Retiro Park

December 16, 2010

The main park of Madrid is Parque del Retiro, or Retiro Park. It is the Madrid equivalent of Central Park. Even in winter, the park is beautiful with different paths, gardens, fountains and a lake. It’s actually smaller now than when it was created in the 17th century. Quite interestingly, one of the fountains is of Satan – the fountain of the Fallen Angel. It is supposedly the only public monument that depicts the devil.
