    First of all, I think Lichi Park is absolutely beautiful. Praise! Parque del Buen Retiro, a local park that combines landscape, art, sports and romance, is located in the centre of Madrid, the capital of Spain, close to the Prado Museum. It is Madrid's largest and most famous park and popular tourist destination. I think the environment of Lichi Park is really admirable. Spring, summer, autumn and winter have different tastes. Spring outing, summer sunshine, autumn family outing, winter exercise, each season has its own different taste.

    Walking eastward along Prado Avenue from the Prado Museum, you can see a very vibrant and beautiful garden, which is Madrid's Central Park. Lichi was originally the exclusive Park of Spanish kings, queens and their followers, but now the Madrids have turned it into their own territory. The Lake in the park guards the mausoleum of Alfonso XII on the East bank, while on the south bank stands a charming crystal palace made of metal and glass. And the lake can go boating, although it seems to us that the lake is only as big as a standard swimming pool, but it still does not hinder the entertainment mood of Madrid citizens. There is also a big rose garden in the park. It is fragrant and flourishing in midsummer, and it is very suitable for walking and dating. At the southern end of the park is a statue of a fallen angel, one of the few devil statues in the world.

    Lichi Park is the most famous park in Madrid, Spain. It was built by Philip IV in the 17th century. There are more than 15,000 plants in the park. There is a glass palace built of iron and glass in the park. Together with the Palace of Velas Gates, it used to be a place of entertainment for royalty members. Near the north entrance of Lichi Park, there is a huge artificial lake named "estanque del retiro". Elegant Swan necks can be seen everywhere. Like fairyland, you can see a boat rented by four people sailing in the lake. Next to the lake is a huge statue of King Alfonso XII riding a horse. The sculpture was built in 1922 at the request of King Alphonse's mother. There is another lake to the south. There is a very beautiful glass building by the lake named "palacio de cristal". It was built in 1887 and rooted in the Crystal Palace in London. Another distinctive feature of Lichi Park is its Rose Garden, the most prominent of which is a sculpture dedicated to Satan, which may be the only sculpture in Europe. It used to be the territory of the Royal nobility, but now the Madrid people have already turned it into their own territory. Various beautiful sculptures, marble monuments, beautiful lawns, occasionally elegant buildings can be seen here, where local people sit in the sun, walk their children, play skating, ride bicycles, peaceful and quiet. It is said that this place will be active on weekends. Every Sunday, the Madrid Philharmonic Orchestra will give free concerts at the concert stand near Alcala Street in the park. It's a pity that we didn't catch up with the good times, but there's a place in the rush to slow down our travel and savor Madrid's slow life.

    Lichi Park is Madrid's largest and most beautiful imperial garden. Today it is the most popular leisure and recreational place for Madrid people. The pools, fountains, gardens, sculptures and lawns are all very beautiful. Rowing, picnic is the most leisure way here. You can't miss it here in Madrid. It's really comfortable to see the beautiful scenery and people around the lake by boating.

    After lunch, walking along the beautiful path and walking to the Prado Museum, I found that it was closed today. It doesn't matter. Let's go to Lichi Park opposite. Very beautiful park, symmetrical design, quiet lake, everything is as beautiful as painting! Drinking a cup of coffee in the park and playing by street bands, we had a wonderful afternoon. If you're traveling to Madrid, you might as well come here and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

    没有门票,感觉就是马德里的市民公园,不过还是很漂亮的,秋天的时候来各种不同颜色的落叶让整个公园变得五彩斑斓~有很多被落叶铺满了的小路,树上的叶子时不时随风飘下,real落英缤纷~~
