  The Lake
by Carmela71

ok, If you are here, is because you have not realise that Calle Serrano with all the shops are at your left side going up from Cibeles to see the Puerta de alcala! lol ... Lets leave the shopping for another ocasion, (OMG I never thought I would say that lol)

Visit the Retiro during summer, full of new experiences, people dancing, walking, jogging. Everyday something different.

My favourite entrance is through the Puerta de Alcala, also here is the underground station Retiro (line 2 the red one)

This is the lake, and here you can also rent boats. I also love the Rose garden

We are talking of 120 hectares of park in the middle of the city ......

Enjoy it!!!


After all the walking now we deserve a break or maybe you wanna join me in the visit to el PRADO MUSEUM
