Madrid day 2: Parque del Buen Retiro and Mercado de San Miguel


Madrid day 2: Parque del Buen Retiro and Mercado de San Miguel

After we'd visited the Botanic Gardens, Marcus and I went on to the Parque del Buen Retiro. It's a huge park and it was nice to get into the shade and relax a little.

On the way to the park, we spotted this 'nutelleria'. I wish I'd gone and got some food, but it was waaay to hot to eat anything. The Parque del buen retiro was huge and there weren't too many people there- probably most people were sheltering indoors from the sun. Marcus and I found a nice shady bench and had a beer and some ice cream.

One of the main reasons I wanted to go was to see the crystal palace there- it was really pretty!

After the park, Marcus and I decided to head back to the airbnb and get out of the heat- it was a heatwave, after all.

In the evening, we went out for another walk around Madrid. We grabbed some macarons and tapas at Mercado de San Miguel while we were out. (Macarons are kind of our thing).

We then wandered over to the Royal Palace again to check out the sunset and the night time scenery.

The next day, we went to the Temple of Debod and the Rosaleda of the Parque del Oeste which were both really photogenic! My post on that should come out in a couple of days, so be sure to stick around :)
