Tourists wander through the western part of this neighborhood, where you’ll find the Prado Museum and Plaza de Cibeles, while Madrileños prefer Retiro Park, where they go for a run, enjoy a good book on a bench, celebrate a birthday on the lawns or use the public library. East of the park, in the residential areas of Ibiza and Niño Jesus, you’ll find locals enjoying unhurried pre-lunch tapas.
