I lost all track of time and caused my daughter needless worry at this glorious park. It’s called Parque de Bueno de Retro or Park of the Pleasant Retreat for good reason .
The park alone is reason enough to visit Madrid. Once a retreat for the royal class this public park is home to events, monuments, fountains and more.
I got off my Madrid City Tour Bus to romp through the park instead stopping to visit a museum.
I’ve never made the conscious choice to visit a park instead of a museum. As an artist—that says a lot!
