lake with boats

The lake of the Retiro Park is more than just a pretty scenery, is a privileged place to boating in Madrid, to relax, to do something different, to demonstrate our sailing skills, to sunbathe, to pursue ducks, to play at being pirates …

Retiro Lake

The “Big Pond” already existed in the seventeenth century, but like the rest of the park it was only open to members of the Monarchy. It was used at that time to make naval representations with small replicas of large boats. Nowadays, and since 1830, the park is accessible to the public, so we can all make our own naval battles and small-scale boardings!
