritage. With the movement of Jeronimos Monastery in the 15th century, the royal family built the original park as a retreat connected to the church. Avenues and gardens were developed with the reigns of significant monarchs such as King Philip II and Queen Isabella II, and in the 20th century, the architect José Grases Riera added the impressive pond monument to Alfonso XII that dominates the park today.
