Relax Like a Royal

Once a place of rest and relaxation for the Spanish royal families, this historic park was opened to the public in the 19th century. It contains all you need for urban recreation: a lake for boating (you can rent a rowboat), beautiful monuments, and many leafy walking paths. There are heaps of places to explore in this massive park, and events and gatherings and shindigs—from children's theater productions to spontaneous bongo drum dance circles—are always happening. Go and relax in one of the most magnificent parks you'll ever visit. Just make sure to not visit after dark, as the park can be a bit dodgy.
