The biggest park in the Spanish capital, Retiro is a great destination where you could spend the better part of your day. There is lots to do including renting a boat and rowing around the place.
The park has lots of green areas where you can have a picnic, rent a bike or just stroll along the paths and enjoy nature. There are also places to grab a coffee, beer and even a hearty lunch.
Enjoy the monuments and the green house, as well as an exhibition hall.

Going to the birds in Retiro
What I was amazed about was the fact that these green birds, I am guessing some type of parrot, are all over the place in the capital city.
This photo is from Retiro Park and there were many of these little guys on the ground eating whatever it is they eat, including a few chewing on bit of branches.
