DescriptionThe Buen Retiro Park is a large and popular 350 acre park at the edge of the city center, very close to the Puerta de Alcal? and not far from the Prado Museum. A magnificent park, filled with beautiful sculpture and monuments, galleries, a peaceful lake and host to a variety of events, it is one of Madrid's premier attractions. The park was established by Spanish royalty in the 1500's and turned into a public park in the 1800's. It is very popular with runners in the city with lots of paths and things to see, and lot's of history. A loop around the outside is about 3 miles but there are lots of choices to keep from getting bored if you want to put in more miles.
