Madrid El Retiro Park [Jun. 22nd, 2017|06:01 pm]
Tuesday 13 June: Madrid El Retiro Park

That morning we caught the first tune to Heathrow to catch our mid morning flight to Madrid ( we both been to the airport a few times but never to Madrid so it was time to remedy it). then more tube to get to our little hotel in the Anton Martin area. Hard work with a big suitcase, 40+ degree and 3rd floor room with no stairs.
Finally started being tourist mid afternoon.
we went straight to visit El Retiro Park, beautiful with lake, sculptures alleys, palaces and gardens.
Beautiful Crystal Palace in the park , which is also an exhibition space and its pond is full of turtles and black swans <3
We also went to see the fountain of the Fallen angel, claimed to be the only known public monument of Satan.
