What people are saying:

Ritz park is I highly recommend a park free of charge. Park is not only large and rich content. There is a large artificial lake, sparkling can concuss boat, can see the other side on the shore of ALFONSO XII monument MONUMENTO ALFONSO assist, it is not a boring monument, around it there are many sculptures, what do you expect to find in Europe could match estimates only Paris Versailles. Theme park is divided into several pieces, each have each have landscape, Madrid palace also in it.
