El Retiro Park in Madrid may not be the largest or the most beautiful, but for sure it is the most iconic park in Madrid and one cannot leave the city before visiting it first.

By walking this park you can feel the history and spirit of Madrid.

I didn't want to miss it, so just came here for a walk! :)

In the pic, the fallen angel fountain. In the Christian tradition, he was the angel who opposed God, eventually becoming devil.

El Palacio de Cristal is one of my favorite spots in the park! Some time ago I used to work around this area so I came here during the lunch break. Not bad!

Many animals live in Retiro Park. Good chance for having some fun with the birds.

In the pic, a couple of sparrows :)
