A great way to appreciate Madrid’s warm weather and beautiful landscapes is to take a visit to one of the picturesque gardens. Explore Madrid’s hidden gems by taking a leisurely stroll in the peaceful setting. One of the more exquisite is the 125 hectares of El Retiro Park, which is home to over 15,000 trees. Wander around the differently styled gardens to see the colourful flora, thriving wildlife and ancient buildings.
Hire a boat and float along the glistening lake for scenic views of the classically designed stone monument. You can visit the crystal pavilion to see the exhibited sculptures, paintings and a collection of exotic plants. See the cascading fountains that set the tone for this romantic location, which has been dubbed as Madrid’s green lungs.
