Weather still was cool. We walked to Retiro Park, the largest park in the city.
|monument to Alfonso XII|
|interior of the Crystal Palace|
Fountain of the Fallen Angel, said to be the only public monument to the devil. The gargoyles are interesting.
We then went in search of some lunch before returning to the Reina Sofia museum to look at the permanent collection of works after 1945..
Dinner at Botin, which describes itself as the oldest restaurant in the world.
|white asparagus with house made mayonnaise|
|garlic soup with egg|
|artichoke with jambon|
|roasted suckling pig|
|Madrid cream puffs|
The cream puffs were fried dough filled with cream. Not quite the profiterole like dessert Scott was hoping for.
