What people are saying:

This monument to Alfonso XII is one of the most beautiful attraction in the Parque del Buen Retiro. It is a great place for a picnic or rent one of the many small row boats available here and spend the afternoon floating around the pond in front of the monument.

    Picturesque

    We walked through the gardens and saw the monument across the lake, lovely view but you have to get the right angle to make sure the large apartment block behind it isn't in the picture!

    Iconic Monument

    This monument faces the lake in Retiro Park. It is a half moon colonnade, a statue of the king Alfonso the 12th. It is a relaxing place to read, or just to sit down.
